This cropped up in the OKC area and I was a bit interested.

http://oklahomacity.craigslist.org/fuo/1035057395.html

Anyone with knowledge know if this is a usual size (if such standard exists)? It just seems a bit small. But I don't collect Witco and I wouldn't know.

Thanks!

That is a good price for this original condition, hard-to-find set. You can see the pieces in "Tiki Modern", pages 240, 241 and 260. The bar is small, but the modern abstract Tapa/ deconstructed Tiki face design on it is very cool.

I ran across this today. Looks like Witco but I don't know if it's genuine; there were no identifying tags or marks.

It is a Witco, it looks to have been repainted and very few (carved pieces) if any have markings or something that would positively ID them.

Hi Bosco - Thanks for the info. The paint did appear to be in very good shape; it didn't look fresh but it wasn't particularly worn.

I picked these up in Florida last week. The car still has it's original yellow decor tag. The wheels, grill, windshield and steering wheel is rough cut brass. The next one is a bridge, no tag. I am assuming it is the Golden Gate Bridge?? Sven? Thanks, Scott

Sure looks like one, judging from the hands it may have had some other function (not just to hang on a wall) or maybe not?

Ya , the hands puzzle me as well, the flatter part is on the underside of the hands...also the feet are enough to hold it standing without being hung.
The rust on the hanger is another mystery why would it see moisture? pool perhaps?
I live in the WITCOLESS country Canada and I picked this up on ebay ...still It is fantastic! mahalo for the input!

I found this mug/coaster at a thrift store, I could not pass it up. I assume this is an advertising piece from another company called "Witco", but what do the experts have to say?

Picked this up at a used furniture shop today. I don't know if I should repair the small damaged areas or not. What do you think?

And this piece is from the WEET-KOH tribe from the banks of the lower Sepik river in Kaiserin Augusta Land. Totally different company!
