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!



Actually it has a tag on it that says that exactly. I'm new and never seem to put things in the right threads. Or make new ones when there is already one.

KK, I would put some dark stain on a cloth on your fingertip and dab it on the light spots, and wipe of the excess stuff that gets on the dark wood.

Thanks Bro...I really like it. Just wasn't sure how to handle any minor damage. Were they done for export?

Thanks

Sure they were. But I like that one, the feathers and rope always help to make it seem real.

There is no doubt in my mind your piece is a Witco bar, but I am not familiar with the design. Definitely Witco though.

The Hello Kitty phone is a particularly nice feature on this bar!

Yah, is a Vitco for schurr. But I have no idea what it is supposed to depict! An abstract modern maiden? Is it Conquistador, or is it Viking-style? Who dares to say!



I guess I shouldn't have said it in German. You just can't trust those damn foreigners!

I was able to pick this up from a couple of good tiki friends today...








Haven't seen one like this before.


Even found a spot for it!

Thanks again you two! And thanks for the tour and being able to see your new additions!

Greetings Witcophiles.

May I have the honor of sharing a couple pics of my Elvis jungle room located out in the desert where Tiki is scarce but cheap? You've all seen the "African" bar, shield and spears, and leopard-print planter-bowl lamp before, but how about the Voyager loveseat, leopard-topped game table, and hacienda cigarette table? Note that the loveseat is missing the Tikis that normally appear atop the back legs on other seating from the Voyager collection. No obvious signs that they were sawed off, so my theory is that this piece was made special to fit inside a standard size door opening in a smaller residence (and it just barely fits).

The quest for the elusive Llama bar continues in the hope that one day I, too, can be just like Elvis.

Woeehew! That black velvet Elvis dream catcher/shield/drum really puts it over the top! Daring!
Dig those tres moderne rod iron chairs, a nice contrast to that clunky Witco bulk. Do your friends think you are crazy?

Those iron leg chairs are killer. And being a collector of Velvet Elvis paintings I am digging the kitsch factor of that dream catcher thing - a - bob.

Loving the pics!
