Tiki David-

WITCO made many variations of the world map or globe, but the piece that is viewed as the most common one is what I have heard refered to as "The World of WITCO". This piece is 60x30, but can be bigger based on the frame that surrounds the carvings. I have attached the 2 pictures I have of the piece I am describing. Does yours look like this?





I don't know what kind of lucky streak you are on at the moment, but glad to know the pieces are being rescued!!

Karbora

david, yes I'm heavily into witco. I own a fair amount, and even do witco style carvings. I've been looking for one of those world maps for a while now for my modern style living room. if you love witco, you need to see the hawaiian inn in daytona, and some of the surrounding places. o.k. I'm gonna try soon with the camera to post some witco pics.

Hi there,
I'm new to Tiki Central and have been enjoying everyone's posts. I am a huge Witco fan and love all things Tiki. Here is my Witco collection. I am also including my Tiki mug collection. Would be willing to trade mugs and/or Witco pieces. Would also be interested in purchasing Witco. Email me if interested or if you just want to say hi. Thanks. Tim

Nice pad, Tim! I like how un-cluttered you kept it, tres "Tiki Modern". (My house is quite au contraire.)

I am an extreme tiki novice.. I can see the similarity and continuity in all of these pieces, but can anyone clarify for me what exactly witco is?
