I found this one today at the Goodwill, it is 11 inches tall. I'm not sure if it's Witco or a resonable facsimile.

Thanks, when I saw it sitting on the shelf it was displayed upside down and had to flip it over to recognize the tiki.

Ok, folks, what have I got here? This was purchased as a "Witco Tiki". Is it? If so, it's my first! If not, it was pretty cheap and I'll hang it anyway. It's about 15" tall.

Looks like the Witco style of a war club to me. But with all Witco or Witcolike pieces sometimes it's hard to tell at first glance what it is your looking at. For me anyway.

That one got me stumped, too! But it is so organic, it definitely looks like Witco...but Witco What!? War club seems like a good guess....

I'm gonna go look at this book I have with a lot of witco pictures in it.

Here are a few more photos. No identifiable markings that I can see. I'm inclined to believe that if the experts are stumped, it's probably not the real thing.

The first thing I thought of when I saw it was a flower in a vase.

Flower in a vase is as good a guess as any. I swear I've seen this design before, but I can't find anything on this site or in Tiki Modern that looks like it. I think I'll mount it on some kind of animal print and tell all my friends it's Witco (except for the ones who read this and know I'm a fraud...)

A couple I have in the home tiki bar




Found the stool in great condition, already re-upholstered.
The sword is 54" long with a 10" hilt. Paint is just about perfect. It hangs above the bar.
