Two I found off Craigslist for $20:






The moral of my story is always ask the person selling you the goods if they think they have any more tiki stuff...sometimes they do.

Thank you very much to everyone that has participated in this thread. I've seen so many great pieces showcased here. I picked up a piece that the seller claimed was Witco but had no confirmation until I found a picture and a description listed here. Sure enough, it was.

Well, this isn't MY Witco, although I did try to make it so. This was sold at auction tonight . . went for $275.00. It did go to somebody who'll appreciate it, though. Here he is with it. (I didn't get permission to "publish" this photo, which is why he's all blurred out. Just think of him as being in "Witco-protection."

Funny!: " I will not publicly be associated with ...WITCO!"

That piece looks like new, it's in such mint condition. Never seen it before, is it a Lyre? Are those diamonds plastic or paint?

Not sure of the material but the diamonds do stand proud of the background so it's more than just paint. Hard to say what it "is." It reminds me of some musical instrument Spock would have played on Star Trek. There is one other pictured here on this thread but it lacks the frame and background.

There were only four of us at the auction who knew what it was. The others just stood with their mouths agape as the bidding when higher and higher. One spectator shook her head and said, "I don't see it." as bidding closed. Personally, I wish there had been three fewer people there who were interested. It's damn cool!

Oh well. Off to the thrift stores.

I have his lil' bro and his twin's head! These guys live right here beside my computer and have really grown on me over the year or so I've had 'em. Even the wife has turned around!
I'm still thinking these may be the only Witco tikis in NZ and have been giving serious thought to attempting to track down that outrigger wall piece I saw listed a couple of years back....pretty sure the seller may still have it.
