Our first Witco, this bar came from Daddy Katz in Dayton Ohio. We've just returned from the christmas party and this piece rocks. Will get some better pics soon.

Is anybody able to weigh-in on this guy? I've never seen a full-size conquistador like him.

We finally landed the infamous World of Witco globe after searching for quite a long time. We definitely paid "market price" but were happy to do so- it's a classic!

But it seems when it rains it pours... not three days later we stumbled on an interesting variant that I hadn't seen before in an antique store (and at a good price) so we did what any good obsessive compulsive would do and now have both.

I've seen earlier posts on this thread with an assortment of different styles for this piece (wire on the right instead of the left, yellow paint, etc), but has anyone seen a green and orange version like below?



The bottom globe looks a bit bigger in the photo, but both are exactly the same size and construction.

I'm wondering if anybody knows exactly how many variations are floating around out there, what the rarity/demand is of certain variants, etc?

Trouble with finding a DIFFERENT globe is that now we're talking ourselves out of finding a place for BOTH...

Great scores on those globes! Love the bottom version the best. One of the few pieces I want is a globe but I seem to find everyting but.

Hope you can make room for them both !

OK... now I'm seriously creeped out.

The day after finding our second Witco globe in as many days, we find ourselves watching the Addams Family on basic cable, and what should appear behind Pugsley....?



Too weird... I'm waiting for the Rod Serling narration to kick in.

They are all very cool Bill, I also really like your Ilmari Tapiovaara chairs. Tiki and Modern: two great tastes that taste great together!

Indeed, Duke, ain't it so! If someone can say this, it is you. You should post some pics of your house...
Those are some cool "colorful" masks from Witco's (very) late period.

I agree with Sven. C'mon Duke, let's see some pics of your digs. All I've ever seen is a few tease shots.

I posted this in its own thread and then saw this one... here is my 20 dollar find from the Rose Bowl this weekend... can anyone confirm if it is indeed a Witco for me?

OK, so a friend gave me a pair of these lamps, which I think are super cool. But the thing that has me baffled is that I've never seen a Witco lamp with the wiring/ hardware on the exterior. They have always been run directly through the carving. Any ideas?

OK. I'll post some pics of our place when I can put together some that give a sense of the space.
