My guess that this is not a Witco but my curiosity led me to this thread and I feel like you guys are the most qualified to identify this piece for me.

Glad someone picked that up. I am assuming you got it at the Alameda Antique Fair? I passed on it due to no space and a Witco-hating girlfriend...



Nope, Cool Manchu...This was found at the Sacramento Antique Fair last month. Probably not sold in Alameda then made it's way to Sac. I got a really good deal on it though.

Out doing some chores and popped into a church rummage sale. Usually don't find much at these, but low and behold, over in the corner was this and boy was it dusty but in decent shape...








This is a behemoth 29"x59". The first piece I have found with the "Wilrongo" signature. I currently have no room to hang this, so I will probably end up selling it, but I do like the size of the piece and the blue color.

Later,

PTD

It is my belief that what you have there is the unfortunate offspring of an unholy union between a Witco collector and an OWL collectress

I've stayed in that room!!! It rules... there's a Witco carving on the wall in the back bedroom that you can't see in the pic too.

BigRed, my guess would be no, it's not Witco.

Ok... I found a pair of similar stools like the set posted below by sneakypete


alittle wear and tear and the cushions are long gone. Anybody have a idea what a ballpark price would be. The orig. tag for the dealer (antique. store) was 289.00pr They have them marked way down from there, but I have no idea what is fair. Thoughts anyone???
