Came across this boat that looks like Witco, but I couldn't find any documentation to verify.

Can anybody confirm?

Yes that is Witco...without the backing. We have one leaning against the wall in our apartment because Leleliz has run out of places to hang stuff.

Good find!

Hey guys! I can post in this thread at long last! I've been looking for a Witco bar (or 2) forever, but still can't find one... I found these guys on vacation today though:

Tiki Shield (Still lights up!!)





And the Conquistador weapon. This thing is easily 6ft tall (taller than me anyway)..in great shape, still has the swanky red velvet on it:



I'm really more interested in finding a few Witco tiki/jungle items for my bar, so if you need the Conquistador piece for your collection, please pm me. I'd rather it go to someone that needs it more. Maybe we could trade??

I'm in Columbus, Ohio. (hopefully these pics work)

Wow, great find! That shield is easily one of the most ridiculous, cliche Jungle Exotica pieces from the Witco line, it could have hung in Graceland. A hard to find item, congrats!

Someone should carry that Conquistador piece to this year's Tiki Oasis...

I would say no. If you look at the wood, the grain is all wrong and witco carvings were carved with a chainsaw and do not exhibit chisel marks like those seen on this desk. The theme is also questionable - looks american indian or southwestern. The wood looks too heavy unlike the soft wood traditionally used for witco carving.

that said, you will still be able to fool someone on ebay into thinking this is witco and be able to sell it.

Bigbro: Thanks! I was stoked to find that shield! It already has a place of honor on my wall. Now if I can just find the bar to go under it..

Galaxywomun: Wow. 2 posts from Columbus in a row in the same Witco thread. Ohio tiki represent!

I'll do a post in marketplace for the Conquistador weapon; I'd like that to find a good home from someone on here.

WITCO art 'display easel'
adjustable top and bottom, it will hold Large or Small art.
but I think it looks best holding 'Witco'
Anyone know if they used these in the 'WITCO SHOWROOMS'?

Picked this up at the weekly flea market at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL for a whopping $20. It's 47" x 3"x 23". The green wrap is burlap. Signed "Wilrongo." Has anyone else seen one of these?
Good Hunting!
