It looks like when you pasted the links from the "add images" page, you left out the BB code bookending the links. To see the proper code, click on the edit button of your post and you'll see "img" and "/img" in brackets.

Now go to the "Introductions" thread and introduce yourself!

I have this same piece and am looking for any information anyone may have on it. On the back there is W-515, I think this may be a catalog number but I'm not sure. Any idea what is worth? I may be willing to sell it.

You may have better luck on info and pricing over on Viking Central. We pretty much stick to tiki items on this forum.

Thanks for sharing. Good luck in finding info.

Cute kid.

Also........

etc. is short for "etcetera" which is what you meant in the sentence above. Ect is short for Electroconvulsive therapy ----The Spelling Police.

Those Spelling Police must have been on a donut break! Showing up to the scene of the crime a year and a half late

The Spelling Police are just making an example of this offender so that others may learn from this mistake and not commit the same crime. Now off to the donut store.

Sorry but you've run into a bunch of comedians here, There really is no other forum to show off and discuss Witco than this one. Thing is, just because it's Witco doesn't mean it's collectable. The only thing that floats peoples' boat here, (and out there in the collectors world) is either Tiki, Tribal, or Modernist Witco (certain pieces), and your piece is none of these. Though the welded metal pieces are not common, and there are certain ones that are cool, I don't think anyone will speak for this one - sorry.

Wowie, Wow, Wow!
I do most of what is on your offender list. I think your is one of them, can I use yer instead?
Sorry, Guess I should be locked up, Not good with the grammar thing.
My wife is though and she helps me when it is an item of importance, ect...
See I used to put ECT...
I will always remember you when I write that from now on, Kinda cool.
You are very good for a caveman.

Some of the most interesting people I have ever met were not well "educated" but they were
very smart in ways of the world and had great life lessons and stories to tell.
Bill Sapp quit college to start up the Kahiki.
And then some of the biggest bores were the college professors that were so impressed with their
standing in life and their colleagues that they did not see or hear the great life lessons that
These less "educated" could show them.
I would rather poke out my ear drums than to hear them talk for even one second.

Thank you, I do learn day by day from the corrections you post.

The Spelling police can forgive many common misspellings and bad grammar, but certain things are pet peeves and ect. is one of them.

I hear you GROG.
One of my pet peeves was when my dishwashers
would put the towel that they used to dry silverware
with on there shoulder, right by their hair.
