I'd say it was a Witco that's been painted with house paint. A good paint stripper will get that off, and often the wood is perfectly preserved underneath

These popped up and were gone just as quick on offer up today. I looked around google and saw a couple more that were in other parts of the country. They look to be "after Witco" to me but... "is this Witco?"

Yep Witco. It's called the Hexagon bar. But it's missing the little tikis that go all around the front. Looks like maybe they had them inside the bar?

Wilson-
Never seen that one before.
Sideways it looks like a key,
I canít see the hanging bracket.
are you sure doesnít go up and down?
Then it might look like a bird






Edit;
Just noticed your picture posted sideways (due to the door knob.)
So itís obviously meant to be up and down
Sorry

On the bench, Iíve never seen that style, but the wood looks right. Iíd be surprised if it wasnít Witco. Cushion has been replaced, obviously.

That bird is a really old piece, from Witcoís very first catalog page. Image is from Sven.

Thank you for the replies! Sorry the pics were sideways,I didnít know how to fix it.
Thank you so much for the catalog picture as well. I really like the bird and it seems even more special now knowing itís one of the older pieces!

A pleasant face purchased from one of the ohana at the recent Denver Modernism Show - Witco or no? It looks like it might have been part of something. A lamp, maybe?

Yep they used those faces as legs for stools. Not sure if they used them on a lamp tho.
