The paydirt was actually on the back: some documentation, albeit primarily of conquistador stuff. One of the cats bears a Witco sticker, an old price tag from Donaldson's and a Witco brochure in a plastic bag. The price on the tag was $65. The tag also bears the numbers 660, 140 (stock numbers?) and '78.
Was Witco in business in 1978?
Only one of the cats is tagged; I don't know if the price referred to one cat or both. Would anyone know if these were sold separately or in sets? I can't find any reference to a Donaldson's that was likely to sell Witco in Wichita, KS, where they were purchased in an antique store:
There is little tiki in the brochure, but I'm hoping others add material to this thread that contains more tiki, hence its posting in Collecting Tiki rather than Beyond Tiki:
