In my 1950s Ranch-style house, I've mixed Tiki with my Modernist decor, in kind of a Eames-meets-Tiki aesthetic. I recently found this wall-hanging on E-bay that fits right in and will fill a bare wall near the bar.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?MfcISAPICommand=ViewItem&item=744015804

My question to Bigbro and others is: Could this be Witco? Or were there other companies in the 60s like Turner that made these decorative wall hangings? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

Sabu

Thanks BigBro!

I knew you would settle it one way or the other. Now I feel even better about my purchase!
