Like it says ....

Here are our 2. Both came from my wifes grandparents house. I recently found out that her grandfather owned a small import store and they may have come from there.





This guy was nailed to the banister for as long as anyone in her family can remember.

Here's my only piece of Witco; a bar stool sold as a plant stand for $45. Mine's painted and it looks original. Curious to know when they started painting this stuff . .

Aloha!! I picked up the following Witco pieces today. They aren't really Tiki but I know that there a few people on TC that collect Witco and know about this stuff. They do match (King and Queen or two Queens maybe?) each other but it looks as though they were once used for something else. Maybe the one with the candle holder is correct but the other has a few extra holes in it and has a piece of metal added to the bottom which looks like things would hang from it. They are about 7.50" wide by about 27.50" tall and are in pretty good shape. No marks on them but both have wall hangers on the back. I was thinking at first they were a back of a chair or something but the bottom and top of these are finished so I dont think they were taken off of anything.
I only try to hang on to the Tiki carvings done by Witco so if anybody is interested in these you can drop me a personal message. Thanks for looking!! TabooDan

Ok, not my Witco, but take a gander at this collection on ebay! 19 pieces sold as one, with a starting bid of $15,000!!!

ebay witco

As for myself, I found an ashtray the other day that looks "witco-esque" but I don't know if it is for sure. Any ideas?



Chris

I guaruntee they won't get 15k for that stuff. Please, Witco room sets can be found around here for a few hundred dollars... I don't care as much for the non-tiki Witco though.

Hey ! That Witco suite is here in Calgary. And it's local pick up only!

Damn! If only they didn't know what they had (and bidding was starting in the low hundreds).

Especially when it has to be re-upholstered again---that brown stuff just looks wrong.

Sigh, sometimes I hate what the BOT has done.
...I think I just won't publish that next one after all.

The ashtray is a piece I just found a month ago for $1.99 at a thrift store. The fountain is not mine yet, but I'm working on it.
