It's obviously an owl when I have my glasses off.

With them on, I'm not so sure.

Passed on this Witco cat at the swap meet today because it looks like it was painted with some green paint. The paint was slopped on the wood frame too. The cat had some black paint in spots on it that didn't look right. Initial asking price was $40.


Last Witco I saw a couple months ago was a stool that was chock full o'termites. 5 minutes after I saw it, SOLD! Otherwise, it seems I never see witco that ain;t messed up down here.

Buzzy Out!

I love that cat. It would make a good restoration project for the right person.

Oddly enough I saw one of these at an antique show this weekend.
Here ya go Bosko.
Look at how they made sure the grain swirls are in the right
place to make the (cats?) eyes.

Thanks for the picture Skip, now I'm even more confused, the more I look the less sense it makes, Witco does that sometimes! I guess we can be sure it's a candle holder.

Oddly enough - it's the same piece, he said he was taking it to some show this weekend. If he didn't sell it was still thinking about buying it, but it just still seems like an odd piece.

Thanks again Skip, this must be one of those designs that looked better on paper than the carvers were able to execute, I do see a cat and and I do see an owl, let's hope the catalog doesn't list it as conquistador candle holder!

Yeah Celo I was looking for tells that would say it's the same one, but could not find.
It was in Cincy and was $250.00 I think, but it was a high dollar show.

And Bosko it looks kinda like a sprout too.
Like some logo I've seen before, Fertilizers, Del Monte?

I like the old faded paint on it.

Got lucky today, found a Witco Viking Ship in a Habitat Restore for 30 bucks and it's in perfect condition.

Yes it was made that way. Should have 2 bulbs.

Nice find! One of my favorite pieces.
