I was hoping to Show off this Witco "Bongo player" carving here on this thread after I bought it today....
Unfortunately it's now the one that got away... Been looking for a Witco piece here on Maui for several years and when I saw this being advertised as an outdoor weathered Tiki statue 6' tall for $40, I was hoping it would be mine... Didn't happen...
Here's a picture of it anyways to show for the person that bought it..



The search continues...

A couple recent finds!
First an outrigger from an estate auction. I already have one, but this one is in much better condition.


Next is the one I was really excited about. From an older gentlemen that is selling his house and downsizing. It looks like it was never used and is one of the best condition wahine chairs I have seen.

Back


March was a good month!

Hell yeah, march was a good month. That chair is awesome. That new Houston tiki bar covered the orange with tapa and I think it looks really good. Personally, I wouldn't do it to one in good shape, though.

That chair is an awesome score. There is / was one in the Hawaiian Inn and in the Aku Tiki Inn in Daytona Beach. Yours is in much better condition.

That wahine carving is my favorite Witco piece. The tikis are cool, but nothing says "aloha" like a hula girl. Nice score.

I found this piece in a thrift store in Anaheim, CA. I had no idea what it was, it just appealed to me greatly on an aesthetic level. I assumed it was probably carved by some SCA or Ren Faire nut in the 1970s as a one-off piece. When putting it in the trunk, did I notice a brand burned into it that read, "Witco Inc. Mount Vernon, Wash. U.S.A." After I got home and some work on the google machine, did I realize what treasure I had found.

I still do not know much about Witco, outside of what I learned reading this thread (and my efforts to obtain Tiki Modern have been fruitless as I discovered the county I recently moved to, has a library system that does NOT participate in Inter-Library Loans)

I realize it is "Not Tiki" but I love it none the less. And even though I obtained it for $39 (it had a $100 price tag on it, but we were told that was not what it was for sale for, or even what the store owner obtained it for -- we were told he buys lots at estate sales where the individual items are sold at a discount when bought in such a manner) I am not gonna head to Ebay. Right now my partner and I are house shopping, and I look forward to giving this guy a permanent place to hang.







I would love to know more information about this piece.

I wish I had an extra $875 lying around to pick up the awesome Witco world map I ran across in an antique mall today.

I had to relieve this footsoldier from his post at the SALVATION ARMY today!


I found him crucified like Jeebus on a huge wood panel with wood screws. The employees removed it for me and I donated the panel back.


Huge win! And priced to move!

Is this the God of Good Fortune?
