Mids&Mods, no one was laughing at your expense, you just got straight & blunt answers to your question
(Not Witco & Not Tiki) I assure you no one intended any disrespect.

I can also assure you most of the Witco experts are right here on Tiki Central
so your first post wasn't a winner, well then maybe your next post will be or the one after
nothing to get bent out of shape about & welcome to Tiki Central by the way!

We just seem gruff on the outside, but once you get to know us, you will realize we are a fun bunch
but also gruff on the inside!

I already posted this first guy on the thread for my home bar, but here you go:



It's a Witco table lamp, but its lampy bits have long been gutted (no complaints from me, I like him better as-is). Got him off eBay a few weeks ago. I call him Telly because I think he looks like this guy:


I love, love, love him. I plan to buy some fake fruit to keep in his bowl.

My other Witco:


Nice classic Witco stool, found him on Craigslist.


Another Craigslist purchase. I'm Norwegian, so I had to have some Viking Witco! Hangs over our bed, hopefully anchored well enough to not come crashing down on our heads in an earthquake.

May I also extend a welcome to you, Mids&Mods. Keep hunting & keep poking around TC. I think you'll find it both informative & enjoyable.
Mahalo,
Rick
