found these in the wild yesterday for an amazing price. someone tried to sell them to an african art place in an antique mall sort of place. they weren't interested so they sold them to the little antique shop across the hall. unbelievably the shop had them for 6 months and no one bought them...







(sorry the pics are sideways, not sure why!)

This is my first post (and not really Tiki...although I love Tiki and have been a lurker for years) and is Witco related. Does anyone know anything about these, or can anybody identify them? They surely HAVE to be Witco, right? - My latest find...

Yes, Witco. Asian. Cool backgrounds. Photo too dark. If I come across them in any catalogs I will post more.

A friend of a friend is a swap meet flipper, looking for mostly mid century furniture. I always tell him to keep an eye out for Witco or tiki stuff. He called me yesterday, telling me he found what he thought was a Witco piece. He described it as a "tiki mask with mosaic tiles behind it", then told me he couldn't take any photos of it (vendor's rules). Since I hadn't seen it in person, I wasn't sure of the value- or what the actual piece was- or even if it had the Witco stamp/ marking. The vendor was asking $200. I googled what he described to me over the phone without any luck, then (light bulb), I went and opened up my copy of Tiki Modern.

This was as close to what I thought it could be, so I texted him the photo (bonus of working from a home office)



I sent him the photo, he sent me this back a while later.



It was a match. Once he heard it was in Tiki Modern, he bought it from the vendor, then sold it right after to someone who saw him walking away with it. Who knew Witco was so hot in San Diego?

Sven, thanks for providing not only great reading material, but a great resource guide!
