Here's our Witco



and Silverline, we have a couple of those small tiki guys too- I'd be really surprised if they weren't Witco!

I don't have a lot of Witco but I have a few cool pieces. I think I posted the statues a while ago but here they are again. I got these at the county flea market about a year ago. I also have that cool bench that I traded for a case of beer. I found it at a party next to a bonfire! I saved it. I am not 100% positive its witco but prestty sure. These pieces are all in my home bar, "the Kava Lava Lounge." I am working on posting pics of it also. Here they are:



















Hope you like them

Did Witco produce various odd little sundry items? I stumbled across a couple of things today that looked "very interesting."
I would have snapped some pictures but I didn't have my camera on me at the time. One was a stylized little creature about 10 inches tall. It had two protruding pieces of wood for its eyes. The shape looked like that stupid 1980s cartoon character The Incredible Shmoo. The other item was more human in form but lacked the cedar graining that characterizes the Witco items I have seen up to this point. Any suggestions? Oh yea, The height of the humanoid was about 1 foot.

Thanks.
Swamp

Did Witco make a Japanese hedgehog?

I saw a carving in a thrift store yesterday that has that heavy wood grain look.

It looks sort of like this:

I am not sure if these are rare and exquisite pieces of Witco, or steaming and noxious piles of Shitco, but I'll let the tiki world decide. Please let me know soon because the one guy is starting to weird me out!

These lil' guys are Witco's attempts to join the gift item market. The mini Witcos were produced in Canada and offered as "Zoo-ettes" (lil' animals) and as "Fun-Touchables" (in conjunction with gift cards) in the 70s.

I found this at an estate sale years ago in the kitchen and according to the daughter her mother used it to hang dish rags on.

Here's some shots of Tiki Davids latest find. He said I should post these for him- as his new camera has not been tested out yet. Seven foot tall -on an after market concrete base- we assume?? Weighs at least a few hundred pounds, and the thought is that since it was always outside here in NE Ohio, you need the base weight for stability on windy days. It was also painted with "brown house stain", for some unknown reason, so there is some restoration in the offing to get the genuine look back... Rumor has it there are 3-4 more somewhere in town that did not sell at the estate sale this came from, and are still in a mystery back yard somewhere. We hope they weren't used as fire wood by the *unknowing* new owners...

Karbora, it's about time you showed off YOUR Witco here. You're being way too modest.
