Hey,
Today I was at an antique mall and saw something that was a small (foot tall or so) wooden Venus De Milo statue done in the style of Witco. However, it was done with somewhat more detail than most Witco I have seen.

Does anyone know for sure whether or not Witco ever produced a Venus?

I couldn't figure a better place to post this Witco question. Today I saw a Giant "Witco" style cat. It was of all things a Fireplace tool holder anyone? Can't believe it's really Witco but it even had inlaid eyes?

Help would be appreciated!

DEFINITELY Witco. If there is a second favorite thing next to Tikis designed by Bill Westenhaver, it is the unique variety of modernistic cats in all shapes and forms.

Thanks Big Bro... I'm sure it's not going to fly out of the store where it is... Perhaps if it's still there I will spring the 18.00 plus tax for it or at least take a picture...
