This one I gotta watch! THAT, my sweets, I would consider to be no less than the holy grail of Witco!


The Tahiti Bar, with stools in original upholstery. Not from the 60s as stated on e-bay, but from the peak of Witco baroque, 1971-72. According to keigs, man at the source, only 15 were ever made. (I have one of them, who else does?)

from the looks of the catalogue, it may have only come with two stools.



Here's the photo in

We should keep a list on TC of who has an example on this witco bar in their Tiki collection...

#1 Big Bro
#2 Tikinomad
#3 ?

I've seen 2 other examples for sale, both on craigslist in N.J./P.A.
One was around $2,000 and the smaller version (without the front masks) for $1,800 and both sold quickly. I was lucky enough to find mine for a $75 bucs in a barn in P.A.
I wonder how much this one will fetch?

In the old economy, this puppy would have brought in 5 grand easy...but no one knows what it'll fetch nowadays, all bets are off.
This one looks like it's in such great condition, it should be close to that, though. I mean look at that chunk of hacked wood, don't you just wanna hug it!?

Nice job, Tim, you got yourself a Tiki mug jungle there. A real headhunter repository.
