Hi there really love this pair of KING and QUEEN sculptures does anyone know if these are WITCO? I'm sort of new to this world and would appreciate any help, thanks!

Yes they are, however the colored gravel or paint on the crowns is not original.

Same question, no faces or jungle fabric so could be a knock off. Still like it tho.

While these pieces ARE Witco indeed, they do not really reflect the creative "genius" of the line.

This bed is being advertised as a hawaiian carved california king but it looks more Northwest coastal inspired. I looked in Tiki Modern and I'm thinking it's Witco. I'd love to have it but there is no way I could fit a Cali-King in my bedroom.








What do ya think?
