I guess you're only an idiot for asking that much if some bigger idiot doesn't come along and buy it for that much.

Buzzy Out!

WOW!
I would not call anyone an idiot for asking/paying that much(full discloser here,I have 2 of those for sale)
what it comes down to is ,#1-the desire to own it,#2-the will to pay for it &#3 and the ability to pay for it .
with #1&#2 in abundance around here.
GOOD LUCK with your sale.

No comment on the price, but do you have any evidence there are actually forged Witco maps on the market?

You don't even need to be a TC member to laugh at posts like that

I have been trying to bite my lip when I see a post like this now
so all I will insert here is my coined plural use of the word ridiculous

"Ridiculi"

I can see why all are shocked at this price.
If it were not for this bad economy and all it
would surly be worth twice that price.

So what is my Witco fountain worth?

Bruce Yager makes reproduction Witco maps along with some other cool mid century design art. He's a nice guy.
www.etsy.com/shop/Jetsetretrodesign and www.jetsetretrodesign.com

"Everything you see
on this site is his original
design or concept,
carefully produced by
hand, one order at a time"


"All products and design content is copyright 2011-12 Jetsetretro Design"


"The Art of
Bruce Yager"

"after many requests we now offer this beautiful full scale replica of
the original legendary witco world map wall sculpture. often called
the "holy grail" of mid century modern art pieces this piece was
duplicated using the exact scale and dimensions of the original"

??? So Bruce has a copyright on the copy of a Witco???
And his I would guess sell for more than Witcos did back in the day.
That is inovative.
