I am trying to find out if these 2 pieces are Witco. If not what are they? Any ideas.

Yes.

Maybe.

Probably Witco.

Any chance you could get a picture of the back side? Or tell us if there are any identifying marks on the back, on the hanger bit.... A lot of the Witco stuff was 'mass produced' so very little of their stuff is signed, but there are still sometimes stock numbers or other marks that could help nail it down to a certainty.


And Aloha! by the way. Welcome to Tiki Central.

It's non-tiki Witco. King and Queen, chess motif 70s stuff..

You probably won't unload it here if you're trying to sell it. Hard to put a number on it, but I'd say quite a bit lower than tiki Witco, but higher than your average chess piece wall hanging...

Thanks for the reply. Wasn't trying to move it, just making sure was a good deal.

WTF! yes, those are the same exact Photos posted here & priced at $299?

Rswens/shopstoragewarriors you could at least be honest about asking for help here
someone would have advised you still, but now you have spent all of our goodwill
Bloody mercenary profiteers, well I say, good day sir!!! I said good day!

Personally i think it's about time that any member who asks "Is this Witco" and has less than X amount of posts should either be completely ignored or the moderators should remove the post. It's unbelievable how many times this happens, people claiming to only want to know the value of the piece 'out of interest' and then trying to sell them at a huge mark-up.

You guys are probably right. I remember when I first started collecting Witco, I had a million questions, and this board was such a great resource. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. But it seems like a lot do just end up being flippers...

Oh well good luck getting 300 bones for those lame pieces anyway..

Swizzle, I agree 100%, and I'm sure every other member feels the same way. The only modification I would make is if the question is: "Is this fill-in-the-blank, and how much is it worth?" We all can do this, no moderator intervention needed to ignore a post. We all just need to do it...I'm in!

So if I go back to being blunt with these types of profiteers, you guys will not jump all over me?

Yes I have been nice & helpful to folks around here for awhile, yet I usually can tell from these types of posts
what their true intentions are.

Of course the most obvious clue is when they ask the objects value within a few questions
Second if they have not taken the time to use the "introduction thread" it is possible they don't plan on
sticking around, after they get what they came here for.

I think it can be a fine line, ATP. Because imho we also don't want to chase away everyone who potentially could bring cool & interesting finds to the site.
..plus we would get first crack at it
