Doesn't look anything like Witco.

It's not a great picture, but I can see how it could be thought to be Witco. It has that rough chainsaw/routered walnut-stained cedar look.

It appears to be a Spanish/Castilian influenced piece
it was a very popular look in the 70s, Not Witco at all
but a similar process to produce the aesthetic.

So...These sure look like Witco to me. At first I thought tiki masks, but now I'm thinking it could be the Drama Masks of Comedy and Tragedy.

Anyone know for sure? Is this Witco?

Definitely the Drama mask set, but unsure if they are Witco
I need to find an old Witco catalog.

Hey Sven or Bosko! what do you think?

The curves at the top don’t seem to fit the Witco style although the grain certainly looks like Witco (to my untrained eye) but what do I Know. Let’s see others have to say.

Agreed. The grain is totally reminiscent of Witco. The curve at the top reminds me of the Witco cats. It's too bad there's nothing marked on the back.

Is there a "I know it's not Witco, but this is close and I want to know who made it" thread?

If not, who made this?







Buzzy Out!

Could not find a "Scheffel" in here, though:
