Description

Beauty comes in ALL shapes and sizes… and this little gem is a perfect example of that! This is an absolutely FABULOUS vintage Spanish Colonial Revival small high back chair in the style of WITCO. Its petite sculptured frame is comprised of dark stained wood and its seat and back are upholstered in a gorgeous gold velvet fabric trimmed with steel nail head details. The seat is shaped kind of like a shield and the base of the chair is wider in the front and narrower in the back. It has wonderful straight turned spindle front legs featuring a cross stretcher and the back spindle legs extend up and create the tall back… it is STUNNING! It would be wonderful in your entry for a quick and fashionable place to take off your shoes or as an accent chair in the living or family room. It would also be fun décor in a child’s room hosting a doll or big teddy bear! Possibilities are as endless as your imagination!

In 1958, a small importing company called Western International Trading Co. was founded in Washington State. Founders of Western International Trading Co (or Witco, as it’s more commonly known today) William Westenhaver, Robert Cookson and William’s cousin Robert Post Jr. started by importing art and mosaics from South and Central America, as well as paintings and sculptural art from lesser-known American artists.  But soon, William Westenhaver suggested they make their own tropical-inspired wood carvings. By the end of 1958, after a furniture and decor show in Los Angeles, the carved wood decor was a hit across the country. Everyone from everyday Americans to celebrities like Elvis Presley filled their homes with Tropical furnishings and home goods. Witco reached the height of its popularity in the late 60s before shuttering a decade later. In 1977 Witco closed its doors for the last time; but, not without leaving a unique and indelible mark on mid-20th century design.

We absolutely LOVE this petite sculptured high back chair and surely you do too! Well, what are you waiting for? Make it yours!!
