Re: Martin House Complex Birdhouse Garden Sculpture

Having it at half scale surely makes it easier to ship. A full scale model would be impossible to economically ship. Like you said they are at a more appropriate scale for most homeowners. I also think a smaller version would be successful. I wonder if you could put candles inside? Maybe the holes a...

Re: Martin House Complex Birdhouse Garden Sculpture

Thank you for sharing such wonderful photos and close ups. You can really tell from the close up photos that the replica looks very much like the original.
I might have to think about adding one to the collection. I wonder if birds here in Texas would find this type of house to their liking.

Martin House Complex Birdhouse Garden Sculpture

I just run across this the other day on the Martin House website.

http://martinhouse.org/shop_details.cfm ... 1210115279

This really interested me and appears to be an exact replica of the bird houses designed for the Martins.

Has anyone seen this replica in person?

It is still there. I think there is marker with a description on it but Im not positive. It is a armillary sundial, but I'm not sure when it was installed.

Frank Lloyd Wright designed what he called a "Television Mast" for Price Tower, could that be what the large pols is? Basically a fancy cover for the tv antenna?

I agree with Jeff. Looks like something someone made in shop class. Way overpriced either way.

Jeff that's it! I can't think you enough for your help! I would never have figured that out without you. The dimensions seem to match up to. I have an issue of Arizona Highway February 1956 which shows the house and you can clearly see the letters on the entrance gate. If I could figure out how to u...

Its my understanding that they have an H & P just like mine but I have not seen them.

I purchased the only letters that were offered for sale. You can go on to Wrights website and search Price Tower and see the other items offered in the sale.

Yes, thank you very much for the helpful drawings!

They have a set of letters that match the set sold at auction. It’s possible they have other letters from other signage but I’m not sure.

That is an interesting container! Very true it doesn't match the letters in the drawings Jeff posted. It's even possible that those letters where never produced. Price Tower has a pair of matching letters so I wouldn't think there was a letter missing but its possible. Price Tower showed a photo Car...

Thank you for those additional images! That ash tray is really unusual.

The thought so far is that the letters came from Harold Price Jrs parking space at the Tower.

Is the Avery archive available for viewing online?

WOW! Jeff thinks for posting those screen shots, they are wonderful! That conference table is wonderful makes you wonder what happen to it? Have you ever seen a drawing of the commissary? I recently purchased this sign from the Wright auction of Price Tower items. Im working with Price Tower to dete...
