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...

I totally agree! I would think that the model in the picture was made by an individually and is a one off. It doesn't look like the original model made by Taliesin. The original model is at the Museum of Modern Art now and Price Tower has a model made by an architectural firm that has an office in t...

Thank you for those photos! It looks like there is a banner on the parking structure which seems to suggest it was in the 1980's when the building was for sale? The apartment is missing its chairs and its shelfs which further make me think the photos date to the 1980's.

Matt,
Im not sure but I don't believe so.
When I went and 2017 the gift shop had very few Price Tower related items.

I have a small model about 5" tall of Price Tower that I purchased on eBay. They where a limited edition done several years ago.
