SDR

I can confirm the dimensions from my Yamagiwa lamp...

Apparently this company down t ...

Hope this helps somewhat...

None of the drawings of Taliesin I indicate any particular room for Anna Lloyd Wright, so I've never figured out where that information comes from, but it's prevalent.
That's interesting... I can't r ...

I agree that undated plans, partially redrawn by the architect, have limited use. So too, perhaps, do publication-ready drawings of something that was never
built. We have examples of both, in my c ...
