SDR,

Joel bought some things from Scott Elliott's store, Kelmscott Gallery, in Chicago. It handles a lot of FLW-related stuff. There might be a hint about that curious item you covet.

The raised cross bar may relate to the lower end of the capital P loop. If the H had been designed as usual, with the cross bar at the lower end, that would have weighted the whole composition.

Just found that the H P belong to the Price house in Paradise Valley.

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 upload a photo I would.

Pertaining to Price Tower memorabilia, I found this on eBay.

Real or phony?

The seller seems to have quite a bit of other Wright related items for sale.

Probably sat on someone’s desk in the Price tower but not by Wright.

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

Great video of the Dessert House of Harold Price Sr.

Thanks for that, Chen. It's a great look at the house. We first saw the video last winter:

http://wrightchat.savewright.org/viewtopic.php?t=11502

It prompted a close look at certain features of the work, and some useful discussion. The gate with initials seems not to have been much photographed, so the Arizona Highways piece is of particular interest.
