Where does this light come from at Coonley? Looks like Robie to me.

The Avery Coonley drawing is not of the House, but the original design for the Playhouse

Oh, geez---where to start ?

The "provenance" for those Wisconsin windows has been cleaned up a bit from the last posting---meaning, made even more vague and unconvincing. Last time they were somehow given to the family by Mr Wright (for no apparent reason) and were attached to a piece of furniture in the donees' home. Does anyone recognize them as Wright ?

I think there's one residence besides Robie where this "flying saucer" cast sconce with hemispherical milk-glass globe is found. No, Coonley it isn't . . .

As for the Booth rendering---it clearly belongs to the one published in Taschen I, p 380; the Heritage Auctions version makes the other look like a copy . . .

There is a really cool drawing of the Randall Fawcett House in this collection.
It shows the grid of the plan in red within a larger grid of four equilateral triangles in black.
Not sure I've ever seen something similar to this: the plan grid within a larger conceptual grid.
