Nuetra Lovell House Model

Post by Deke »

I am doing some market research to see if models of famous modernist buildings would find an audience. I've made a prototype of Nuetra's Lovell House. The base is 8" diameter, the house and hillside about 7" tall (I'd be happy to post a photo if someone can tell me how). Any thoughts on the audience for a product like this, or what price you'd expect to pay?

That line, with your photo's link in place, will post the photo. (You'll see the "img" button above the posting box on the "Post a reply" page -- be sure the second [img] has a slash.) You need a web-hosted image service; I use the Yahoo Small Business web hosting utility. Photobucket and similar sites are alternatives.



Sounds like a small-scale model -- how would it be packeged ? Materials ? Monochrome or full color ?



Something tells me you'll need a clear display box (or a "bell") ? Of course, buildings come in all shapes. . .

Thanks for the photo information. I'll work to get that working.



The model is not huge, but kept small to sit on a bookshelf. It's cast from urethane and painted. I'm currently working on a Price Tower model of the same scale, the base is 8" square, the tower 9" tall not counting the antenna.

For price information, my advice would be to look at the sales sites, among them:



http://wrightcatalog.stores.yahoo.net/ (FLlW Preservation Trust)

http://www.taliesinbookstore.com/

http://www.savewright.org/ (FLlW Conservancy - click on BOOKSTORE)



This will give you an idea of what people will pay for Wright-related items.

Here's a photo (I hope this works) of the Lovell model prototype. It's about 8" diameter and 7" tall. This is the painted version, but it could be cast with a metallic finish.

Well this doesnt' seem to be working in terms of putting the photo up. I'll keep working on it.

Hmm...this doesn't seem to be working. Do you have to past the URl?
