I think our OP meant to type "spot on reproduction" as opposed to stop on reproduction.

Well, that would make sense. Better a Britishism that I've heard, than a new one ! But he wrote it twice . . . ?

I noticed that, too.

As Copeland is authorised to reproduce this furniture, I wonder what criteria was set by the foundation in relation to the accuracy of construction and whether redesign details are permitted?

I own Wright furniture pieces by both Design Within Reach which Copeland manufactured and a couple of Copeland pieces. Copeland takes some liberties with both design and dimensions on their own FLW pieces. The Design Within Reach FLW pieces have a higher level of fidelity to the originals and better detailing than the Copeland pieces. Unfortunately the DWR pieces are now discontinued. Last week I inquired with Copeland to see if they would be interested in making the DWR pieces if I had permission from DWR and the FLW Foundation. They declined. Eventually I will retain Stafford Norris to build reproductions of FLW Furniture.
