I have spoken to some Lloyd-Jones friends and no one is aware of a great-granddaughter of Frank Lloyd Wright named "Carrie Wright", who supposedly lives in Scottsdale. A check of some of the other FLW Ebay letters finds her name listed. The Teater letter description says, "Signed by a relative." Of what authenticity or value (despite the claim by an 'appraiser' of $2,000) is it at that point?

Exactly. The signatures on all of these pieces are remarkably similar; on a few can be found sketchy or insecure strokes, but I have not otherwise subjected
them to scrutiny. A characteristic of the signatures is a strong diagonal final stroke. It might be possible to locate a known genuine signature which could
have served as a model for this forgery. I am not aware of any published research devoted to analysis of Mr Wright's handwriting and signature(s); one
question would be how and in what ways if any did Wright's signature evolve over time---and what is a typical signature from the various periods of his life.

Does the signature we have on this piece accord with others, genuine ones, from the period claimed for this artifact ?

Today's "Get Fuzzy" strip contains reference to art forgery, after a fashion.





For those not exposed to this comic, Bucky the cat, a scheming and scamming Siamese with permanently-back ears (indicating fear, anger,
or both, according to PetSmart) and a tendency to annoy others, is perpetually in need of funds. Owner Rob is wise to his reality-challenged
and reactionary roommate . . .
