This light fixture was at an antique/collectibles warehouse and it was claimed to be by Frank Lloyd Wright. I'm wondering if any of you are familiar with this fixture as being from a Wright building and if so which building.

Thanks in advance.

Nope. I'd want to inspect it for manufacturing technique, and any labelling: while it could be a production piece, what I can see of it suggests that it might be one of a limited number of fixtures designed, perhaps by an architect, for installation in a particular building.

As to Wright, the geometries of the piece are too "random" to be those of the master of the 30-45-60-degree angle . . . as I see it.

Thanks SDR! The artist that used this fixture as part of a piece could find no markings indicating that it was by Mr Wright. She researched and could not find any similar photos of fixtures. I suggested that folks on this site might be able to shed some light (excuse the pun) on whether it is a Frank Lloyd Wright design.
