Wright items


They certainly have a high impression of the value of their items ...

I would argue that every piece here is massively undervalued when placed within the context of the art market as a whole.

You’re correct, John.

By comparison, the Wright items are a steal: https://www.wright20.com/search/judd

Barbara Elsner would probably be interested in the Bogk desk. At $4000 to $6000, it sounds like a good investment.

Using the search tool, I found some nice LH Sullivan items in there too!

Is that really from Bogk? I have not been in the interior of the house but it does not appear to have the same detailing as published photos of the house show.

Duncan, I am taking Leslie Hindman Auctioneers at their word about the Bogk desk. The little detailing there is in Bogk woodwork consists of rows of small squares on table top edges and such. I cannot make out any detailing on the image of the posted desk. But the overall feel of the desk seems similar to the dining set. Most of the furniture in the house, other than the original dining set, is Heritage Henredon, reupholstered in Olga hues.

Here are some useful photos; I didn't pause long enough to track down any dating to these images . . .

In this video we can see a desk at the 0:12 mark, and then closer at the 1:00 mark.
It doesn't quite match the one offered in the auction since it has drawers and a bit more articulation.

Hm. There's a desk in the picture labeled "Living Room" on the page I linked; it could be the same piece as you note. And the table or desk at 0:12 as well, if that's an asymmetrical object, one end different from the other ?

None of this original Bogk furniture is as simple and stark as the dining table offered at Leslie Hindman. I'm wondering if it could be Wright, and old. The expansion mechanism revealed with the table open is awfully fresh looking . . .

I've found that if you do a Google search for "WrightChat" and whatever search terms you would use in a search here, the old threads will be in the search results. Not as good as fixing the forums, but better than nada ...

Thanks, Stan -- having only recently learned of that workaround, I keep forgetting to use it . . .

The Bogk Table is not by Wright. It's TAA from a 1960s remodel (Taliesin Apprentice John Ottenheimer supervised this remodel and you can actually see this table design in situ in the HABS photo from the 60s.)



Stuart got the table from when the Elsner's put the table in a FLWBC silent auction. I actually informed Stuart Grannen back in 2017 when he had the table subsequently listed on 1st Dibs that it was not period Wright.

Wright's original design for the table is very different, which is why the Elsner's (the home's owners during this period and presently) had the TAA version ultimately replaced.



Buyer Beware.
