Isn't that the hat Frank wore in "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom"?

Interesting. Not one photo of the hat from the side, as it would normally be seen---so impossible to assess the form and appearance ?

"Rare Glass Bookends Gustav Klimt, Bauhaus [?] etc..."

Interesting. Not FLW, though.

Here's the response I got from the seller, after questioning why he/she believed the bookends were Wright or Bauhaus, and requesting that Wright's name not be used spuriously:

"had you seen similar bookends at some time? Can you tell me why they can't be from the Bauhaus school? Why can't they come from wright school? Do
you know any bookends like these? Where are they for me to see them? Also the Salvator Mundi of Leonardo da Vinci was originally sold at $ 10.00O by
high-reputation sellers and was finally sold at $ 450 million everyone was wrong. Many connoisseurs navigate here, I don't think you are the only one, you
have an opinion but others also have it, thanks anyway."

When people get all het up about being taken to task, it invariably means a nerve has been struck, and they have been found out!
This isn't the first such counterattack on this site.

Right---although I did not identify myself as associated with Wright Chat . . .

Those who engage in specious reasoning usually are not aware of the flaws in their arguments ?
