Frank Lloyd Wright Collection Globe:
Frank Lloyd Wright's overall concept for his buildings included the integration of the furniture and decorative objects. Replogle globes has developed a line of globes adapted from select Wright drawings and concepts, chosen by Replogle and authorized by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.
This globe is an authentic reproduction from a drawing found in the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation archives. It is an unidentified concept for one of the Prairie Homes that Mr. Wright designed in the early 1900s. The only marking on the drawing is in his handwriting and says, "Something like this." The interpretation and proportions of this globe were calculated based on the scale of other drawings from this time period.
The 16" globe is supported by a full swing metal meridian.
