Frank Lloyd Wright American
William E. Nemmers American
Wright designed this print table as a stock item and used the form in several of his houses. The Littles’ brought it with them from their earlier home in Peoria. They exhibited the family's large collection of Japanese prints on it, most of which they purchased from Wright, who was an avid collector and dealer. One or both leaves of the versatile table can fold down to display large prints and portfolios. When the leaves are folded up, items can be stored between them. The covers of the "Wasmuth Portfolio" (1910) of Wright’s designs, a project partially funded by the Littles, are currently displayed on the table.
