Frank Lloyd Wright American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 745

Wright designed these copper vases that he called "weed holders" and displayed them in his own home in Oak Park, Illinois, as well as in several other of his residential commissions. While this pair is not the set the Littles owned, their daughter Eleanor Stevenson, in a letter to the Museum dated January 1974, described some of the room’s original furnishings and sketched a vase like these, characterizing it as "excessively tall." She wrote that the family had a pair of such vases placed "in the recesses of the fireplace."
