Provenance: Property from an Important Chicago Collector
Catalog Note: A similar example is on display at Living Room from the Francis W. Little House (Gallery 745) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The room was created based on the living room of Mr. and Mrs. Francis W. Little, who owned a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Prairie Style lake house in Wayzata, Minnesota. This particular Teco umbrella stand became part of the display based on a recollection of the room by Eleanor Stevenson, the Littles' daughter.
