Original Rare Important Cat House By The Office Of Frank Lloyd Wright For Sale

Original Rare Important Cat House By The Office Of Frank Lloyd Wright

Offered is an original, rare and important cat house [Residence For Felis Catus''] designed by The Office of Frank Lloyd Wright and a framed original presentation rendering.This structure is made from plywood and retains it's orignal cherokee red surface.There arebumps/rubs to some edges and paint losses [primarily along joints on the structure's top]-- see photos below. This is a two piece house with the 47 3/4" wide top seperating from the base unit.Mr. Wright designed a residence for Gerald Tonkens, Cincinnati, Ohio, C.1954. As stated in the December 12,1987 Christie's catalogue [p.112] where this piecewas first placed by the orignal ownerfor sale to the public: "According to the owner, at the completion of the commission his [i.e. Mr. Tonken's] daughter asked that Mr. Wright design a house for her cat. Mr. Olson who was the site supervisor for the commission made the drawing subsequent to Mr. Wright's description to him on the telephone of how he envisioned the feline's house. Mr. Olson's drawing from that conversation is offered as lot 139." [see below] Thomas Monaghan, CEOand owner at the time of Dominos Pizza, purchased this cat house at the Christie's sale. He paid $10,450 [lot 138] for the cat house and $2200 [lot 139] for the presentation rendering [see below]. Through an agent, I purchased this cat house and rendering from The Dominos Pizza Frank Lloyd Wright Collection in 1993 and have owned it for the last 20 years. Everything is original except the flag pole, which is a faithful reproduction. Please offer with confidence; I have bought, sold and brokered original F.L Wright and Louis H. Sullivan materials for 25 years. All inquires invited. Because of the size of this cat house, a box or crate will have to be constructed. The total cost of handling and shipping will be several hundreddollars for domestic {USA} deliveryand could be well over $1000 for international shipments-- please bear this in mind! This is a reserve sale, but the reserve is modest in contrast to what Mr. Monaghan paid. {I will not reveal the reserve!}
