Frank Lloyd Wright was commissioned by Frank Thomas in 1901 to build his first Prairie style house in Oak Park, Illinois. It contains some of his most intricate art glass designs. The pattern of this decorative tile is adapted from Wright’s design for the art glass panels and doors in the small, jewel-like entry vestibule of the house. This space is made up of seven doors which form three of the vestibule’s four walls. Art glass skylight panels provide yet more daylight from overhead.
Actual tile size: 3-13/16 x 7-13/16
Our tile frames are made by Dard Hunter Studios, founded by early Roycrofter Dard Hunter and run by his grandson, Dard Hunter III.
The 3-inch oak Legacy beveled frame is available in Craftsman Oak finish only and is 11-1/2" square.
The 2-inch Oak Park flat frame is also made of oak and comes in Craftsman Oak or Ebony finish. Its finished size is 9-1/2" square. (The Oak Park is the only frame style approved by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation for the tile in our Frank Lloyd Wright Collection (R).)
Note: Legacy frames are available with dividers for framing multiple pieces. Oak Park frames are available with multiple openings by special order.
