Frank Lloyd Wright Inspired Sterling Business Card Case

Business card case with a design adapted from the center panel of the window triptych from the Avery Coonley Playhouse.

The design of the Frank Lloyd Wright Coonley Playhouse card case is adapted from the center panel of the window triptych from the Avery Coonley Playhouse, Riverside, Illinois, 1912. Each shape on the card case symbolizes one of the five colors from the original window. Wright's design is believed to have been inspired by a parade with colorful balloons, flags and confetti. The design is one of Wright's most important decorative achievements.

This case is marked STERLING 1993 AIC* and was bought at the Art Institute of Chicago in the 1990s.

*Stockman House is a primary example of Wright's Prairie School style. The Robert E. McCoy Architectural Interpretive Center (AIC) is the starting place for the Stockman House tours and provides access and information about Mason City's unique architectural history.

Case weight: 66.1 grams or 2.12 troy ounces .927 sterling silver
