These "Textile Block" bookends emulate the cast concrete construction blocks used by Frank Lloyd Wright. C. 1980 Dimensions: 9"h x 3.25"w x 4"d
Pair of Frank Lloyd Wright inspired bookends. They are a replication of a concrete block FLW used in the construction of his textile-block homes. The "textile-block system" was a new method of building in which concrete was cast into patterned molds and reinforced with steel. This system was used in the Hollyhock and Charles Ennis House. These particular bookends are heavy plaster with felt on the bottom.
