I do know the difference between the two!

I checked their website and only the froeble gifts remain for sale there. Maybe they were just selling there old stock. This would have been 2004.

Just an aside, here’s a real FLW model of the Robie house from the Musee d'Orsay:

Yeah, Sky, that's a great shot -- I assume you took it ? Is that model four feet long ? Three ? I wonder for whom it was made, and when. . .

Interesting info about the Archiblocks in their various iterations. . .I wonder if other buildings were singled out for this treatment ? The Robie house would be a natural. . .

About four feet is a fair guess, SDR. You can make out my image in the glass – it’s either me or an Ewok from Star Wars. The light halo must have been something behind me.

It’s not a good photo, but here’s the label from the case:

I’ll PM a link for you to some others in the same batch – several architectural, buts mostly impressionist paintings, and of course the museum building itself is a treat.

A small set of Frank Lloyd Wright Archiblocks is up for bid on eBay. The small set has fewer pieces and less variety of forms than the large set talked about last year. Nonetheless, it's very collectable.

The auction ends November 4th and details can be found .

Another set of Frank Lloyd Wright Archiblocks is up for bid on eBay. The medium-size set has fewer pieces and less variety of forms than the large set talked about last year, but more than the set I posted above. A very collectable set.

The auction ends on December 4th and details can be found .

Modern Doll House Plan

Postby johnnyapollo » Wed Jul 23, 2008 6:18 am

I thought someone might like my post about a Doll House plan I found in an old Deltagram magazine from 1946:

FLW Archiblocks for sale

Postby dilettante » Mon Dec 01, 2008 5:24 pm

eBay has yet another set for Archiblocks for sale - this one an apparently unused set of the Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie House variety. Made by Interactive Arts! Not the LARGE FLW set, but seem to be very nice. The fewer I see of these, the nicer they get. A great gift for the wannabe architect.

See the auction on eBay .

Thanks, dilettante. I'm tempted -- though I kind of have lots of toys already, and the retiree's budget requires some discretion. But an unopened set. . .!

I'm a little confused about the box top being used for a house roof, and the seller's photos don't resolve the question. Do you think the top is hip-shaped ?
