By Replogle. In
1928, Frank Lloyd Wright began working with a former apprentice on a
luxurious resort commissioned by Alexander J. Chandler: the San Marcos
of the Desert. Unfortunately, this magnificent hotel was never
constructed due to the 1929 stock market crash, though luckily the
surviving building designs and the interior renderings contain a variety
of interesting furniture and decorative features. The major public
spaces of the resort were the main dining room and lounge in the center
of the building. The dining room was to have a richly faceted
ceiling of copper and glass, recalling the architect's famed Imperial
Hotel. This adapted globe stand showcases the 60 degree angled
legs and the circular top of a small accent table designed for this
special Dining Pavilion.
THIS GLOBE IS UPDATABLE!!!
