At One World Trade Center: An Octagon Upon An Octagon Upon An Octagon is called, Freedom Tower ...
In Frank Lloyd Wright's Home Office, Oak Park, Illinois the design is called, a ceiling (above his drafting table). In an 1898 3 Position, 21 Jewel Railroad Watch, Elgin called it Delphic Engraving and offered it as an option to those who wanted and could afford something a little nicer, a little different a little more unique in a basic pocket watch. Last time I had mine cleaned and appraised, it was valued at $225.00 which I still think far too low. Me? I paid $10.00 for it because it didn't work when it was brought into my pawnshop and I didn't know if it'd be confiscated as stolen property when the police/second hand dealer report California law requires reached our local law enforcement agencies that night and they ran a background check on it's description and serial numbers through our National Crime Institute Computer System (NCIC) to make sure it wasn't stolen; something required of all California based second hand dealers/online auctions that only pawnbrokers seem to be forced to comply with. But that's an ancient/different/outstanding issue yet waiting to be addressed, at another time? The question at present? Could this unique design at ground ground zero New York, as reappears in Frank Lloyd Wright's office ceiling and in my 1898 pocket watch, raise the collector value of all things based on the same unique design? If so, is Frank Lloyd Wrights home for sale and if so at what price? (Personally, I'd rather own the home he designed called Falling Waters so that I could kick the tourists out and move in but, his home office in Oak Park matches my watch and its closer to family than where I am now. Hey, this crap Romney's "Church" has been pulling on me and my family for the last 114 years (since they first knew what my name was going to be) is going to be over pretty soon and I have to think about where I'll live if anyone within the United States finds a way to keep me from moving to St. Petersburg, Estonia, Mousehole, UK or some undisclosed cottage in the heart of the Black Forest not known or accessible to "people." .Just a thought.
