In 1912, Avery Coonley commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design the Avery Coonley Playhouse in Riverside, Illinois as a place for his wife to educate neighborhood children in the Froebel kindergarten method. Wright themed his extensive use of art glass in the Playhouse to appeal to the children.

  • The art glass window designs, composed of bold geometry - circles and squares - in primary colors, appear to be influenced by Wright's affection for a parade. This decorative tile is an adaptation of one of the school's many art glass windows.

  • Actual tile size: 3 13/16" x 7-13/16"
