Charles and Ray Eames Molded Plywood Radio

$2,400

About the Item

Radio of molded and cut walnut plywood, bakelite, glass and perforated masonite. Designed by Charles and Ray Eames and produced by Evans Products for Teletone, circa 1946. As Richard Wright noted in 2004, "this rare production radio parallels the experimental radio with dimples and holes, reminiscent of the {later] dimple doors of the Eames Storage Units." Literature: Eames Design, Neuhart, p. 77. The case has been lightly refinished; the back panel is missing a section (see photos). Radio untested, but assume not working. The scarcest of the Eames production radios.
