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. For a similar example, see Wright, 06 June 2004, lot 563. In untouched original condition, with wear throughout consistent with age and use. Radio untested, but assume not working.
