Typisch, Eine Runde Ecke

Schon oft gesehen, an Uhren, und Sideboards, daher mal besser dokumentieren. This American art deco radio was designed by Walter Dorwin Teague (1883 – 1960) for the Sparks-Worthington Company, Jackson, Michigan and introduced in 1936. It was produced until 1940. The radio, known as the “sled” is a marvel of art deco streamline style. Three ebonized wood bands on the left and five chromed bands on the right encase a body of cobalt blue mirror. The radio is 8 ¾” x 17 ½” x 8 3/8” and is in excellent condition.
