Sparton Model 1186 "Nocturne"
Sold for $85,000 in Dec 2003
1936 mirrored cobalt glass, satin chrome steel, wood 43.25"w x 14"d x 46"h Teague's Nocturne was the most daring of the four radios he designed for the Sparton Corporation. Standing nearly four feet high, the radio was meant to be the focal point of a hotel lobby or other public space. The high price of the radio, $350 in 1936, combined with the economic depression of time resulted in very few models being sold.
