Dessert Plate (Austria), 1913–14

This is a Dessert Plate. It was manufactured by J. & L. Lobmeyr GmbH.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It has been able to spend time at the museum on loan from J. & L. Lobmeyr GmbH.

It is dated 1913–14 and we acquired it in 2009. Its medium is mouth-blown colorless glass, black ink feather-pen drawing. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

The R-72, a novelty portable radio also known as the Toot-a-Loop, is a wonderful example of Pop Art-inspired design. This battery-powered transistor radio exposes its control panel when unhinged, and could be worn as a bracelet when closed. A highly decorative and fun piece of wearable product design, the R-72 was marketed to a younger consumer base. The brightly colored radio housing, which came in at least four colors, was crafted out of plastic, a material that by the 1970s was used widely for electronic devices.

It is credited Museum purchase through gift of Dale and Doug Anderson, Anonymous Donor, Arthur Liu, and Prairie Pictures, Inc. and from General Acquisitions Endowment Fund.

Its dimensions are

H x diam.: 1.8 x 20.9 cm (11/16 x 8 1/4 in.)
