(Panasonic, c. 1970s) A vintage Panasonic R-72 "Toot-a-Loop" AM transistor radio. An icon of Pop Art inflected industrial design, the Toot-a-Loop is meant to be worn around the wrist or arm. The original instruction manual is included. All items are assembled in the original pyramidal cardboard clamshell case with graphic paper sleeve. Measuring 7.75"x7.5" and 4" deep, the box is in very good condition with edge and corner wear, some stress lines to the sides, and soiling to the reverse with some surface peeling at upper left, and a tear to the bottom right face. The radio is 6" in diameter. It exhibits some minor soiling and handling wear. Hang Ten-style footprint decals have been applied to the thickest part of the ring, and the speaker retrains some letter decals.
