Drawing, Design for Television Cabinet
This is a Drawing. It was from the office of Henry Dreyfuss and manufactured by RCA Manufacturing Company, Incorporated. We acquired it in 1993. Its medium is pastel on tracing paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
This is one of a group of drawings proposed for acquisition that document work by the Dreyfuss firm during the postwar years, for clients including Royal Typewriter (1944–45), New York Central Railroad (mid-1940s), RCA (1946–55), National Supply Co. (1949–58), and Cities Service (1951–62).
A number of the finished drawings correspond to prototypes or other documentation held in Cooper-Hewitt’s Dreyfuss archives, including those for RCA radio/phonograph and television consoles, and two beautiful drawings for Bell Telephone Laboratories of public phone booths.
