RCA Loudspeaker 103 Tapestry Octagonal loudspeaker.
The RCA-103 loudspeaker consists essentially of a molded frame with a tapestry grille, a baffle board, cone support, cone, motor mechanism and filter unit. A fiber canopy is provided to cover the entire rear mechanism and a silk cover is tied over this canopy to add to its artistic finish and still provide easy access to the mechanism when necessary. The tapestry depicts flowers in a vase.
This is a beautiful example and was "State of the Art" when new
