Hohner Echo Elite


Hohner commissioned John Vassos to redo the look of their harmonica for the 1933 Chicago World Fair. The result was this sleek art deco-styled Echo Elite. Production was stopped when Hohner geared up for munitions during WW2. The design was popular enough that production was restarted after the war.

From the German magazine Hobby.

My parents had some of those chairs back in the 50's. They called them the "butterfly chairs".
