Ekco AD75 receiver, designed by Wells Coates for E K Cole Limited, Leigh-on-Sea, England, 1946.

The ‘deco’ look of the 1930s was in part down to new, more efficient production techniques, such as Bakelite moulding.

The EKCO company was a British electronics company from 1924 to 1960 and was named after its founder Eric Kirkham Cole. They first made radio receivers and later expanded into television receivers and other electronic goods. In 1960, EKCO merged with Pye to form a new company, British Electronic Industries Ltd.
