HISTORY. The history of Tesla radios is an exciting journey through twentieth-century engineering and design, a fascinating chapter in the history of radio technology. Founded in 1921 as ELEKTRA in Czechoslovakia, and renamed TESLA in 1946, the company became an emblem of innovation and technological progress. The association with the name of Nikola Tesla, the visionary Serbian engineer, gives these radios a unique charm, combining the prestige of a pioneer of electromagnetism with the art of radio production. Tesla, known for his fundamental contribution to alternating current and for his eccentric personality, thus becomes a symbol of a legacy that transcends science to enter the realm of culture and the collective imagination. Tesla radios, with their Art Deco style and reliability, gain a prominent place not only in homes, but also in museums around the world, testifying to the historical and cultural importance of these devices. The Talisman 308U radio, in particular, becomes a design icon, loved for its aesthetics and its ability to connect people through radio waves. This story is not just that of a company or a product, but that of a symbol that has given voice to entire generations and which continues to be celebrated in international museums as representative of an era of extraordinary innovations and cultural changes. Tesla radios represent a bridge between the past and the present, combining technology, art and history into one fascinating tale.
