These Reg Splints are the only known examples to have been produced by Alvar and Aaino Aalto's company, Artek-Pascoe. Prior to the discovery of these splints, the only manufacturer associated with splint production was California-based Evans Products Company, producing them for the American war effort from 1943-1945.
Pre-Production CTM, Evans Products, 1946, This example features a base comprised of two bent steel rods joined with a single weld. The top is raised above the base on three rubber shock mounts with metal washers. After several pre-production design changes, the three-leg CTM was ultimately replaced by the more common four-leg form.
