The Hang-It-All: A Gift from Ray Eames to Elaine K. Sewell Jones

The Hang-It-All, a well-known, iconic piece from Charles and Ray Eames, is a common piece put into reproduction due to its functionality and playful design. We, however, are selling an original Hang-It-All in the upcoming Spring 2010 LAMA Auction. This particular Hang-It-All is not just an ordinary original, this model was a gift from Ray Eames herself to Elaine K. Sewell Jones, the widow of A. Quincy Jones. In addition this example is in near pristine original condition, which is rare to find.  Stay tuned for our Spring 2010 Auction to see this piece in our catalog and eventually go on the auction block.
