Just can’t follow the artistry, but know “different” when I see it !

Many of the 1935 Zenith models (800, 900 series) have asymmetrical speaker grills.

That one is the model 861.

Others were models 809, 811/812, 829, 850, 860, 871, 950, and 960.

It was the only model year Zenith did this. Other than horizontal table models and chairsides, all Zenith tombstones and consoles were symmetrical.

There was a time I avidly searched for one of those artfully styled grilled Zenith consoles, being a fan of art-deco. They are far from common and don't come up for sale often, although they don't seem to have a particularly high desirable.
