Here’s a wonderful vintage oddity, a woddity. The witty “egghead” ceramics designed by LaGardo Tackett and marketed by Playboy and Esquire magazines as bedside storage for condoms back in the 60s.
A witty woddity: An egg. To hold condoms....GET IT?
They were made and marketed (primarily through Playboy Magazine) as condom holders.
These porcelain heads are hollow with a cork underneath which kept the contents, um, under-wraps.
La Gardo Tackett operated a studio in Southern California and produced exceptional architectural pottery pieces during the 1950’s. His work received rave reviews from designers and architects at the Brussels World Fair in 1958.
Sought after by collectors today because of their simplistic, sculptural design and tongue-in-cheek humor these “Eggheads” are getting harder and harder to find. For obvious reasons they were never in great supply.

Be aware when purchasing Vintage items that all will arrive in used condition, some may show wear or minor age. Other items we sell may even be more desirable because of their distressed state!

We may find them charming and distinctive where others may have a different discription for the item. It is all in the eye.
