EXTREMELY RARE ROBIN DAY DESIGN PYE 444 TRANSISTOR RADIO 50s modern contemporary Search
Description PYE TRANSISTOR 444 AN EXTREMELY RARE TRANSISTOR RADIO & ALSO A DESIRABLE PIECE OF MODERN PRODUCT/INDUSTRIAL DESIGN. DESIGNED FOR PYE BY ROBIN DAY c 1958. THIS IS FINE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 444.

APPROXIMATE YEAR OF MANUFACTURE : 1958 - early 1960s.

THIS RADIO IS BEING SOLD AS A MODERN DESIGN OBJECT, NOT A WORKING MODEL. however it does power up when a battery is connected, but as yet no reception (aerial missing).

A PYE 444 TRANSISTOR WAS ON DISPLAY AT PALLENT HOUSE'S ROBIN & LUCIENNE DAY EXHIBITION (march-June 2011) & APPROXIMATELY 10 YEARS PRIOR AT THE BARBACAIN'S DAY EXHIBITION. ALSO ITS MENTIONED IN LESLEY JACKSON'S "ROBIN & LUCIENNE DAY; PIONEERS OF CONTEMPORARY DESIGN".

GENERAL CONDITION OF THE RADIO.

THE DIAL FACE IS CLEAN, UNDAMAGED, WITH NO NOTICEABLE DEEP MARKS.

THE TUNING DIAL MOVES FREELY, AS DOES THE VOLUME DIAL & THE BAND SELECTOR BUTTONS. ALL IN GOOD CONDITION.

THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT IS CLEAN, WITH NO SIGN OF LEAKAGE.

THERE ARE SOME SHALLOW DEPRESSIONS IN THE SPEAKER GRILL, BUT NOTHING TOO SERIOUS. I HAVE PROVIDED SOME DECENT SIZE IMAGES, IF YOU CLICK ON THEM THEY SHOULD ENLARGE TO FULL SCREEN SIZE.

THE LEATHER HANDLE IS PRESENT, INTACT AND IN VERY GOOD CONDITION, (these can often be broken, in some cases missing).

THE REAR VINYL COVERED HARDBOARD PANEL IS ALSO IN VERY GOOD CONDITION, NO RIPS OR TEARS IN THE VINYL OR DAMAGE TO THE HARDBOARD.

HOWEVER THE RADIO IS MISSING ITS AERIAL AND THE BACK PANEL ALTHOUGH VERY SECURE, HAS ONLY ONE SCREW HOLDING IT RATHER THAN TWO. (both of these can be sourced from or similar sites if needed).

THE RADIO RETAINS ALL OF ITS ORIGINAL RUBBER FEET, (these are prone to age related deterioration and are usually removed if one or more becomes damaged of missing).

TO SUM UP, THIS IS A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE OF THE MODEL, AN EXTREMELY RARE FIND. THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE OF THIS MODEL I HAVE MANAGED TO ACQUIRE IN ALL MY TIME DEALING IN COLLECTIBLE RADIOS. THEY ARE RARELY AVAILABLE FOR SALE IN GOOD CONDITION.
