Vintage 1933 Raymond Loewy New World Colonial Globe Radio Art Deco Bakelite Map For Sale
Vintage 1933 Raymond Loewy NEW WORLD COLONIAL GLOBE RADIO Art Deco Ivory BAKELITE Map Radio Own a Piece of Radio History !!! This sale is for a scarce circa 1933 bakelite radio designed by the world famous industrial designer Raymond Loewy. This machine age radio is housed in two hemispheres of ivory bakelite, and the bakelite base. It has the original chrome knobs and equator ring. The radio has the original cord and antenna wire. When plugged in, it does not work.
The gold detail of the map is in good shape. The bakelite upper hemisphere is whole and in good shape, there is a paint drip which we think can be removed, but we will leave that up to the new owner. The bakelite lower hemisphere is not in good shape, it has several cracks and some of the pieces are missing. Someone used cellophane tape to repair the breaks and there is tape residue left which we don’t want to try to remove. Surprisingly, even with the damage the radio makes an impressive display. The base is in great condition.
Not being a radio specialist, we don’t know what to say about the works. To us the guts look quite dusty and dirty, but probably complete. Both chrome knobs function, one controls the station dial, and the other turns the radio on and off and controls the volume.
The radio is about 16 inches high and the globe is about 12 inches in diameter from knob to knob. It is very heavy weighing well over 12 pounds. Careful, double boxed insured shipping is $40.00 to the continental USA buyer. If shipping is less because you live close, we refund overcharges. Local (Johnstown, PA) pick-up available.A neat radio for someone to restore!
