Vintage Rare 1939 New York Worlds Fair Rca Victor Trylon Perisphere 5 Tube Radio:
RCA had big plans for the opening of the 1939-40 New York World's Fair as the time and place for the public debut of their television system.As part of their promotion, they issued this radio, the model 40X-56.The front of the cabinet has a Repwood panel which depicted the World's Fair symbol, the Trylon and Perisphere, stand outin whiteagainst the rich brown World's Fair background.The RCA building was featured as well, in the lower right corner. "NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR" is imprinted across the top of the front panel, with "TRYLON-PERISPHERE" and "RCA BUILDING" imprinted at the lower left and right. Still has the label on the bottom of the radio which lists the model and all of the held and pending patents for the radio. The radiomeasures 6" x 9" x 6", is a standard 5-tube design of the day, isall original and unrestored and has not been tested. Take notice of imperfections captured in the front facing image. There are imperfections to the Trylon symbol as the radio has not been restored.This radio is very rare and when they are available I have seen them sale for more than $ 2k. A great project or collection piece for Radio and New York Worlds Fair Aficionados!Good luck to the winning buyer!
