Baby Addison A2 in Marbled Navy Blue + White Art Deco Bakelite Radio
Beautifully Marbleized 1940's Art Deco Design
Baby Addison A2 in Marbleized Navy Blue with Creamy White trim Bakelite / Plaskon Tube Radio made circa 1940 by Addison Industries Limited in Canada. The unique styling, bold use of color, and dramatic marbleizing would make this radio a truly beautiful addition to any collection.
This stylized Art Deco radio features the famous "waterfall" speaker grill trim and surround "bumpers" with speed-lines that really make for a streamlined radio design. If you are looking for a great addition to your collection, please consider this beauty.
This particular example is a stunning radio in excellent original condition with no chips, dings, scratches, or repairs on the cabinet. Highly marbleized cabinet has one small hairline crack hidden under the right white trim piece. This is not noticeable from the exterior of the radio as it is completely covered by the trim. It can only be seen when looking in from the back of the radio. In no way does this detract from the radio.
The creamy white Plaskon trim is complete and factory original to the radio and has no chips, burns or repairs. The original matching marbleized knobs are also perfect. The chassis seems complete and still has its original color coordinated dial scale. The dial plastic is original and in great condition with very little yellowing and clear. This model was never meant to have a back, as the screw holes were never drilled at the factory. Has left over glue residue on the bottom where manufactures label was originally placed.
Radio measures approximately 10.25" wide x 6" high x 5" deep. This set is sold "as-is + untested", the chassis seems complete. Set is being sold as a "non-working" vintage electronic device that should be gone over by a qualified technician.
