Blue Plaskon RCA 9-SX "Nipper" with Beetle Plastic Trim - Beautiful
Seldom Seen Model in a Great Color Combo
Great Machine Age RCA Victor Radio known as the "Nipper" 9-SX in bright blue Plaskon with a Beetle Plastic grill. This 1939 model is an incredibly well designed streamlined tube radio.
This little radio is constructed of 3 separate Plaskon Bakelite pieces, first is the Plaskon body, second is the wrap around deco grill with the great RCA Victor logo engraved vertically on the rounded corner, and third + lastly is the top Plaskon stepped trim piece. Even though these midget sized radios were popular in their time and offered in many color combinations, they have become hard to find in any combination due to its fragile Plaskon case.
This radio is as close to perfect as can be found and has the original blue knobs + is free of any cracks, tube burns or repairs to the trim or body. Fragile Dial is orignal and in great condition, radio retains original back panel + rear blue knob. This radio has a few very small hairlines common to plaskon radios.
The radio measures approximately: 5" high by 8" wide by 5" deep. This set is sold "as-is + untested", the chassis seems complete, cord is cut. Set is being sold as a "non-working" vintage electronic device that should be gone over by a qualified technician.
