Great Example of a DeWald "Lyre" in a Rare Color Combo

Ref: RA192

Beautiful and incredibly marbleized sand colored case and brown trim Catalin DeWald model A-501 "Lyre" is a magnificent, exquisitely crafted Art Deco radio.  Manufactured in 1938 by DeWald Radio Mfg Corp, out of New York.  This stunning model has to be one of the most musically inspired radio designs and because of this has become known to collectors as the "Lyre" or "Harp" DeWald.

The Catalin has a deep shine, rich color and glow and also has exceptionally striking yellow, orange + brown colorful marbleizing.  The radio is in original, untouched condition, and is just a stunning example of this DeWald model.

This beautiful set is in great condition with no chips, tube burns or repairs. Cabinet has one hairline crack coming off of the right rear screw-hole going to the back of the cabinet  - this in no way detracts from the beauty of this radio as it can only be seen when looking closely. The brown pinwheel knobs are original and still have the original felt washers behind them to protect the cabinet. The radio retains its original reverse painted curved dial glass also in excellent condition and the gold herringbone pattern grill cloth shows only a small amount of wear. Cardboard back panel and manufacturers sticker are still present. This is truly a remarkable radio in excellent condition.

This radio measures approximately:  9.75" wide by 6.25" high by 5.5" 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.
