Catalin DeWald Radio 561-2 "Jewel" in Butterscotch + Blue - RARE
Rare Color Combo of a Seldom Seen Model DeWald Radio
Rare Catalin DeWald 561-2 "Jewel or Outline-Grill" Radio in butterscotch with marbleized Blue trim. One of only 3 Catalin radios ever manufactured by DeWald and made in 1939. In 27 years of collecting this is the only one in this color combination that I have owned and only the 4th one I have seen. This radio is about as rare as it gets in the Catalin genre.
The butterscotch Catalin has a deep shine + original factory gloss, rich color and glow, which, is highlighted with the contrasting blue(patina to green) trim. The marbleized trim is all original with no cracks, or repairs + has taken on a beautiful rich green patina. This beautiful set is in in great condition with no cracks, hairlines, tube burns or repairs.
Radio cabinet has no cracks, chips, hairlines, tube burns or repairs. Right knob has a small chip towards the back edge that is not noticeable. Grill cloth is original to the radio. Dial plastic + decal are exact replacements. Radio and trim have small scratches consistent with careful use + age. This great radio would make a great addition to any radio or Art Deco collection.
Radio measures: 9.5" wide x 6.25" high x 6" 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.
