FADA 1000 "Bullet" Catalin Radio in Butterscotch + Red
Incredible One Owner FADA 1000 Catalin Radio
Incredible original Art Deco FADA 'Bullet' Streamliner Model 1000 in butterscotch and bright red marbleized catalin. This is a one owner radio and is one of the best yellow + red Fada 1000s that I have owned. This radio styling epitomizes 1940’s Streamline design. Its sleek, rounded lines suggest speed and practicality, hallmarks of streamlined industrial design from those years. FADA produced many radios and televisions over the years, but its catalin radios, particularly the "Bullet" are the best-known models.
The catalin cabinet cabinet displays a rich, warm butterscotch patina that only 70 years can achieve. The original bright red trim adds contrast and style to this stunning example of a FADA Bullet model. The cabinet is in excellent condition with no cracks, chips, repairs or tube burns. This radio is as clean as one can be found and would truly make a great addition to any radio or Deco collection.
The bright red marbleized catalin dial ring, fluted knobs and handle are original to the radio and also in great condition with no damage. Radio has original trim, grill cloth, and back panel in superb condition. The Art Deco gold "Gemloid" dial face is bright and in great condition. Clear dial plastic cover is a correct replacement. Radio has been well taken care of and only shows some fine scratches consistent with age + careful use.
Radio measures approximately: 10.25" 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.
