Perfect Art Deco FADA 1000 Catalin Radio
Art Deco FADA "Bullet" Streamliner Model 1000 in lemon yellow with onyx/pea-green marbleized Catalin. 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 onyx trim adds contrast + style to this stunning example of a Machine Age FADA Bullet model. The glossy Catalin cabinet is perfect + has beautiful faint marbleizing that really adds depth to the cabinet.
The cabinet is in excellent condition with no cracks, chips, or repairs. The onyx/pea-green Catalin dial ring, fluted knobs and handle are original to the radio and are in perfect condition with no cracks, stress lines, chips, breaks, burns or repairs. The Art Deco gold "Gemloid" dial face is bright and has no paint wear. Radio retains the original cardboard back panel + grill cloth in great condition. Clear dial plastic cover is a replacement.
