Fada 53 Catalin Radio in Yellow + Blue - Deco
Great Example of an Early FADA 53/5F50 Catalin Radio
Great small Fada model 53 / 5F50 Catalin radio in marbleized yellow with a highly marbleized blue grill insert. Wonderful Art Deco model made in 1938 by FADA Radio + Electric Company has a beautiful design and size. This yellow and blue example is all-original and in great condition with a beautiful glossy finish. Blue grill which has taken on a rich greenish-blue patina has intense yellow marbleizing + a beautiful transparency that gives it depth.
Catalin cabinet, grill and knobs have no cracks, chips or repairs. This is a great example of an all-original early FADA.
The radio measures 7.75" wide by 5.75" high by 4.75" 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.
