Stunning + Rare Example of a Blue Highly Swirled FADA Catalin 1000
Striking FADA 'Bullet' Model 1000 in Blue with Butterscotch Catalin radio with incredible marbling - this is a beautiful + original Art Deco radio. The bluish-green patina on this radio is beautiful - radio has only been lightly polished to a high gloss. The green(blue) colored cabinet has intense veins of yellow with tones of blue running through it that makes this an incredible example. This radio styling epitomizes 1940's Streamline design with its sleek rounded lines that 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.
This rare Catalin radio has no cracks, chips, nicks, repairs, or tube burns. The original + perfect yellow trim adds contrast and style to this stunning example of a FADA Bullet Streamliner model. Radio retains the original cardboard back panel, early style gold grill cloth in superb condition. Clear dial plastic cover is a replacement. Radio has been well taken care of and only shows some fine scratches consistent with age + careful use.
This highly marbleized blue and yellow Fada 'Bullet' is as clean as one can be found and would truly make a great addition to any radio or Deco collection.
