Fada Catalin 53 / 5F50 Radio in Maroon with Yellow - Rare Color Combo
Rare Example of this Early FADA 5F50 Catalin Radio
Rare prewar Fada model 53 / 5F50 Catalin radio in maroon with yellow insert grille + knobs. Wonderful Art Deco model made in 1938 by FADA Radio + Electric Company has a beautiful design and size. This Merlot + Yellow color combination is seldom found in the FADA 53 model. Radio has a beautiful gloss to the Catalin cabinet and trim.
All lemon yellow marbleized trim is original to radio, grill has a small hairline that can barely be seen in between the louvers. The maroon cabinet was professionally repaired by Dan Blake over 10yrs ago. Repairs can only been seen when looking closely for them or looking at inside of cabinet. Water-slide decal, dial plastic and back panel are replacements.
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.
