Rare FADA Model 53 Catalin Radio in Emerald Green + Butterscotch
Superb Example of an Early FADA 5F50 Catalin Radio
FADA 53 / 5F50 in Emerald Green with Butterscotch wrap-around grille and knobs. This rarely seen one-owner vibrant emerald green cabinet Fada is beautifully marbleized with yellow and darker green hues. This Art Deco model made in 1938 by FADA Radio + Electric Company has a beautiful design and size. This radio retains the factory gloss, the yellow trim adds contrast and style to this stunning example.
The vibrant green catalin cabinet has one small hairline on the front right corner of the grill opening and a small chip + hairline on the bottom 'foot' of radio(not visible when displayed); these small defects in no way take away fron the beauty and rarity of this radio. The marbleized yellow insert grill and fluted knobs are original to the radio and have no damage. Clear dial plastic cover and water-slide decal are correct replacements. This beautiful FADA has been well taken care of and has very few small scratches consistent with light use. 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.
