Ref: RA404

Rare yellow catalin General Television radio model 591, with beautiful contrasting ivory handle, grill, knobs, and dial face frame.  Made by General Television Radio Corp of Chicago, Illinois, model 591 is the only catalin model made by the company.  The cabinet on the catalin GTV has great clear and yellow swirls that add depth to the radio.  The gold face features a stunning textured deco pattern, with a red Saturn shaped station indicator, beneath which "General Television" appears.

The radio is in original, untouched condition, with a beautiful and natural gloss and is just a superb example of this General Television radio.  Cabinet is in perfect condition with no cracks, chips, tube burns or repairs.  The ivory plaskon trim is complete + original to the radio and has no cracks, chips or repairs. The dial plastic is original with no yellowing. Radio retains the original manufacturer's label affixed to the chassis designating chassis as a model 591, correct for the catalin version of the radio.

Radio measures approximately: 8.75" Wide, 5.5" Deep, and 7" Tall to the top of the handle. This set is sold "as-is + untested", the chassis seems complete, original cord is cracked and should be replaced.  Set is being sold as a "non-working" vintage electronic device that should be gone over by a qualified technician.
