Halson Catalin Radio A5 'Dwarf' in Brazilian Onyx Green - Rare
Seldom Seen Translucent Green Marbleized Deco Catalin Radio
Rare Halson catalin radio model A5 'Dwarf' manufactured in 1938 by the Halson Radio + Television Corp of Meriden, CT. This Halson midget size radio advertisement of "Fits into the palm of your hand" was perfect due to its small size. The Brazilian green onyx catalin cabinet is heavily marbleized with tones of green, yellow, clear and brown that add depth to the luscious catalin cabinet. The small size of this radio combined with the great color makes for a stunning Art Deco radio.
The glossy Brazilian green onyx catalin has beautiful marbleizing that really adds depth to the cabinet. Catalin cabinet has a Dan Blake repair on the top left and on the underside of radio. Repairs can only been seen when looking closely for them or by looking on inside of cabinet. Knobs are correct replacements as is the dial face, which is prone to damage. Gold grill cloth is a replacement from the 1930's with a similar pattern to the original. Chassis is not original to this radio but is out of a similar radio + fits perfectly. This is a rare radio that is seldom available in any color combination or condition.
Radio measures approximately: 7.25" wide by 4.25" 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.
