Halson Catalin Radio A5 'Dwarf' in Marbleized Green - Rare
Seldom Seen Small Green Marbleized Deco Catalin Radio
Halson catalin radio model A5 'Dwarf' manufactured in 1938 by the Halson Radio + Television Corp of Meriden, CT. The Halson is a stunning small radio that is rarely seen. 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. This is a rare radio that is seldom available in any color combination or condition.
The glossy Brazilian green onyx catalin has beautiful marbleizing that really adds depth to the cabinet. Catalin cabinet has a repair on the bottom left of grill opening and grill bars. Repair can only been seen when looking closely for them or by looking on inside of cabinet. Ivory plaskon knobs are original to the radio and in perfect condition. The fragile metal foil dial face is original and shows sign of use, common on this model due to it not having a dial cover. Gold grill cloth is original showing some signs of age and use.
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.
