Incredible Deco Addison 5 "Courthouse" in Red + Yellow Catalin
Intense Marbleizing Makes it Look Like it is on Fire
This incredibly marbleized oxblood red case and butterscotch trim Catalin Addison Model 5 is a magnificent, exquisitely crafted Art Deco radio. Manufactured in the 1940's by ADDISON INDUSTRIES LIMITED in Toronto, Canada. This model has to be one of the most architecturally inspired radio design and because of this has become known to collectors as the "Courthouse" Addison.
The Catalin has a deep shine, rich color and glow and also has exceptionally striking yellow and orange colorful marbleizing that looks like veins of fire running through the cabinet. The radio is in original, untouched condition, and is just a stunning example of this Addison model.
This beautiful set is in in great condition with no cracks, chips, tube burns or repairs. The five butterscotch vertical grill bars are original as are the three pinwheel knobs. The case has one small superficial interior hairline at one of the screw holes that does not go through to the outside and in no way takes away from the beautiful radio. This sometimes happened at the factory when they drilled the screw holes. The radio retains its original reverse painted dial glass also in excellent condition. The grill cloth is original and has no tears or stains and has only a small amount of wear. This is truly a remarkable radio in excellent condition.
This stately radio measures approximately: 12.5" wide by 9" high by 7" 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.
