Namco Radio Co.
The Namco catalin bakelite radio model 601 was manufactured by N.M. Co. NYC, in 4 colors: alabaster(yellow), green, oxblood red, and blue. This early to mid 1930's relatively small catalin radio has deep horizontal grooves/louvers that travel around the entire radio - only radio with such detail. Carved matching catalin colored handle + tenite plastic knobs that usually match the color of cabinet finish off this incredible radio's design.
The Namco is often found damaged due to the manufacturing process. This style radio has also been found with the private labels BesTone + Commander (No Handle). Namco and Commander will say the brand on the dial and the BesTone has a cabinet decal, a larger dial + different dial pointer.
