RCA 9-SX "Nipper" Radio Black Plaskon + Beetle Plastic American Art Deco
Seldom Seen Model in a Great Color Combo
Seldom seen Machine Age pre-war 1939 RCA victor known as the "Nipper" 9-SX in jet black Plaskon with a salt + pepper Beetle Plastic grill. This model is an incredibly well designed streamlined tube radio.
This little radio is constructed of 3 separate Plaskon Bakelite pieces, first is the Plaskon body, second is the wrap around deco grill with the great RCA Victor logo engraved vertically on the rounded corner, and third and lastly is the top Plaskon stepped trim piece. Even though these midget sized radios were popular in their time and offered in many color combinations, they have become hard to find in any combination due to its fragile Plaskon case.
This radio is as close to perfect as can be found and has the original knobs and is free of any cracks, hairlines, tube burns or repairs to the trim or body. This radio has one small chip on the top right rear corner, dial has been replaced and back panel is a replacement.
The radio measures approximately: 5" high by 8" wide by 5" 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.
