Remler "Scottie" 40 Radio w/ Blue Mirror Case - Rare
Seldom Seen Remler Bakelite Radio w/ Original Blue Glass Case
Fantastic Remler model 40 "Scottie" with factory blue mirror case. This is truly a rare find + a stunning looking Deco radio. The mirror case was an add-on available at Remler in 1936 at a cost of $20.00 - see original advertisement. Remler model 40 "Scottie" radio just slid into the mirror case to transform an already great looking Bakelite radio into a luxurious mirrored radio. Very few cases seem to have been sold due to cost or have survived over time as they are rarely found. Made in San Francisco, California, Remler radios were often characterized by their Deco designs in black and/or ivory with their distinctive Scotty dog logo.
The blue mirror glass case is in wonderful original condition with no cracks or chips to the cobalt glass. Mirrors are original and look beautiful, with only minor scratches and oxidation consistent with age + use. The accent chrome trim on the case's edges has some minor wear. Case retains original tan felt on bottom.
The accompanying model 40 "Scottie" radio has a black Bakelite body + an inset ivory Plaskon Art Deco grille and knobs. The radio retains a beautiful luster to the cabinet + trim and has only one hairline on the bottom screw hole. Scotty dog still has his often broken tail. Radio has original knobs, gold grill cloth and matching black Bakelite back panel all in great condition.
This extremely well built radio is pretty heavy for it's small size of approximately: 11" wide by 7" high by 5.75" 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.
