Sparton 500C Radio Blue Cloisonné with Catalin Cabinet - Rare
Walter Dorwin Teague Rare Art Deco Beauty
The Sparton Cloisonné model 500C radio introduced in 1939 is a veritable Art Deco masterpiece designed by Walter Dorwin Teague. Its compact housing features a colorful metallic sky blue cloisonné front, exquisitely trimmed with a streamline lace-work of chrome and framed with yellow catalin housing. This is the only radio designed that combines all three materials.
This radio is perfect with no cracks, chips or repairs to the butterscotch catalin cabinet or metallic blue Cloisonné front. Ivory plastic knobs + blue grill cloth are original to the set. This is an incredible radio that is seldom offered for sale especially in this great of a condition.
This compact radio measures approximately 8" wide by 5" high by 4.25 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.
