Symphony Catalin Bakelite radio "Split Grille" style design with handle + metal embossed gold and red foil tag. Made in 1938-1939 by Record-O-Vox Inc. and branded as Symphony This model is similar in style to the Crosley G1465 catalin radio + the Detrola 281 catalin radio - both of which have the split grill design.
Symphony differs from the others because of the foil name tag, dial face, pointer, knobs + that it does have a handle. Both Symphony and Detrola catalin radios have grooves on the front of cabinet that wrap-around from the side. The Crosley catalin does not have the wrap-around grooves....only on the sides.
