1949 Coronado model 43-8120A table top tube radio. This seldom seen beauty features a spectacular catalin swirl colored. Bakelite cabinet, round dashboard style dial, great Art Deco appeal, built in loop antenna and great performance. The tiny, custom painted Bakelite cabinet is done in candy apple red, orange and black swirls with a premium clear top coat. It’s unique shape really showcases the transition from the Art Deco period to the early jet age designs. The round grill and matching dial is reminiscent of automobile dashboards from the same era. The cabinet was obviously well cared for over the years as there are no cracks, chips, breaks or repairs. Chrome trim & accents finish the cabinet off perfectly. This little beauty is sure to turn heads no matter which room in the home or office you choose to display it in. All numbers are legible with no wear. The larger knob controls tuning and the smaller knob controls on/off & volume. From the previous owner: All tubes in the small 4 tube chassis were tested with any weak tubes being replaced. All caps, filters, and resistors were checked and replaced as needed. All brittle or bare wiring was replaced or re-insulated. The chassis has been lubed and re-aligned for optimal performance. Using just the built in loop antenna the radio performs very well for such a small set.
