Mantola R-651 (1946)
(Bakelite tube table radio)

Mantola R-651 (1946)


Streamlined Bakelite cabinet is an ivory repaint from a spray can; it's not a bad paint job but it's just a low quality finish by my standards. There are repaired cracks on the bottom corners on both sides of the cabinet; these appear to be tight, and presenting no immediate problem. There's also a chip in one of the small right-hand louvers. On the bright side, this set was tested before listing and it played quite well with good sound/reception and no apparent technical problems. Plaskon knobs are original and there's a nice replacement hardboard back.
