Philco 46-420
(Bakelite tube table radio)

Philco 46-420

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

From my hippopotami collection here is a beautiful brown swirled Philco Bakelite Hippopotamus! This Philco "hippo," like the pygmy hippopotamus, is extinct. There aren't any more made. This wonderful pond waddler saw the light of day way back in 1946! Not necessarily scarce these days but the real nice ones are more difficult to find. Electronically reconditioned and aligned with all new paper and electrolytic capacitors and all out of tolerance resistors replaced. A new power cord has been added, too! The six tubes are strong and there is an external antenna connection for station sensitivity. A Jim Dennis Scale of Beauty "Hippopotamus-amphibius Special!" If you'd like additional pictures please let me know. 11-1/2"W x 7-3/4"H x 7"D.
