FADA 652 "Temple" (1946)


FADA 652 "Temple" (1946)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The FADA Catalin "Temple" is a true classically designed radio. The FADA name originated from Frank Angelo D'Andrea, who founded the company in 1921. With its sleek rounded case, it's obvious how it received its "Temple" nickname. FADA produced many radios over the years, but is best known for its Catalin models. This set is as close to mint condition as I have ever seen. The original warm onyx oxidized case and butterscotch trim are in great condition, no cracks, chips, hairline cracks or tube burns. Everything is original except for a perfect reproduction glass dial. The dials are often cracked on these models due to the Catalin shrinking. It's truly an icon of industrial machine age design. The radio has been checked completely by a professional, and is playing very well, clearly picking up all my local AM stations, although I would not recommend extended playing as nothing good is likely to happen! Any questions, or more pictures, just ask. About 11"W x 7"H x 6"D.
