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 originally had an original cloth grille in front. Several of these models were originally offered that way. The present grille is a reproduction from Paul Pontrello, a leading expert on Catalin products (http://www.pontrello.com/radios.html). The original warm onyx oxidized case, tan escutcheon & knobs are 100% original and in perfect condition, no cracks, chips, hairline cracks or tube burns. It's truly an icon of industrial machine age design. It also has its original back. The radio has been checked completely by a professional, and is playing OK, picking up all my local AM stations, although I would not recommend extended playing as nothing good is likely to happen! These radios are more for exhibition than function. Any questions, or more pictures, just ask. About 11"W x 7"H x 6"D.
