FADA 659 Catalin "Temple" (1946)

FADA 659 Catalin "Temple" (1946)
This FADA model 659 Super Heterodyne shortwave radio circa 1946 was made in a marble pea green Catalin case with caramel swirls, and Catalin caramel colored bezel and knobs. Well known for their Catalin radios, FADA created this post WWII model as a duplicate of their popular pre-war model 652 Temple. It's really a stunning example of a beautiful Art Deco Catalin radio in contrasting colors. It's in super nice condition with no cracks, chips or repairs. The case has been professionally hand polished back to its original luster. The dial surround and fluted knobs are original, and the set also has its original back. This radio has been well taken care of over the past 75 years. Not that it matters to most people, but the chassis has been restored, and the radio is playing fine picking up all my local AM stations. The short wave is the old police band, so not much to pick up these days. I don't recommend playing Catalin radios. It will be shipped in two separate boxes, one for the case and one for the chassis. Price includes shipping anywhere (USA). A truly beautiful piece of Art Deco eye candy!  $1,225.00. (1150720)
