RCA 75X17 "Oriental" (1948)


RCA 75X17 "Oriental" (1948)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Here's a very nice example of the RCA Oriental motif AM radio with raised painted graphics. The main scene on top is a man flying a kite over a bridge. The landscape background on the dial is excellent, the hand-painted scenes on the surround-case are in excellent condition and eye-catching from any angle with NO touchups. It carries a beam of light to the pointer's red arrow tip. Absolutely no cracks or chips and no paint touch up at all. The headline of an RCA sales sheet on these radios says, "The Timeless Enchantment of Hand Painted Chinese Art Weaves A Magic Spell of Exotic Beauty Into Your Home." "The mystic charm ... the timeless enchantment of the Orient ... make them yours with this most unique of all table radios. On appropriate backgrounds of black, red, and white, the Far East beauty of symmetrical pagodas and graceful willows is captured in genuine hand paintings." And...I say "Even your wife would appreciate this one." Timeless beauty from 1948. Unrestored, but plays well for a fiver with an internal antenna with option to add longer antenna along with the patented "Golden Throat" engineering. 10"W x 7"H x 7"D.
