General Electric L-572 (1941)
(Catalin tube table radio)

General Electric L-572 (1941)

Here is a very fine example of GE's Art Deco entry into the Catalin world (they only made two models) and is in a very desirable color combo. Beautiful pre-War 1941 General Electric model L-572 Maroon & Butterscotch eye candy. Deep shine and rich colors as you can tell in pics. I apologize for the glare, but I tried in several lighting conditions and the glare was always there... just so shiny. Both colors have even colors & no blotching (those are shadows) The trim, insert grille, handle, and fluted knobs are all a rich swirled butterscotch color and original + beautiful lit dial, showing the translucency of the cabinet itself. There are no major cracks, scratches, repairs nor repro parts, tho there is a very tight hairline (approx. 3/4") that looks more like a very light scratch that runs from the left corner of grille diagonally toward the left bottom corner (not in grille itself). It is so fine I had trouble capturing a pic (see last pic) & same when looking at it in person; very minor, but wanted to mention. It has been electronically restored and plays well, picking up all my local stations, but who plays a Catalin anyway? Not I. Also most of the original factory label is intact on the bottom. This great radio would make a great addition to any radio or Art Deco collection. It will not disappoint! 9-1/2"W x 6-1/4"H x 6"D.  $1,150.00. (1640281)
