Radio Matie Coin-Op Radio (1947)

NEW!Beetle Plaskon Bubble Dancer radio made in Los Angeles, CA. The radio with timing mechanism was made for hotel use and came out of a Los Angeles hotel. The bottom of the dial reads "Radio Matie." It is all original. The radio consists of two pieces, with factory construction of being bolted together. The top piece is made of extremely thick ivory Beetle Plaskon with marbling of beige, black and shades of brown. A 3-inch round insert features multi-colored bubbles being played with by the silhouette of a nude female figure, the Bubble Dancer. The 4-3/4" upper slide rule dial and lower case Bubble Dancer are backlit. The chassis has five tubes and is clean. The two knobs are original ivory Plaskon. There is a 1/2-inch tight hairline at the top of the slide rule dial that does not go all the way through the case. The waterfall radio front has five grille bars with the original gold weave grille cloth. As seen in the photos, the top left side of the radio has a red and silver metal instruction plate on the use of its coin operation. The internal coin box has a lock on it with a key. The radio back is metal and locks with a key. Two keys are provided. The radio base is made of black Bakelite. The radio plays well, and picks up stations. It is in excellent condition as can be seen in the photos. The "Radio Matie" hotel coin op is extremely rare. I have never seen another one. 28"W x 14"W x 10-1/4"D.  $2,500.00. (1720125)
