Colonial 700 "New World Globe" (1933)
Colonial 700 "New World Globe" (1933)
This rare set has just been totally restored and is probably as close to perfect as can be found. Designed by Raymond Loewy & manufactured by the Colonial Radio Corporation, this radio was the union of Loewy's technical skills acquired from working at Westinghouse and a new material called Bakelite. The radio's speaker is in the base. The cast aluminum ring played a dual role as the earth's equator & the connector of the two metal knobs that controlled the power, volume & station tuning. The entire radio has been disassembled, the upper & lower chassis have been rebuilt with caps & weak tubes replaced, a replacement diode cord & external antenna added. The NOS grille cloth is a correct replacement. All other parts are original to the radio. The fragile globe has no cracks, chips, cracks, tube burns or repairs. The maps have minimal paint loss/fading. The ring & the top finial have been refinished to match the globe's original "axis." It has been hand-polished and is picking up all my local stations loud & clear across the AM dial. This radio would be an incredible addition to any collection. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 16"H x 10"W.  $5,100.00. (1750091)
