Balkeit was the brand name for RPC of Chicago, who made radios for a large number of catalogue companies. This is one of the most interesting models, called "Around the World" for the various time zones in different countries. Shortwave was the internet 80 years ago, offering the latest news. The cabinet is very fancy with various veneers, with the central part of the grille made of Birdseye maple. They banded this area with hand laid inlay beading, making a very fancy radio. The radio is a five-tube super-het chassis which offers both AM and Shortwave. There are additional controls which are very interesting. There is a fine tuning feature along with a tone control making for a deluxe level of service. The cabinet is original finish with replacement speaker cloth and the factory installed wood knobs.
