Robins Egg Blue Retro Jetsons 1956 Dumont Model 1120 Tube AM Radio Totally Restored!
DESCRIPTION: Never before seen, never will see it again. Rare Dumont in robin's egg blue. This radio is a querulous dichotomy of cool and quirky. I can't look away, but at the same time I can't decide whether I love or hate it. Your friends will drop their wine glasses when you play your MP3 hits through this eyesore/beauty queen ($99 extra). These old Dumonts from fifties are extremely rare. This particular design is a desirable seafoam color paired with tweed grill. Strange material choice by the manufacturer but makes this design one-of-a-kind. Tabletop tube AM clock radio alarm manufactured by Dumont in 1950's excellent+ working condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is in very good condition with repaired and repainted crack on the top right edge. No crack on the top which is amazing. Replacement grill cloth matches original. The original grill cloth is retained underneath the new replacement. This radio is almost 60 years old and very rare! No missing Dumont label on front speaker grill. The knobs are in excellent condition and securely attached. What's more unusual is the side knob attachment is not stripped from excessive force that is common with this design. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on clock dial lettering. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping. Tuning knob is missing gold metal center insert. Volume knob insert is still present. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The tubes are working fine. All out-of-spec resistors have been replaced with modern correct value and voltage equivalents. There is no loud or pervasive hum. There is no loud or pervasive static between stations unless you operate near modern megahertz devices. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. Backing board is in good condition with one missing corner. The power cord and plug are good original working condition with no cracks, or splits. No exposed wiring. The radio has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected. All wiring has been thoroughly checked for possible bridging and weak solder connection. Comes from non-smoking, mature, clean professional environment no pets. When this radio was new, tail fins were all the rage! This thing belongs in a museum!
