DESCRIPTION: An amazing mid century modern radio alarm clock with distinctive checkerboard cubist inspired design layout. Look at the cheese grate speaker grill! This AM Tabletop tube clock radio manufactured by GE General Electric in the 1960-65 time frame still in excellent working condition. The metal front faschia is evenly pitted from humidity. All knobs, dial pointer, etc are present, working, not missing. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without external antenna attachment although I live in the Connecticut country side where reception is not so good. Excellent unique design! Plastic clock face cover is uncracked and clear. The lettering is clear with no loss. Original ivory case in good condition with no cracks and some small chips. See picture of middle upper left edge by clock face and far right edge.. The volume and tuning knobs are original and securely attached. This radio is over 50 years old! All the dial numbering and lettering is crisp and clear. No smudges or yellowing. The tuning and volume dials work fine. The unit powers on and off with a definite click. All out of spec 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. The modern original power cord and plug is in excellent working condition with no cracks, or splits or electrical tape repair. 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, FDR was president! This thing belongs in a museum!
