DESCRIPTION: This radio makes sensible use of exquisite looking materials to make its design statement. Even by today's standards, the proportions and subtle textures gives this clock radio a timeless scholarly look. Or, to use the buzzword of the day; it looks "artisanal." LOL. Rare and hard to find manufacturer in a rarely seen color combo. The last one I came across was in 2014! Tabletop tube AM clock radio alarm manufactured by Stromberg Carlson in 1955 in excellent+ working condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is in excellent condition with no chips, splits, or missing material. No cracks on top. There is a hairline crack on the back left top corner. This radio is over 60 years old! No missing letters on front speaker grill logo. The knobs are in very good condition. The pot metal surround is slightly oxidized from age. The clear dial face has no stress cracks. No missing little clock knobs. The gold paint has rubbed off the little clock knobs from normal use. Please see the photo close-up. The clock bezel is clear and transparent not yellowing. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on clock dial lettering. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The clock works and keep accurate time for a mechanical analog design. The alarm works. The clock and alarm set function work. 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 crisp square corners. 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.
