DESCRIPTION: Very pretty and nicely proportioned little counter top radio in contrasting red and white. Very mid century retro looking. Would look outstanding in a little vintage camper! All original factory molded colors. No cracks. No chips. No repaints. None needed. The top has a few dull patches like something scratchy was resting on top of it at one point but the rest is very shiny. Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Silvertone in 1959 in excellent working condition. Logo, tuning, and volume dial paint markings are still intact and good condition with very little rub off. Knobs are original and securely attached. This radio is over 60 years old! The tuning dial works fine. The power cable is securely attached. 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. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. 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, tailfins were all the rage!
