Cabinet is original molded brown color. The front fabric grill is in excellent condition. 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.
