Rouge Pink 1959 Westinghouse Model H540T5A Vacuum Tube AM Clock Radio Seductive Looking and Sounding!
DESCRIPTION: Tabletop tube AM clock radio alarm manufactured by Westinghouse in 1959 time frame excellent+ cosmetic and working condition. Cabinet is in very good condition. There is a series of hairline cracks on the clock offset surround area by 7 o'clock. There is a chip on the back edge of the bottom. This radio is over 55 years old! The color has faded evenly over the years but to a very pretty shade of pink. All the little clock knobs are still present. Amazing! I have seen many examples of this model radio in pink and many are faded. Unusually, the tuning knob in all cases did not fade at the same rate as the rest of the cabinet. The clock bezel is clear and transparent not yellowing. No stress fractures, yellowing, or major scratches. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on clock dial lettering. Slight rub off of Westinghouse paint from raised logo. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping. This radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The clock works and keep accurate time. The clock motor is quiet on this one. The alarm works. The clock and alarm set function work. No dial light. Not designed with one. Has no seconds clock arm. This clock has a little star at 12 o'clock. A small rotating register goes black to white to count the seconds. Never seen this before! Highly unusual design. Quiet seconds rotation. No humming, clicking or any sound. The replacement cable is in excellent working condition. 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 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.
