DESCRIPTION: I had to invent my own word for this radio! I have never seen my new English word used to describe anything else. This thing is so truly "Ugly" and "Gorgeous" in my opinion! Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Silvertone in late 1950's good working condition. This radio is the epitome of retro Jetsons age styling! Rare and beautiful! Original factory molded color called Coral but looks like hot pink. The front, sides, and top still retain some of the original factory glossiness with little surface scratching and swirlies. What's more, this model features wild gold tweed and wears a regal looking center Silvertone logo! This is a very rare model in any condition. There are two fine hairline cracks emanating front the center in a V and one fine hairline crack running along the front edge. There is a small part of the top grill edge that has chipped off. There are a few small oxidation spots on the left side grill chrome trim. No other cracks, splits, chips or missing material. The pink color is out of this world on this one. It's not like a 59 pink Eldorado. It's like a factory pink 56 Buick Limited Riviera. You won't see another one any time soon. The pink knobs are faded. The gold tweed fabric is original, not ripped, no stains. This radio is over 55 years old! Dial light works great! No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. 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!
