Nice vintage Mid-Century Modern tube powered AM table radio in a Pink plastic case from a recent estate sale. Works well with good reception and no overt hum. Station dial has the 50s Civil Defense markings. Model printed on the backing board is 57R with a stamped or printed "4" in a different font and color; but I've also seen this model in radio books and online as a 57R4. I've seen the knob design referred to as Pinwheel or Steering Wheel and it looks to me like a space age Space Station. Station numbers are still clearly visible. In any case, it's in great shape with no cracks or chips but does show some wear from use and age. Displays nicely and would make a great addition to your collection or in a retro modern décor.
