Two 1950's Tube Radios

Offered are two strongly designed colored plastic tube type radios from the 1950's. Both would be considered "Googie" in style and are excellent examples of 1950's industrial design aesthetic.

The top pictured tan radio is a Canadian Philips B1C12U, also called the "Banana" radio. The lower pictured pink radio is an Airline brand GEN1667A. Both radios are in good cosmetic condition with no chips, cracks or deep scratches. The chassis for both are 5-tube, AC superhet type and appear clean and fully intact with no observeable problems. The electronics have not been tested. The Philips radio needs the plug-in power cord (refer to photo of back).

Measurements:

Airline: 8"H X 10"W X 4.5"D

Philips: 4"H X 12"W X 6"D

Photos have been included to show various angles and interiors of the radio. Questions will be answered as promptly as possible. Just don't wait until an hour before the auction ends to ask. Thanks and happy bidding.
