Rare HTF Airline "Rudolph" Radio 4 Tube Original Compact Plaskon Bakelite Works!
- Source: eBay
Airline Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Bakelite Plaskon Tube Radio.
The radio was made in the early 1950's and measures approximately 7½"W x 6"T x 5½"D.
The Knobs and Rudolph figure are in very good condition with no cracks, chips or repairs.
The plastic case is white thru and thru; nothing has been painted or repaired.
The only flaws I can find is a tiny 1/2 crack on bottom & the back is missing 3 of the fasteners that hold it on.
When powered up, the red nose lights and the radio plays as various AM stations were received. The on/off switch, volume control and tuning work great.
To maximize reception, the antenna wire needs to be held or connected to a metal frame. To improve performance, the original resistors should be replaced.
Please note, because of its age, this radio should not be played for extended periods of time or left plugged in after use.
You are buying this radio as is with no guarantee on how long it will work.
Will be double boxed for safe shipment.
This very rare & hard to find radio will be the highlight of any radio collection!!
