Another vintage valve radio that once only looked fit for the skip but fortunately the metalwork saved it. Made in 1935 by GEC, it has a medium-sized dark wood and chrome cabinet. It’s a great upright radio with really simple and elegant styling.
The metal surround was originally completely black, we cleaned a bit and then just couldn’t stop, to our amazement we were able to reveal a great shiny metal finish. The distressed and wormy cabinet was then transformed, the electronics repaired and made safe and another radio lives to make music again.
Looking good at nearly eighty years old after a complete overhaul and restoration.
