1940s Philips

1947 Philips 462A

Let me introduce a large brown bakelite valve radio with gold trim made by Philips in 1947. This remarkable radio has very interesting styling with shaped bars on the front and an unusual free-standing dial glass which perches proudly on the top. For obvious reasons, most of these radios are now minus the glass and this wasn’t a design that endured.

Although a great looking radio, it was a complete pain to photograph on such a gloomy day. No worries though, this is another commission for Bluetooth conversion and its owner already loves it. Job done.😁
