The Surcouf "Oceanic"

Th is a radio recently discovered up for bids on eBay.  I have never seen a radio like this before! It is described as being manufactured with BOTH Bakelite and wood - a very rare occurance. The style is absolutely pure deco.

Highly unusual Mother of Pearl

Popular in the 40s, the radio would attach to your headboard and the little speaker would be under the pillow!

The "Lumitone" Rocket
Lamp/Radio. Made by Mitchell Mfg in 1940. 16" tall from base to lamp socket. Reflects the beginning of the space-age craze of the late 50's. (That's not the original lampshade).

Deco defined! These two -toned
catalins are very collectable

Would you buy this at a garage sale?
Think again...sold at auction for $1000.00! It's the highly sought after marble swirl Catalin body that brings the price.
The Arvin 302
Here is a radio/record player that exemplifies the early  part of  the "dashboard" radio era .The chrome grill is much too cool!
