RCA Nipper made circa 1938, this small catalin bakelite mid century radio is big on detail and design. The vertical and horizontal grooves on the cabinet give it a streamlined style. Some attribute the design of this model to famous industrial designer John Vassos, who was well known for other RCA radio designs. The radio has factory original red tuning knob and on/off volume knob. This color was advertised as “Natural Onyx” and has lots of black marbleization in the lightly oxidized yellow cabinet. Exceedingly difficult to find this model without any flaws, this example has a few tight hairlines on the front in the grooved grill area and are visible in the pictures. Electronically restored, it plays well. PLEASE VIEW MY LISTINGS FOR DOZENS MORE CATALIN AND BAKELITE MID CENTURY ART DECO VINTAGE VACUUM TUBE RADIOS.
