Guild TK-1577 "Teakettle" Novelty Radio (1957)


Guild TK-1577 "Teakettle" Novelty Radio (1957)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This is my favorite Guild novelty. The radio plays loud and clear on OR off of its trivet power supply. The rectifier and filter capacitors in the power supply have been replaced with fresh ones. The radio originally had a big square 9V battery that isn't manufactured any more. I added two plastic sleeves to accept two four-pack AA battery holders and I have even included eight brand new Nickel-cadmium batteries in the radio. They will keep a nice charge while on its stand. The body is solid wood, not veneer. I have refinished it and applied multiple coats of lacquer. The brass pieces are solid brass, not plated. I polished each piece on a high speed buffer then coated them with special Mohawk "Lacquer for brass." It will not need to be re-polished. The white part is ceramic, very fragile. When I ship this item I will double box the radio and I will ship the cast iron trivet power supply in a separate box. I have plenty of experience with these as well as several parts left over from damaged shipments that came to me. It won't happen to you. Two boxes for shipping, roughly 18 pounds total.
