RCA X-11 "Bookshelf" Radio (1948)


RCA X-11 "Bookshelf" Radio (1948)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
RCA had a manufacturing plant in Chile in the late 1940s. One of the sets made during this time was this export model X-11. The sets were made for 220V operation, and were very fragile as the Bakelite case was extremely thin. Very few survived without some type of damage. It's an incredibly small radio, only about 9"W x 4-1/2"H x 3-1/2"D. This radio is in the condition that I acquired it in. This case had some hairline cracks that appear to have been professionally repaired, and are not much of a distraction, in my opinion. The grille cloth is in place & original. The radio chassis has been converted from 220V to 110V, and the radio is playing adequately, picking up my local stronger stations. It utilizes an antenna wire for best reception. We all love these classic radios to work, but I would not recommend anyone operating this set for an extended periods of time. This is a very hard to find radio in any condition, and a one-of-a-kind design. In mint condition they usually sell for $500 upward. This is a good chance to own a less than perfect set for a reasonable price. It would look great in any collection. Free shipping to anywhere in the Continental USA.
