FADA 1005 (1947)


FADA 1005 (1947)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Yes, I do love this little Art Nouveau styled FADA. FADA was named for Frank Angelo D'Andrea, who founded the company in 1921 and later introduced another line of radios called Andrea. FADA "Bullets" are nice, but to me, this styling is every bit as nice with its stepped top and sloping sides. The case is made from Plaskon and is somewhat translucent, especially in a dim room where the dial light makes the burgundy cabinet glow somewhat. The case has been hand polished, has a few superficial scratches and the scalloped pearlescent handle accents the cabinet. There is a small repaired crack in one of the knobs, however, I am also including new reproduction FADA knobs, so you will receive both sets of knobs. The electronics have been completely restored (no shortcut repairs, internally fused for your safety and has a new polarized power cord), it plays very nicely on the AM broadcast band. Make this one yours before I change my mind and decide to keep it! 10-1/4"W x 6-3/4"H x 5-1/2"D.
