Motorola 53-H (1953)
(Bakelite tube table radio)

Motorola 53-H (1953)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

Here's a Motorola Atomic designed radio from 1953 in a beautiful cherry red Bakelite case. Mid-Century at its best. It seems to be a collector's favorite. This atomic era radio is also affectionately referred to as Motorola's "dashboard" model or as some folks call it "Jetson." The cabinet retains a beautiful glossy red without any paint loss, nor scratches, nor "rubs:" simply a 9.5 out of 10 IMHO. The knobs, dial, perfect back, "brights," etc. are all original. Great looking, clear slide-rule dial. Just an outstanding specimen. The white metal mesh grille is in excellent condition with no dents, dings, rust, or warping + the Motorola badge in the center of the grille. Surprisingly, this model was not designed without a tuning dial light. This model was also offered in gray, blue, green and black, but the red color really stands out. This set is playing very well and picking up all my local AM stations & beyond without any problem. Very clean, completely restored chassis. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 11-1/2"W (knob-to-knob, whereas only 8-1/4" across the top) x 6-1/2"H x 7"D.
