Philco 48-460 "Hippo" (1948)
(plastic tube table radio)

Philco 48-460 "Hippo" (1948)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

The Philco "hippo" models have long been a favorite among collectors, because of their impressive lighted dial using an early form of fiber optic light diffusion through clear plastic. A very cool effect in a darkened room! This six-tube chassis has been gone through with all new filter and paper capacitors, resistors changed that were out of tolerance, strong tested set of tubes, new line cord, controls cleaned and lubricated. It plays strong across the AM band with its loop antenna, receiving all of my local stations. The cabinet is painted in a striking mint green. 12"W x 7-1/2"H x 6-3/4"D.
