A friend sent me this photo thinking I would want the radio. Can anyone ID it? She didn't know whether it was a repro or not.

Pretty sure it's not ,you can see the pole piece through the missing grill cloth. Maybe a nice little midget. :D

Looks like a small repro of a Philco. According to the size of the VHS movie case to the right of it, it's probably only a foot tall.

A photo of the back would be definitive, even if it's blurrier than this pic. :lol:

The fact that it only has 3 knobs and they aren't black plastic tells me that it's not a Thomas or Randix repro. This model always had 4 knobs.

Oh, didn't even notice the repro has 4 knobs and this one doesn't. Scratch my vote then I guess. Yes a picture of the back 'ell do it.
