Radiette-Phonoplex is the brand name of the Radiette Manufacturing Company in Chicago. A small time radio manufacturer with very little documentation. Not to be confused with Radiette of Keller Fuller Mfg Corp.

I'd consider the brand name quite rare but not that much sought after. There's not much recorded history or documentation about that brand to pump up it's value and collectability. It's not a very technical radio nor is it a high quality radio. It's was originally an affordable, "meat and potatoes", kind of radio for it's time. If it's in nice original condition, whether it works or not, I'd say it's current value is around $100 to $150 which is a fairly standard value. If it's been refinished then it's value and collectability typically goes down, sometimes way down.
