If we knew what country the studio scenes were filmed in, we could start there, looking at pictures of vintage Euro radios.

Not so hard... There are only so many models of radios made in Poland. I searched on 1935 to 1940 using the picture gallery at Radiomuseum. Viola -- two possible models, at least:

Even the wood grain pattern matches, like it's the exact same radio used in the movie.. :shock:
