Philco Model 46-420 Bakelite Radio (1946)
I love the soft lines of this radio. You won't find a
square corner or a straight edge anywhere. The unusual
top-mounted knobs give it a sort of hippo appearance
(or is it a very old-fashioned space alien?)
This is a six-tube radio, using 7A8, 35Z5GT, 7C6,
7C7, 7B7, and 50B5 tubes.
Like many Bakelite sets, this one was also offered
with an ivory paint finish.
