HMV 471

The magnificent art-deco HMV 471 was made in the UK for export, in 1936.

This set is in very fine condition. The detailed wood veneer work is in almost pristine condition, as are the bakelite speaker and dial escutcheons. Everything is original, including the deep red dial. There is no sign of borer. 

The chassis is free of rust and the original EM speaker is in place.

It receives stations well (AM only) and has a lovely tone. The volume control is a 

little scratchy. It is a very solidly made radio, and weighs 20 Kg. 

Dimensions (cm): W 52, H 36, D 34.      $240.
