DESCRIPTION: Beautifully marbled example of a General Electric Model 515F with no cracks, chips or major scratches! Tabletop tube AM clock radio alarm manufactured by General Electric in 1952 excellent+ working condition. This radio is very post war industrial looking even a little Art Deco. This design series from General Electric from the early fifties was very popular. It is difficult to find surviving examples without missing knobs especially the top clock set knob. You can easily find this model online but not always with all the knobs. And without cracks. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without external antenna attachment. Excellent art deco design! Looks very studious, dignified, in my opinion. The volume knob is original matching ivory plastic securely attached. Clock works and keeps accurate time. Clock motor is quiet. No humming no buzzing no ticking noises. Alarm works, Alarm set works. Clock set works. Sleep function works. The brass colored metal clock surround is a nice classy touch. The clock face is a pale blue and burgundy colored face. Very pretty. This radio is over 60 years old! All the dial numbering and lettering is crisp and clear. No missing numbering, dots or dashes, or anything. No smudges or yellowing. No dial light not designed with one but can be added for an extra charge. The tuning and volume dials work fine. The tubes are working fine. The power cord and plug is is a new replacement with no cracks, or splits or electrical tape repair. No exposed wiring. The radio has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected. All wiring has been thoroughly checked for possible bridging and weak solder connection. Comes from non-smoking, mature, clean professional environment.
