Pastel Pink 1957 Bulova Model 120 Tube AM Clock Radio Sounds Mah-valous!
DESCRIPTION: When Bulova designed the gold grill, they were thinking bling. This vintage Bulova clock radio has a fine jewelry look to it. It's retro and Jetson appeal with a 5th Ave twist. Think "Touch of Mink" or "Breakfast at Tiffany's." I can see these clock radios at Bergdorf Goodmans in the late fifties. Very upscale looking! Tabletop tube AM clock radio alarm manufactured by Bulova in 1957 timeframe in excellent+ working and physical condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is in excellent condition. The front is better than the top. Even fading due to exposure to sunlight. No cracks, no chips no major scratches. This vintage radio is over 60 years old! All original everything. No repaints. No cabinet repairs needed. Front bejeweled and faceted grill is original. The knobs are in excellent but faded condition. No missing clock or alarm set knobs. The clear dial face has no cracks and is clear as a spring day in Central Park. The clock face is clean with no tarnishing or greening. Please see the photo close-up. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on clock dial lettering. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The clock works and keep accurate time for a mechanical analog design. The clock motor is silent. No grinding no humming no buzz no ticking noises. The alarm works. The buzzer works. The clock and alarm set function work. There is a appliance timer function in back. The tubes are working fine.
