DESCRIPTION: Tabletop tube AM radio alarm clock manufactured by Westinghouse in early to mid fifties in excellent working condition. Rare and beautiful color combination. Very cute and proportioned design. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial. Cabinet is original condition top and sides mint green plastic with ivory front. There is a hairline crack on the top left side and a chip on the top left front corner. There is also a chip on the bottom from right corner. Ivory clock face and fantastic clear graphics. The clear front bezel is in excellent condition with no scratches or cracks. Totally transparent no yellowing no cracks no hazing. Awesome color scheme. Very cool and usable everyday. This radio is over 50 years old! No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. Kitschy and very mid-century looking. The tuning dial works fine. The volume knob is chipped along the front edge. Original power cable is securely attached no breaks, splits, or exposed wiring. 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. The clock motor is quiet. The alarm works. The sleep function works. The clock set and alarm set work. All out-of-spec resistors have been replaced with modern correct value and voltage equivalents. There is no loud or pervasive hum. There is no loud or pervasive static between stations. 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 no pets.
