I received today this really rare bakelite radio from soviet union, it was made by Malûtka in 1948 and it's really a small radio ( 5,7 inches tall ) and only has one button for the controlled public cable radio and for political and communal announcements. No choice of programs. the bakelite is black and it is it's original color and has still the original cord

it's really a nice rare and small radio I'm really happy to have in my collection

    Very cool, do you know the broadcast frequency that it set for and line power that the radio requires?

    Hi, sorry I have no idea, european radios were used on 220V or 230 V and if you used it in USA you'll needed a transformer

    I didn't test this radio as the cord has some damages and as it was made of string, this is not really safe to plug in

    don't plug this radio on the power (110 or 220)
    these radios called in Soviet Union "radio point" or "kitchen radio"
    All buildings constructed during soviet period and flats were specially equipped to receive official program.A plug in the kitchen or living room and you could get your "information"
    They are more kind of loudspeakers.
    Very nice item

    I thought it might be just a speaker unfortunately. Like to see inside.
