This is a Deco, 1920's Stewart-Warner speaker. I have been able to find similar speakers, the only difference is that they are not painted. I am unclear as to whether or not this was originally painted or if it was painted later. The other speakers I have seen appear to be gold or bronze in color, although I am unclear whether or not it is paint. On mine, the women's bodies appear to have had a silverish paint, but much of it is chipped. The border around it may have been a white paint. The metal underneath is a dark, tarnished silver. The paint on the dresses is almost entirely in tact. The piece in the center and the sides are painted black. The back has the same fabric covering and metal center piece, but is otherwise plain.

    This is fantastic, I looked on line and have seen some, one thru live auction sold for 150 but I imagine they must be much higher. Also probably before the internet they must have gone for probably more than 500. I seen one guys on the internet with gold paint which may or probably was painted. Yours I am not sure about, it surely looks possible, and since I have never seen one of these radios, the only way to tell would be to take the girls off if that is possible and study the paint to see if it went along the sides also and looks original.
