General Television and Radio Corp of Chicago made this marvelous tabletop radio, known as Model 5A5. The cabinet is made of Bakelite, with beautifully contrasting ivory-covered top handle, grill, knobs, and face frame. The gold face features a stunning textural deco pattern, with a red plastic Saturn shaped station indicator, beneath which "General Television" appears.
