    This was made by the Standard Radio Corp. They were a Japanese company that opened their doors in 1953 and were bought out by Marantz in 1973. This little radio belongs to a line of radios they called the "Micronic Ruby" line. Here's a link to further info on your model: http://antiqueradio.org/ruby01.htm
