    I have this tall clock - radio combination by Marconi. I have no idea of the year of manufacture or any relevant history. If anyone can shed some light on this piece of antiquity I would appreciate it.

      Lot of the Philips ones are online with date of 31, not sure of this date, but coincides with pics online.

      It looks like someone had taken a Marconi model 84 or 85 radio ; then chopped it down and installed it in this cabinet, as the two kinds of wood do not match. If you google Marconi model 85 you will see the same radio dial.
      Although I don't ever recall seeing a tombstone model 85.
      They may have take the model 85 and put it in a different cabinet and then installed it in the cabinet you have

      I did some research on your is a Marconi model 81.
      Someone has cut it up so it would fit in that cabinet.
