This is an ultra-rare 1938 Airite model 3010 "Desk Set" in brown Bakelite. The cabinet is a classic statement in Art Deco design. It is fair to say that most serious antique radio collectors have never even seen this illusive model in person. Beyond its rarity, it is a highly desirable radio because of its icon art deco cabinet styling. You have surely seen this radio on the cover of a number of Bakelite radio reference sources. The Bakelite cabinet is in amazing condition with no cracks, chips, hairlines, repairs or other defects.
