FADA “Bullet” Model 1000 made of Catalin in a lemony yellow with bright red marbleized trim. This radio styling epitomizes 1940s Streamline design. Its sleek, rounded lines suggest speed and practicality, hallmarks of streamlined industrial design from those years. The letters making up the company name F-A-D-A on the beautiful golden Gemloid dial face are the initials of Frank Angelo D'Andrea, who founded the company in the 1920s. FADA produced many radios and televisions over the years, but its Catalin radios, particularly the “Bullet” are the best-known models.
