I'm amazed back in the day how much though went into making things to make them look like they belong. Console stereos that looked like furniture TV too.Now a days black, silver just does seem to fit into any decor, unless you live in a space ship.

It an 8 tube superhet AM/FM radio in a wood case that runs on 115 VAC so it's a much better radio than the early All American 5 series. I'd put this into the 50's novelty radio category, but I may be wrong on that.
