Country Belle old telephone tube radio made in the 50's by Guild radio and television. This is the popular Model 556. This hung on the grandparents wall in Ohio for many years.

This plays AM radio and is in good working condition. Quite a few stations come in clearly with no 'buzzing'. Has all the attachments -- solid brass bells, mouth piece, crank, and ear piece. Original sticker on front "Solid Brass".

The cabinet is made of solid pine with an Early American lacquer finish. Above the mouthpiece are stenciled in gold the words "The Country Belle by Guild." Brass is used for the bells and other shiny hardware. The earpiece and mouthpiece are made of cast pot metal painted with black lacquer. The controls are cleverly integrated into the telephone design. To turn on the radio, you lift the earpiece from its brass hanger. To tune it, you turn the crank on the side. The dial can be seen through a small opening above the crank.

Next to the dial are two small wooden knobs for the volume and tone. The speaker is mounted on the cabinet bottom, facing downward. The bells and mouthpiece are strictly for decoration, although the mouthpiece can be swiveled up and down, just as on a real vintage telephone.

The radio inside the cabinet is a simple five-tube superheterodyne with miniature tubes and a ferrite loop antenna.

Mounting hardware on back for hanging on the wall. Measures approximately 19" high by 9" wide, by 11" deep.

Has small crack in wood on top, not visible when hung on the wall. The left bell is also dented slightly. See last two pictures above.
