This is a beautiful circa 1950 Motorola Painted Bakelite 2 Dial Clock Radio Tube type #5C. It also has an alarm and the coolest part is there is a way to set it for bed time. It actually says “Bed Time" on the lower part of the clock dial with its own separate dial for setting your bed time. I suppose the radio would turn off at that point? Not sure? It measures 11 inches across and 5 and 1/2 inches tall. The dark green paint over the Bakelite is still in very good condition. All the knobs are still attached. There are no chips or cracks. The original squiggly Motorola emblem is still intact. I cannot test the radio because the wiring is very unsafe. I would advice this as a show piece or if you want to use it you should get it rewired. As nice as the outside has held up with all original parts there, my money would be on it actually working. Now what stations you could pick up...I'm not sure. I just love the look of this radio and it is in such nice shape. This would be a lovely addition to your vintage radio collection or to your mid century home. Or you could use this to add the perfect conversation piece to any area of your home. I will ship internationally but please message me first so I can get an accurate shipping quote for you. If you have any further questions please feel free to ask. Thank You!
