Original Roberts RIC2 transistor radio in black leatherette and teak wood.
English vintage 1971-1974. Faulty- partially working, hence low price

This lovely vintage radio was made between 1971 and 1974 by the famous English radio company Roberts, who hold the British Royal Warrant. Roberts radios are very popular with collectors and enthusiasts.

This radio is only partially working and would make an ideal project for an enthusiast, as decorative display or as a prop for theatre, film or photography.

Fault: the radio powers up and tunes in to some stations but the volume is very low even when turned all the way up.

* The case is made from real teak wood and covered in black leather

* The radio case is nice and clean. The leatherette is in top condition with no rips or tears and the teak sides are also in top condition with no scratches or chips

* The leather handle is fully intact with no cracks or loose stitching (quite rare with radios of this age)

* The original dials are all present and clean

* The left and right sides of the front grill are somewhat worn, as can be seen in the photographs

* The spinning turntable on the base of the radio is missing but this does not effect its operation or its looks

* MW and LW

* Runs on a 9v PP9 battery (not supplied, but they are easy to get hold of and last a long time).

Measurements: 10 inches wide x 5.5 inches tall (not including dials or handle) x 3.25 inches (approx). The radio tapers slightly and is wider at the base (from front to back, not width).
