A 54B5 “Solitaire” radio from 1947 with a fantastic swirled-pattern Catalin case. This deco-looking set is one of the smallest, iconic 4-tube portable radios ever made and was a beach favorite of Cary Grant (see photo). It is in working condition. The swirled-pattern Catalin cabinet, with no cracks, is in great shape as well as the rubber handle. An on-off switch is located under the top rubber handle. The radio operates from a single 1.5V “D” battery and a 67.5V battery. These batteries are still available. That said, It is currently being powered by A “D” flashlight cell and a battery pack made with 23AE batteries which are readily available and cheap on eBay etc. Similarly, common 9v cells can be used as well. A copy of the schematic is also included with the set. The radio will be well-packed and shipped/tracked via FedEx.
