Fada Model 1000 “Bullet” Coffee and Caramel Catalin Tube Radio

SKU#: HOB-548023

The Fada model 1000 Catalin "Bullet" tube AM radio ranks among the design icons of the 20th century reproduced several times during the 1970s, 1980s, and 2000s. The coffee and caramel catalin cabinet is referred to by collectors as the "Bullet" or occasionally the Streamliner. It epitomizes the 1940s Streamline design. Its sleek, rounded lines suggest speed and practicality, hallmarks of streamlined Industrial Design from this era. The Bullet's "airplane" dial is very attractive with moving lines molded into the gold background and a spare, modern font for the frequency markings. The letters F-A-D-A are the initials of Frank Angelo D'Andrea, who founded the company in the 1920s. Fada produced many radios and televisions over the years, but its Catalin radios, particularly the bullet are the best-known models. This Radio is currently on display at the California Heritage Museum in Santa Monica California for the "Collector's Choice - The Passion that is Collecting" exhibition. Please allow two weeks for delivery.
