DeWald Model A501


This radio is a DeWald model A501 from 1946, known as the "Harp". The catalin case is in excellent condition with only two 2 inch stabilized hairline cracks on the bottom coming from the screw holes. The case has been polished to remove years of oxidation and to restore the original color, but the knobs retain the aged color. The Dial scale and grill cloth are reproductions. This radio has been electronically restored to working condition. All repairs have been done using vintage parts, by hiding modern parts inside the shells of the originals, or by using reproduction parts, thereby preserving the under-the-chassis appearance as well as the outward look.
