Jewel Tube Radio


A new exciting find, and it survived the last 80 or so years with out breaking as it is made of an early form of plastic. Wrap around asymmetric grill and curvilinear form, an iconic beauty from the tube radio era for sure!

Update information about the radio:

Viz radios were made by the Molded Insulation Company, of Philadelphia circa 1947.  They appear to have used only one cabinet style, but they were made in a bewildering array of marbleized colors, some quite bizarre, as well as solid white and red, and usually with knobs in contrasting colors. Source: (
