A radio for every room˝ was the slogan of American radio manufacturers between the late twenties and early forties, an age when table radios not only connected Americans to the world, but also became objects of beauty in their own right.
Table radios were among the first consumer goods to be made of plastic, a material that lent itself to flamboyant experiments in mass production and innovative design.
Radios: The Golden Age presents a dazzling collection of vintage radios, artifacts of a golden era of product design that was marked by unparalleled creativity and ingenuity.
Full-color photographs depict every detail of these classic radios, from a ˝Smokerette˝ with a built-in pipe rack, to a round Trophy baseball radio, to a model featuring cowboy star Hopalong Cassidy galloping across the dial.
This delightful volume will enchant collectors and nostalgia buffs alike and will serve as a valuable resource for those interested in creative product design.
