This must be from the time before Philips bought Magnavox. Do you know where it was made? The craftsmanship is evident from the photos.

By the way, there's a small statue of a horn-style loudspeaker in downtown Napa, California, next to the site where the Magnavox company was founded in the 1910s.

I have good Magnavox portable radios from both before and after the Philips acquisition; but they don't seem to have been consistent (i.e., they made some dogs, too). I'll keep an eye out for this one.

There is currently one available on eBay.

Condition is pretty rough. Not sure it's worth the asking price in that shape.

@Rehtakul -- looks like it's been up since February. I agree, $38 for that radio in that condition is not something I'd be willing to pay.
