1930s Model 2028 Philips Bakelite Art Deco Loudspeaker
This is a very rare 1930s Model 2028 Philips Bakelite Art Deco Radio Loudspeaker.
It was made by Philips of Eindhoven, Netherlands and is a magnetic Radio loudspeaker made to accompany a Bakelite Art Deco radio e.g a Philips 720A: from the days when radios didn't have an internal loudspeaker.
Approximate Size (WHD): 34.5 x 38.0 x 14.5 cm
The loudspeaker is in original condition, has not been tested, and needs some restoration:-
- There is a crack in the Bakelite
- The back of the speaker needs repairing (NB: only 3 holes were used from new, the other 3 were surplus to requirements)
- The front loudspeaker cloth is fragile and is torn but could be easily replaced
- It needs rewiring
- There may be other issues which I've not yet found
With some care and attention, this loudspeaker would make a fantastic addition to a radio collection. The price has been adjusted to account for its condition.
