A collection of radios

Recently I ventured into our local antique/home clearance shop.

The most interesting radio I saw in there was this Czechoslovakian bakelite radio set!

This beauty is on sale for the asking price of £120

This is what http://www.radio-workshop.co.uk/tesla-talisman.shtml has to say about it.  Interesting because they also include a link to a pdf file about the radio with circuit diagrams etc!

These radios were made in Chekslovakia by Philips. Although they are nothing special, the Bullet-shaped Bakelite case has made them very popular amongst collectors.

The spelling error above is on the site!

Here are the other radios I saw

The Bush Radio is obviously a facsimile of the Bush Radio.

The item above may be like the device our Headmaster used to route radio programmes into our classroom via a Loudspeaker system, not sure though!

Not sure that the Bush Radio above is worth £22?
