Raymond Loewy for Westinghouse Columaire Skyscraper Grandmother Clock Radio
Item #3118 SOLD
Art Deco Design in 1931 by Raymond Loewy for RCA Westinghouse. Lowey one of the most prominent industrial designers of the 20th century. At the time, Westinghouse was the frontrunner for all of the copycat Skyscraper radios to follow. This statuesque and collectible piece features the warmth of a tube radio AND a clock. The tube radio and clock were recently restored along with the refinished cabinet. It is now ready for another 90-100 years of service. This is Art Deco History that is beautiful to gaze upon and only requires about one square foot of floor space! One of the best restorations I’ve seen on this model.
