ZENITH Universal radio with Wave Magnet, model 5G500. This beauty is from 1941.
This nice portable has that nice brown leatherette fabric on it that really gives it that Casablanca look. You can almost imagine Humprey Bogart leaning over with his ear by the speaker.The wavemagnet is actually an antenna that is removed from the back of the radio when needed. About all this radio needs to make it complete is a new leather carrying handle. The wavemagnet has suction cups (worn) mounted on the left side so you could stick it to your hotel window.
That flat cable is the antenna lead that feeds back to the radio.
