Vintage 1940 ZENITH Wave Magnet Portable Radio Model 5G500 Long Distance. This beauty is from 1941. This nice portable has that nice brown leatherette fabric on it that really gives it that Casablanca look.
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.
