This vintage tabletop clock/radio manufactured by Zenith in 1953 is a beautiful addition for anyone looking for a unique piece of mid-century America. I plugged it in and in a minute or so the tubes heated up and the radio came to life. The clock hands move, the front setting adjustments work, and the all adjustment knobs are in place. The Gumby Green Bakelite cabinet looks new.
There are no cracks, chips or major scratches. The cabinet feet on the bottom show normal paint wear from sitting on a surface. Everything works great except the clock adjustment stem on the back. It seems to be locked.
While it should be a straight forward repair, I do not have the confidence to access the gearing. It looks great sitting on the bookshelf.There are very few signs of aging and it looks new! Please see pictures for a better description.
