This little bakelite radio was cheap, and quite popular around 1950. They are still found a lot, I would almost say that it is one of the most common bakelite radios found on flea markets. The radio was sold in various different colors: unpainted, but also spraypainted in various colors.
Here is a picture from a Philips advertisement flyer of 1950, showing the radio in gray.The price quoted in the flyer is 160 guilders. The flyers advocates the very good sound quality of the set. Indeed, the sound can be considered quite good compared to many other radios of that era and that size.
