Tuesday Treasure | December 7, 2010

This is a 1954 Motorola 53h tabletop radio. It’s made of black Bakelite plastic. The radio has five tubes and an AM band. It’s style is of the industrial jet age design look of the day.

I’m fortunate to have inherited this radio from my Grandpa and Grandma Hau. I can just imagine them listening to it in their Fond du Lac, Wisconsin home – whether it was music, Packers football or Milwaukee Braves baseball games. The radio still works, and the reception is better than in most modern AM radios!
