Battery operated four-valve TRF receiver
Ebonite front and oak cabinet in art deco (Amsterdam School) style. The cabinet has a hinged lid and three black legs on both sides. A protruding drawer holds a complete set of coils and other material. The radio was made by a small semi-professional workshop, as can be seen by the materials used.
On the upper left a threefold coil base is visible. Below the coil base, two tuning knobs (the left one is used for antenna tuning), between the two knobs a switch that can be used for frequencies above 2000 meters. On the right three rheostats. Below the rheostats sockets for headset or loudspeaker(s). An on/off switch is situated above the middle rheostat. A cord set for the different voltages is situated at the back.
