Philips 745A

 This set is in superb condition and looks as if it had just been unpacked for the first time. The dial on the top can be pushed down flat, which no doubt gave the mechanical designer a few headaches in 1935 when he was pesented with the problem. The set sold for nearly £13 plus purchase tax in 1936 (like VAT, but probably 22.5%). The walnut finish is gleaming and I must peek inside and see if it's completely original with 68-year old dust.
