Panasonic "cube", model R-47A radio Panasonic "cube", model R-47A radio Panasonic "cube", model R-47A radio

 

Vintage in a historical sense, this plastic transistor radio referred to as the Panasonic “cube”, model R-47A exhibits pure modern design and pays homage to Eero Saarinen by eliminating a “slum of legs” with a singular tulip pedestal. Manufactured in the 60s by Matsushita Electric Industrial Company, the cube measures approximately 4″ x 4″, 5.5″ tall; elevated on the iconic tulip base.

The plastic is a sophisticated matte finish, off white. The dial face is silver behind a clear eye. The graphics are mod, if not groovy, frequency numerals are in purple with a clear dial needle punctuated by an orange bubble design that can be seen through the edge of the clear plastic. The AM only frequency,volume, and on/off are controlled by two ridged silver dials on one side. The speaker is on the opposite side comprised minimally of perforations in the molded plastic. There is a jack for an earphone on the back.

Minimal in design, it has a few minimal nicks or scuffs among its simple angles, curves, and surfaces. These minor imperfections do not effect the significance of this iconic mid-century piece. Tested for full range of volume and frequency tuning, the radio requires a single 9 Volt battery (not included.)

As a design product, this Panasonic “cube” radio is a rare find in working condition exhibiting not only innovation and invention but featuring elements of other design disciplines of the 60s. This radio would be a treasured beginning or addition for someone interested in MCM design, a radio collector, a graphic artist, an industrial designer, a 60s music or record collector, …

Measurements: 5.5″ tall, 4″ wide, 4″ deep

This stunning Mid Century Modern design chandelier has a 3′ chromed chain and chromed canopy. It was produced in the 60s by Robert Long Ltd. in Sausalito, California. A small firm, Robert Long Ltd., existed between the 1960s through the 1980s. Typically, their designs were minimalist, architectural, simple. Specified for not only modern commercial offices, as well as stylish modern homes, the fixtures are considered to be of highest quality. This fixture with its highly reflective chrome (bumper quality) finish is wired to excite the visual senses. We acquired it from an office building owned by a friend which housed a design firm which was moving to bigger digs.

The chandelier is in excellent vintage condition features five tubular light cylinders each with one up lights and one down light, or 10 total lamps. We recommend reflector bulbs for the best effect, not included.
