An icon! The Philips 834A (nicknamed ‘Easter egg’ because of the shape), pre-war. Very nice optical condition considering the nearly 100 years of age. Bakelite is great, the round cabinet is beautiful on one side in terms of condition, the other side has a few stripes. This is by no means bothersome. Overall, the colours of the round sides are truly beautiful. The lighting works, see photos, which are part of the description. Copper tube protectors!
I cannot receive stations, but I do get audible frequency differences.
All in all an icon and a beautiful piece of history.
The front of the radio is of bakelite (Philite), the sides of flamed arbolite and has a wooden plinth.
There is an additional loudspeaker connection (highly resistive) and a connection for a Gramophone.
To switch to the gramophone display the plug needs to be switched
The control takes place by the two buttons on the front.
The left button is the on/off switch with volume control.
On the right is the tuning button. By pulling this the LG is enabled.
Size: 40 cm./deep 23 cm. wide and 45 cm high.
