This is a French radio from the early to mid 1950s Some closer photos of the dial glass and the speaker would help in further ID

Hello Joaquim,

The answer given by Garret Walsh isn't incorrect - the cabinet form was in use between 1950 and 1952 roughly, some models had it later even. The style of the dial scale puts this radio in the first half of the 1950s.

Unfortunately however, the speaker doesn't give any clues (it's a Vega chassis) and the dial scale has no visible markings either. Invisible markings - i.e. hidden under the frame - will most likely not help any further.

France had a big market for small set makers, and a plethora of companies offering construction sets, pieces, cabinets, and complete non-branded receivers. Your chances are, therefore, slim. You could take a look at the part of the dial that is covered by the cabinet, but as I already said, chances are this will not help.

Sorry to be the bringer of bad news.
Best regards,
Mark

Hello Mark,   Thanks for your information. I had forgotten about the printing on the hidden part of the dial glass. That is how I was able to identify a prewar French radio from early 1939 that I own. When I first got it I was puzzled about the use of some American made radio tubes that were used in the chassis. Since a lot of French radios of that era were confiscated by the Nazi regime at the beginning of WW2, I originally thought  my radio was rebuilt with parts from some American sets later during the war and used by the partisans. But no, it was a factory built radio and it had imported parts from the US. It is still fascinating however..
