Dear Australian radio collectors,

on the enclosed pics you will see my emigrated great-uncle Mr. Egon Herndl in approximately 1960 in Melbourne - Australia († 1960).

It seems that he used two radios. A Kriesler Radio/Phono combination as well as an unknown portable style radio.

Hi Wolfgang

This looks like a very sad story.

Did you ever receive any help with identifying the radio?

The portable radio looks like a Philips

Hello Wolfgang,
This appears to be a Kriesler 'Carry-Gram' model 11-75.  Model info can be found on RM here

Hope this is what you were looking for.  I'll see if I can ID the portable radio for you with further investigation.

best regards,
Wim Perl
