Dear Mario
With no more information this is quite impossible to find out.

It seems to be a clock radio for reception of broadcast and short waves. Can you name the tubes? That would helpt to know the manufacturing period. Is there anything useful on the chassis like a number or name? No brand visible?

Such kind of radio was made in a variety of more than 10 000. Only if it is really a clock radio would limite this number very much. It is very cute anyway.

Dear Mario,

as far as I can get from the label it was made by a subsidary of General Electric Company or Westinghouse. I suggest visiting US collectors sites. I just scanned a few and I guess there will be at least one collector able to give you support in this matter. Use a search engine with keywords "Westinghouse, radio, general, electric, bakelite, tube, aircraft".

Good luck.

Dear Ernst,

Thank you for your answer.

The tubes are: 6D6; 6C6; 25L6G and 25Z5.

It has also a ballast L49C.

I tried, in Radiomuseum front page,to find out the model using the tube references.It didn't work.

Best regards

Mário Coelho
