AWA produced a series of Bakelite, Fret and Foot radios in 1936 and 1937.

Radiolette models R33, R33A, R35, R35A, R38A, R38B, R38C, R39A, R39B, R39C, R40A, R40B and R40C.

The Model 40A was produced in Walnut Redelec with contrasting grained Ivory fret and feet.

Same chassis as the Bandmaster model 547DD

Fret and Foot was not the official AWA name for the classic Fisk Tombstone Radiolette but they are unique with a cabinet of a square block of Bakelite along Art Deco lines with curved edges which are complemented by a contrasting colour, Asian influenced speaker grill fret and Lion’s paws as feet.

The unique design is a tribute to the Bakelite designer’s art of the era which made them very appealing to worldwide collectors

They are now known colloquially as the AWA Radiolette, Fret and Foot series of radios
