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 33 was produced in black Redelec with contrasting green fret and feet.

The 2nd IF stage (valve 6B7) is reflexed as the 1st AF stage.

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.
