    I was watching I love Lucy, and there's an episode (Lucy Raises Chickens) where I noticed this radio cabinet on the counter behind her. I love this radio cabinet. I've never seen one in person. Anyone have one? I wonder how hard they are to find.

    If you have any great or favorite vintage kitchen items, I'd love to see a thread of them. :)

    That's a Guild "Spice Chest" radio -- Guild made all sorts of novelty-type cabinets in the 40s and 50s, usually with simple five-tube AC-DC radios in them.


    This model turns up with both the louvered doors seen here and solid doors, but it's the same radio in either style.

    I've got a simple Emerson in my kitchen --


    (Mine is nowhere near as clean as this -- it's got a nice layer of cooking grease protecting the cabinet finish and the dial lens.)
