Thanks Ed. Yes, the dial is definitely classic '30's. I personally loved vintage tweed-n-stripes luggage from that time. Between these having that look and being a radio, it's a shoe-in for me that I collect them! Many of these cabinets were actually made by luggage companies. They're solid as a rock. With the fully enclosed cabinet (there's little to no heat with these) you get a beautiful tone from them too. Some sound every bit as good as a period 5-6 tube wooden tabletop set.
