    1939 World's Fair RCA Radio. This fantastic souvenir was released as a promotion for RCA's television debut at the 1939-40 New York World's Fair. The radio cabinet's front, made of molded imitation wood, prominently displays the fair's Trylon and Perisphere trademarks. To the far right, near the tuning dial, is a supplementary rendering of RCA's exhibition building. A very attractive antique radio associated with a specific historic event. A small area of loss on the dial's RCA logo, else beautiful condition. Complete with original cord and electrical plug. 9.25" wide x 7.25" high x 6" deep. One of the best 1939 Fair collectibles.
