AC Cossor occasionally broke ranks at seemingly inopportune moments to produce some very likeable designs for their portable sets - this is an early example of the rather fetching designs they were capable of. The front and rear panels are cream-painted metal whilst the top, base and sides are bakelite. The side panels also feature a 'skyscraper' type 'Moderne' motif.
This is a nice heavy set with an unusual power arrangement. Plugging in the mains power lead on the rear depressed a plunger and changed over the power selector switches.
