This set is missing its plastic trim aroumd the speaker grille (a white plastic affair that made an attempt to add a 'moderne' aka 'art deco' touch to the set).

This set has also been spotted wearing US equivalent valves (1R5, 1T4, 1S5 and 3S4) which may have been due to scarcity of the British version at the time of manufacture. The radio itself is the usual solid wooden box with coil aerial, large speaker and tons of room for the huge dual-voltage battery.
