Return to The Portable Collection
|This is a rock solid, superbly
made set for its time. Its design is orthodox yet
Ferranti made a mains/battery version of this set, the Model 915, in July 1951 featuring a SenTerCel RM2 metal rectifier.
Both versions feature external earth and aerial sockets - the first time I have seen such a feature on a suitcase-style battery portable. Another notable feature is the use of chromed push buttons on the front face to release the lid catches - a nice touch!
