4s 2d (excluding Purchase
Complementing the CN429 'Lady Margaret', CN435
'Lady Catherine', CN433 'Vanessa' and CN441 'Lady Elizabeth', this
would appear to be another suitcase mains/battery portable from Vidor
that exhibits unexciting design and unexciting performance. 'Suitcase'
is a good description - this set is unnecessarily bulky.
'Ann' was also available in a 'reverse'
colour scheme on the deck - dark red speaker grill on white/cream deck
(bottom) and is quite smart and seemingly more rare.
The lettering style used on the 'Ann'
controls has a 'Moderne' feel to it - hearkening back to the
'Streamlining' of the 1930's.
