Rare Ekco radio - AD75

Very rare and unusual Ekco AD75 radio receiver from the 1930s.

Design was originlly created by the architect Wells Coates - also an extraordinarily talented industrial designer.

The early AD65 was a ground-breaking radio apprearing in 1934, when radios and gramophones were considered as furniture items - generally hand-made, large, and 'box-like'.

The electronics maker E K Cole (EKCO), of Southend-on-Sea changed all that. Together with Coates they employed the efficiencies of mass production similar to those used in the car industry - along with applying modern (for the time) materials. The result was a great-looking product that was relatively inexpensive to make.

In 1939, the improved AD75 model followed the AD65.

The round-bodied AD series of radios are now icons of design, and extremely collectable.

Can be delivered to anywhere in mainland UK at extra cost - please enquire.
