From the early 1920s to the late 1950s, the ‘golden age’ of radio, the airwaves were filled with music, comedy and news reports, and a valve radio sat in almost every home. Many were produced in colourful ‘Bakelite’ cases by popular makers like FADA, Emerson, EKCO (E. K. Cole) and Philips. These are now very collectable, with values ranging from as little as £30 ($50) for a 1950s mottled brown Bakelite Bush DAC90 to over £29,000 ($51,000) for a possibly unique blue bakelite Air King ‘Skyscraper’.
The most desirable pieces are Art Deco in style, or what is known as Industrial or Streamlined in style. Brightly coloured cases, such as cherry red, blue or green, are also very sought after.
