Deleted smart alec comment. I don't exactly like the look of this set but I also don't like badmouthing fellow ARF'ers stuff.

What an ugly restoration. Frank's work speaks for itself!

I'm the seller. Here is the restoration thread:
http://antiqueradios.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=325393

Rima painted it and it is meant for the feminine types in the general population. It would be a great St. Valentine's Day gift. They should have sold it with colorful flowers. Who ever heard of brown flowers?

The Renegade speaker does indeed sound nice. Come over to hear it if you'd like.

It should appeal to many people, just not radio purists.

Stephen, if I may suggest, you might add this pic from your restoration thread to your auction . It makes the set look like it fits into the home;

Yup, and I'll go first.

This radio is NOT restored. It may be repaired, playing well, safe to operate and ready for daily use, but .... it is NOT restored.

What would Mr Crosley say...

Brown is a natural color that evokes a sense of strength and reliability. It's often seen as solid, much like the earth, and it's a color often associated with resilience, dependability, security, and safety.

I was wondering if you guys would notice it.... I've got two others listed as an experiment. It is probably not the right time of year, unless people are buying gifts for St. Valentine's Day.

Restored to working, enjoyable condition. John was nice enough to give it to us, but it had a bad speaker, bad output transformer, rusty chassis and missing speaker grille part. However, it turned out to be an interesting project. I like it, but then I like most of our radios, and we have too many, so it would be nice to see somebody, perhaps somebody with no old radios, enjoy it.

Stephen's interpretation of the term seems to be that the set has been worked on in order to make it practical for use, and eye-appealing. For the general public that's probably valid.

Your's of course is the technical meaning as used on this board. It would be a narrower definition.
