A great deal of brilliant 20. Century electrical engineering came out of Germany, for better and for worse. One of the many things that are fascinating about this piece is the unceremonious cord-extension job, which all the more adds to its history as an actual war-used radio.Obviously, there was some point during its operation where the power source and the reception/transmission location were separated further than the manufactured cord allowed, and a quick fix-it job in the field took care of the problem. It measures 12 1/8" tall, 17 3/4" wide, and 7 1/4 deep. It has a black painted multi-panel hardwood construction, with mortised corner joints, and molded black Bakelite and metal fittings. Radio weighs approximately 18 pounds and 4 ounces. The knurled screw on the back/lower/right will only catch and help hold the backside together if you push a bit on the wood panel in the area while you screw it in. Please ask any and all questions.
