Vintage All Plaskon Baby Addison Radio. Near Mint, Working. Not Bakelite
For Sale is an early 1940's all Plaskon 5 tube Addison model 2 radio know as the "Baby Addison". This model was manufactured in Canada in Catalin, Plaskon and any # of combinations of the two plastics. This original Plaskon cabinet is a highly marbled Olive color, with dark and light brown swirls, that I've heard referred to as a peanut butter color. I've also heard this was an "end of day" color.
I believe it is unusual and just one of the 30+ color combinations Addison produced. The original Plaskon waterfall trim and bumpers are a slightly darker swirled olive color. The original cabinet and trim are damage-free; no chips, cracks, hairlines or tube burns.
The cabinet, trim and knobs have a lovely, shiny patina. The original dial face perfectly matches the cabinet color and is in great condition.
