455  "The Radio"

This model, one of the most popular designs, is of cast metal, developed in Verde Antique.  Its beautiful lines and finish are on par with its unfailing accuracy.  Stands 6 7/8 inches high, 8 inches wide and 4 1/8 inches deep.

Yes, it looks like the 402 to me too.

Here's mine; a $5 flea market find.  It's correct except for the bezel which should also be "verde antique", not brass.  To see how it looked when I got it, click HERE.


Detail from a 1927 Nebraska Power Co. ad.  This would explain seeing the Radio in orange, grey or periwinkle.
