eBay watch: 1960s Brionvega FD 1102 chrome radio

Brion

The seller doesn't give much away in his description, so let us tell you that this is a 1960s Brionvega FD 1102 chrome radio.

As stylish as they come, it was designed by Marco Zanusso and Richard Sapper in 1969, with this particular model described as being in 'mint condition' and according to the seller, has probably never been used. It's sold as 'untested', so we don't know if those presets and volume controls on this chrome-clad radio work – if it's 'as new', we would presume so, but it's a shame the seller couldn't just turn it on before pitching it on eBay.

With a volatage adjuster included so it will function in the UK, Europe and USA, it's a steal right now at just £1 – especially for a radio that's long been out of production.

Update: See comments for more on this.

    It’s a cable tuner, not a radio, designed to receive the six “Filodiffusione” channels broadcast in Italy by RAI over the telephone cable network. It certainly won’t work in the UK, and anyway it’s not a radio or an FM tuner despite what the seller claims.
