eBay watch: 1950s Hans Gugelot-designed Braun G11 valve radio

Braun

Not just a cool piece of midcentury design, this Hans Gugelot-designed Braun G11 valve radio is still in working order as a radio too.

Best known for his work with Dieter Rams, this 'solo' design from Gugelot offers up LW, MW and FM reception, maple veneers, a contrasting white face for the controls and a set of vintage valves within for a rich, warm sound.

As we mentioned earlier, it's offered in full working order, with the veneers in 'fair' condition, with some minor damage and marking – see the close-up shots on the sales page for more on that. But lt.'s be honest – this is well over 50 years old, so hardly surprising. A rare design, with the bidding price right now at £21.

eBay watch: Dieter Rams-designed Braun RT20 radio

Braun

We might have featured one of these before. If you missed that – or have never seen one before – this Braun RT20 radio is a very cool (and practical) thing to have around the house.

The work of Dieter Rams and Hans Gugelot around 1961, it still has a very contemporary edge to it, thanks to that non-nonsense modernist design. It picks up LW, MW and FM signals, with audio via that large built-in speaker.

There's some wear to the wooden and metal casing, but there doesn't look a lot, judging by the large number of images on the site. 64p is the current price, so cheap it's unheard of.
