We can’t vouch for the latter, but according to the seller’s listing, this particular radiogram, its radio and its internal turntable are in ‘excellent condition’ and ‘full working order’. A new plug too, which is a plus from a safety point of view.
As for the looks, well that’s down to the dark walnut veneer and tapered legs.
A focal point for sure and a great addition to any midcentury-inspired room. The price right now is £145.
