Ivory Plaskon. "Junior". AM/SW. Stamped into chassis: MADE IN U.S.A. RMA 264. Tubes: 12SA7GT, 12SK7GT, 12SQ7GT, 50L6GT, 35Z5GT. 4 piece cabinet. May be model T504.
This cabinet was designed by Jan Streng for the Clinton Manufacturing Company, Inc. and was available in Beetle plastic.
In Communications magazine, April 1938, Page 1, The caption of a picture in a Bakelite Corporation ad of a Clinton radio with this cabinet says:
"1938 Clinton Radio styles with lustrous black Bakelite Molded cabinet. Molded for Clinton Mfg. Co. by Associated Attleboro Mfrs., Inc."
The Cabinet is very similar to 1938 Clinton models 57PG, 58PG, and 59PG. There may have been a wooden version made that resembles the T601 Pilotuner.
