This General Electric is a generic clock radio that came in many cabinet styles. The glass or plastic cover on the clock was missing so to achieve the concave look it was replaced with a plastic cover cut out of a cheap transparent plastic ball used for decorations. At first glance, this radio would appear like a wooden set with a light colored finish or a "photo finish," but it really is a plastic radio painted with a wood grain pattern. The radio only needed a new set of filter capacitors and a tube.
