The Pepsi bottle tube radio was made during the 1940's and the earliest versions were first available around 1940. It's 24" tall, made of Bakelite, featuring the "All American Five" tube line-up". The cap serves as the station dial and tuning knob. Volume control on/off switch is at the bottom right side, speaker faces down from the inside bottom. You can distinguish the early and late versions by the tubes used, the late versions used miniature tubes, the early versions had octal based tubes.

VINYL  DECAL  SET  AVAILABLE  AGAIN

After much effort and expense trying all the water-slide decal material I could find on the 'net, I've given up on providing a quality water-slide decals. I have found a very good source for thin membrane vinyl that I've found to be quite satisfactory.

Now you have your choice, aged look or like new (same price). Enlarge both samples to compare.
