Masterpiece Tramp Art Radio Cabinet with Carved Eagle in Flight

Sorry, this item from Clifford A. Wallach Tramp Art, Folk Art & Americana has been sold.

A true tramp art masterpiece this tramp art radio cabinet is completely scratch built. Dating to an era when people would sit and ‘watch’ the radio this artist was proud of his creation. Patriotically topped by an eagle in flight and with hand carved decorative pipes this radio boasts the ability to reach far away places such as Hong Kong, Ships at Sea, Police Broadcasts and just about every known outpost around the world. Unfortunately they probably listened to incomprehensible static. Illustrated twice in 'Tramp Art, Another Notch Folk Art from the Heart' on page 56 & on the inside flaps. The cabinet was also featured on a HGTV show and appeared in numerous articles.
