HMV 507RG 'AVON' (1951)

The HMV 507RG was manufactured for His Master's Voice (New Zealand) Ltd by Various in 1951.

1951 Radiogram version of the 507D Wembley.  Dual-wave 6-valve + magic eye tuning.

Note the photos are of the Avon, but its been very nicely cut down to be a mantle radio - this was quite common in (relatively) recent years to give radiograms new life in smaller homes, or even just to fix a borer problem.
