Sparton Model 566 “Bluebird”

02 Dec

Designed by the “Dean of Industrial Design” Walter Dorwin Teague, the Sparton Model 566 “Bluebird” radio has become a highly coveted item among both Art Deco and antique radio collectors.  The glass mirror
item was one of a group of Sparton sets released in 1936, and is universally recognized as one of the true masterpieces of the 1930s Art
 Deco radio movement.  This radio was one of my father’s most prized possessions, and is being relocated to a good home where it will be treasured and appreciated — it recently sold on eBay for $3,800.
