This bakelite Philips radio in deep brown was made in Holland. Manufactured in the 1940s under the serial number BZ388U, this intriguing collectible has been restored to working order.
The legendary Philips Company was founded in 1891 by Gerard Philips and his father Frederik Philips. Frederik, a banker based in Zaltbommel, financed the purchase and setup of an empty factory building in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Here, the company started the production of carbon-filament lamps and other electrotechnical
products in 1892. With the inaugural production of carbon-filament lamps in 1892, Philips expanded into producing its iconic radios in 1927. Their first factory has now been adapted as a museum.
