Object statement
Radio receiver, mantle radio, Bakelite / glass / metal electronic components, maker unknown for Anthony Hordern & Sons Ltd, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, c 1947
This radio is rebadged. Rebadging is the practice of two parties, in this case a manufacturer and a retail distributor, pooling resources to produce a product. The radio is badged with the retailer's name 'Anthony Hordern & Sons Ltd'. This retailer operated emporiums in the Sydney central business district from the turn of the century until the late 1960s.
The radio was designed and manufactured for Anthony Hordern & Sons Ltd. Manufacturer unknown.
Anthony Hordern & Sons Ltd was registered in New South Wales in 1926. The company was taken over by Waltons Ltd. in late 1969.

This radio was collected between 1940 and the late 1960s when the donor was an active radio electronic engineer operating a business from home building and repairing radios. The donor accumulated a collection of radios, valves, radio journals and assorted electrical engineering material over a lifetime.
