Morning becomes eclectic with your very own knight radio.
As you know, goslings, I rarely go in for novelty objects. But as you also know, I am a sucker for for anything that masquerades as something else. Especially if it does a good job of it. And this radio sure does. Pewter-plated metal on a plastic base. I'd say circa 1965-67 as part of that pseudo-Spanish design trend.
The ebayer says it works. I guess the metal grill acts as a speaker.
It also looks heavy, like you could really brain someone with it. A knight's helmet that is also a radio and a home security device. That's a tchotchke that seriously earns its keep.
