Yup, that’s the coolest thing I’ve seen all day. And I love the color choices, like French Green and Scotch Grey. Here’s a current photo of one of these De Luxe bakelite beauties on sale on eBay (clock works, radio doesn’t) for $40.

    That’s a nice clock. And it better be, considering its cost
    $49.95 in 1953 has the same buying power as $435.47 in 2013
