The Philco Radio was produced as the 'Peoples Set' in anticipation of the second World War. A stylish and streamlined design of 1936, it is evocative of the German Volksenfanger, which is highly functional and somewhat utilitarian in shape. In fact the later wooden BBC Utility sets were the same boxey shapes. This has all the components but needing attention to work or could be simply adapted to Bluetooth.

I am an artist, sculptor, collector and restorer.  I have always been inspired and influenced by my love of the old. Since collecting tins, postcards, early textiles and gadgets as a teenager I have surrounded myself with “stuff”. I started trading in the 1970s from my architectural effects shop Leaded Lights and design shop Gothic in Greenwich. My stock reflects my enjoyment of the antique and the peculiar, from early Medieval to Victorian to Art Deco and industrial design.

I endeavour to hunt out the unusual - richly patinated wood, faded sun-drenched   paintwork and gently burnished ironwork.

We are based in a Victorian Gothic building in Somerset, only 15 minutes from the M5.
