Default Re: Nice 1930s Pye spotted in Oxford's Gloucester Green Market, 50

Fair enough, Paul. The top certainly needed re-finishing and the speaker cloth had a lot of small holes, but the rest seemed reasonable to me. Perfectly restorable by people like us.

I would say it looked smarter than most of these Pyes I've seen for sale, but maybe I'm just used to being offered very ragged sets?

Bearing in mind that this is the kind of place where they ask 50 for an unexciting 1950s set in very average condition, and that the empty cabinets of these Pyes sell for more than this on eBay, I still feel this is a very good deal.

Nick.
