Default For Sale: Ekco A147 Festival

Having decided, in the interests of relative sanity, to set a termination date of 1949 to my collection of sets, and to concentrate on Bakelite cabinets, I've decided to sell my 1951 Ekco A147 set.

This is in good condition, the top of the cabinet having been refinished to a high standard. The replacement lettering isn't in the right font however. The urea formaldehyde grilles are in excellent condition. The station indicator lamps need to be aligned with the tuning. Otherwise untested.

I wish only to recoup what it cost me, so it's for sale for 45. I can take it along to Golborne on 3 November, if that's helpful. Otherwise, it's collection from Oswestry, Shropshire, please.

Am keen to liberate the space this is taking up (to be filled instead by a Bakelite set!)
Price thus reduced to 40.

Final day for any shouts for this set, ahead of Golborne, as need to sort out the logistics for the weekend, to include popping in to the northern swapmeet.

Will someone please buy this lonely wooden set, to create a space for a Bakelite Ekco cousin not so patiently waiting to take its space!

Regards.

One last effort to sell this, ahead of advertising it elsewhere. So, here's the pitch. In the interests of making space for other sets, queuing up for display, I'm going to include with the A147 Festival, already pictured, this Ekco U49 http://ymgw.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/bakelite-beast.html
for 45 for the pair.

Hello there. Sorry, but these two radios are now promised to Gwarpy.
