Default Identifying this radio (Clago)

Hello people.

I am restoring this radio from the attached photos. I need help identifying the manufacturer and model. I inform you that it has the following valves 35, 35, 56, 80 and the outlet looks like a push pull with two valves 45.

I'm guessing its a kit set. The escutcheon has the logo of a sailing ship which, I think, was used by a manufacturer who made kits sets/spare parts.
A photograph of the chassis would be helpful. The cabinet also has a "home made" look to it which would suggest a kit set.

Looks very American in styling, and those are definitely US valve types.

The ship could be the Mayflower.

I think you're more likely yo get a positive ID on a US site but you never know

Cheers

A bit of a Wiz around T'net

Seems as if its from Clago Radio Corp.

https://antiqueradios.com/forums/vie...p?f=1&t=171100

Virtually nothing on Radiomuseum

So seems like quite a rare set.

And it seems the ship is indeed the Mayflower.

Cheers

This radio is really original, here in Brazil it is very rare to find one with all the valves of the 30's without modifications.
As requested follow photos of the chassis.

According to the attached photo, I found in the Mercado Libre in Argentina a radio with the same dial as the radio I am trying to identify.

Also in New Zealand according to the attached url, I found a radio with this dial frame.

https://www.vintageradio.co.nz/model/ultimate/631

With these new references, it may be possible to identify my radio, because by the electronic valves it would be an American project, but it is being found in Brazil, Argentina and New Zealand.
