Default Re: Green Ekco AD65

Absolutely, Stevehertz. That there are extant so very few genuine colour Ekcos makes your point. Hence my long-term quizzicality in relation to claims of discovery of such sets, which are made now and then.
Regards,
Richard

Located another photo of an Ekco radio show stand, illustrating variant colour options.

On the left, an AC77 in black and ivory. Right of that, an apparently all-ivory set, possibly an AC77 but not certain. Next right, a black and ivory AD37. Extreme right, a black and ivory AC97 'Robot.'

Note also the real life bellboys, based on Ekco's point of sale material.

Regards,
Richard

Re. the apparently all-ivory AC77.

I now know that this is, in fact, the Belgian version of the AW87, of 1936, which version was only available in all-ivory. There are images of an example of this set on the front and back covers of the BVWS Bulletin, Summer 1998, Vol. 23, No.2.

The Ekco display was in Brussels, 1936.

Regards,
Richard
