I have an old...

I have an old "Chicago vintage AM-FM-SW Record player" from either 40's or 50's era, it has a shiny material maybe laminate. it has a front pull down door with storage on the left side and record player on the right side. The unit needs some work about 50% cosmetically and I'm sure 100% electronically. I was wondering if it had any value, before I have it worked on and updated. which way to go.

Hi,

Thank you for the images and for your patience.

This is a German Blaupunkt radio and record player console in their Chicago Model. This actually is done in what is referred to as an 'Eames' era design which dates to the late 1950s - early 1960s.

In fine working condition these sell for $400 - $500 on today's auction market.
