This site is dedicated to the exotic and beautiful table radios made from colored Plaskon and Beetled Plaskon (Urea Formaldehyde). These particular sets were made from about 1932 until the late 1940's. In most cases they are much more rare than their high-end Catalin radio cousins. Colored plaskons were produced in small quantities, and today are extremely difficult to find. When they do become available for sale, most have at least some flaws, notably stress cracks, chipping, or warping, as the material was not particularly strong or durable. They were easily damaged by heat, light, or just by being mishandled.
