Rare Black Zenith Royal 700 Portable – 1957


Out of stock


Offered here is a nice early leather portable from 1957 – the Zenith Royal 700.  It measures 6.5″ wide and 4″ tall.  It operates on 6 C batteries and when tested played to my satisfaction*.

The interesting thing about this example is that the leather cover is black, when all advertising media never mention there being a black option (this is only  the 3rd example of a Royal 700 in black that I have ever heard of).  All others are a light tan in color.  The leather of this radio has survived in great condition.  All original.  If interested and would like to see more pictures, let me know.

*In order to play to my satisfaction, a radio needs to pull AM stations across the dial. The radio also needs to play with strong volume and clear tone and be a pleasure to listen to. The high standards I use to rate a radio’s performance assures that it will please you too.
