Here is a black Zenith Royal 16 in new condition. I find no signs of use on this gem and when tested, it played to my satisfaction on 2 AA batteries.* It measures 5.5” tall and features a clam shell case that will play when closed while protecting the volume and station settings.
This example is the desirable one from the original run that was made in Japan before production shifted to Hong Kong. It is in unused condition. If you like plenty of shine and a perfect grill, this one is for you.

*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.
