Handmade radios as objets d’art

Mister Jalopy hipped us to these amazing handmade radios from Tom Kipgen. The triangular wonder above is called Radio Moscow (’cause the finned brass plate cap Tom fabbed reminded him of Russian onion domes).

As Mister J points out, for something this beautifully crafted, the asking price is a song. Wander the site for other amazing finds. Tom also sells custom made components and cabinets, if you care to roll a handmade radio of your own.
