A truly beautiful 2-band LW/MW coatpocket radio with a pale green cabinet (gray back half) and a large gold reverse painted dial area with black lettering and markings. A vernier tuning capacitor allows here for smooth and careful tuning.
Like many European MW/LW radios, this set's MW band is calibrated in meters and the LW band displays by name the most common LW broadcasters of the time. Radios made in France designated their bands as "PO" (Petites ondes) and "GO" (Grandes ondes), "PO" being MW, and "GO" LW. The band-change switch is on the cabinet's top, visible in the second photo below.
