Defiant Radio Console Receiver MSH549C



Very Vintage Radio and Record Player

This was my Nan and Granddad's - Defiant MSH549C Radio and Record Player. Nan passed away nearly 30 years ago so it has been sitting doing nothing for a while now.

I have yet to find another - they were made for the Co-op way back when - there is plenty of info for them on the internet.  I can remember it working when I was very very young but as you can see from the fact it still has a cotton wrapped wire and bakerlite plug it hasn't worked for a while now.  I was going to have it fixed but the person let me down - i.e didn't bother turning up!!! So it is a project or should I say a labour of love for someone. I can safely say it hasn't been PAT tested!

Please take a good look at the pictures as they form part of the description, and bear in mind that it is second hand so will not be perfect! If you have any questions, like to see more photos or come and see it, then please don't hesitate to get in touch. 

Waldron & Plotkin Collectables

Born from the vision of two people, two worlds, two cultures in the 1950s, so I am taking their vision and running with it. I have this website so thought 'why not?'

Antique, Old, Traditional, Aged, Vintage, Dated, Period, Historical, Retro, Pre-loved - they are all words to describe what?  Nowadays too many items are defined as something they're not, so as we were told if you find something you like or mayhap even love, then buy it.  Your choice - it's too late when they’re gone.

Please browse this part of my website, but if you would like to visit then please do not hesitate to   Contact Becci.

Most items in this section are pre-loved so will have some wear in one form or another.  All the items and their conditions have been described as accurately as possible.  The photographs are part of those descriptions.  Many have never been used ‘new’ but are years old.

Please keep coming back as most of the items are from my own family collections and I have so much which needs to be parted with. it will take a while for me to put them all on here. Some of them are payment on Collection due to their 'pre-loved' condition or weight. Why not come and see them?

I am open to sensible offers.

Light and Kindness Always - Becci
