Any time, any place, anywhere – The original Roberts Revival

img_3144

We have recently refurbished two original analogue Roberts Revival radios.  Roberts were inspired to create this model by the demand created when a vintage Roberts radio was featured in an 80s Martini advert.  These were some of the last Roberts Radios to bear the ‘Made in England’ label and were upholstered in much more durable coverings than the later Roberts Revivals.  One is in a ravishing, red Rexine cover and one in beautiful blue, genuine leather.  After a full check up (with any dodgy parts replaced) and a good clean and polish they are looking as good as when they left the Roberts’ Factory in East Mosley.   See them and our other re-covered and refurbished radios at www.revivedradios.com

Comic Relief Radio

At Revived Radios we were recently asked to produce a custom radio for the retirement of their CEO Kevin Cahill.  We were happy to do this and it looks like Kevin was happy with the result.  Happy Retirement!

Sound Waves in Orange

As a child of the seventies this fabulous orange fabric brought back some memories.  Our kitchen had wallpaper like this circa 1973.  I’m not sure I’d like my kitchen to look like that now but on this classic Roberts Radio it looks groovy baby.   See it at Revived Radios
