Omar Khayyam Crystal Set Ceramic Radio Circa 1930

Everybody's favorite auction just released the catalog - Bonham's Scientific, Technological and Mechanical Instruments. I have a few favorites, but am particularly taken by this radio with elbow aerial. Catalog is well worth a browse. I prefer the bizarre automata, but I can see how others would be interested in the Enigma machine.
