The exterior is completely original and the radio was working perfectly when we got it back. The bakelite front panel is in an amazing condition. The varnish of the case is also original, we simply revived it by polishing. Some minor signs of the age of the unit:
- le vernis présente quelques rayures sur les côtés noirs de la caisse
- a veneer joint on the top of the case has opened slightly, causing a line to appear running from front to back that looks like a scratch.
As you can see from the pictures, this radio is in excellent condition!
History of the radio
The Surcouf is the most sought after vintage French radio, specially with a green bakelite front like this one.
Océanic was founded in Paris in 1937 by Roger Toutain, he was able to produce only one model of radio before the outbreak of the war and did not resume the activity until 1949. In the early 1950s, Paris was the world capital of Art Deco design, and this was reflected in all elements of interior design. In 1953, Oceanic had the idea of developing Art Deco models on the theme of the sea, and the success was instantaneous, and the production continued until 1966. Then the brand started to produce televisions and the first 'flat' screens. These "sea" radios are now very sought after by collectors.
Oceanic named all its radios after 1953 with marine names and the Surcouf was no exception, named after the famous French pirate Robert Surcouf, who died in 1827.
