History of the radio
Both the Sonolor radio and Tappez record player are highly collectible in their own right! Sonolor started making the Cyclone in 1955 and only produce it for 2 years so it’s very rare.
Sonolor is one of the legendary Art Deco brands, whose style stands out. Established in Paris, they took advantage of the post-war period and good designers to make a place for themselves in the small club of French radio manufacturers and became prominent at the turn of the 1960s. Attracting foreign investments, Sonolor was bought in 1972 by ITT (International Telephone and Telegraph corporation) which sold it to Nokia in 1987. The last Sonolor products were released in 1989.
Teppaz was founded in 1931, it was the first French brand to market a 78 rpm turntable in 1941, and remained the main turntable manufacturer until the 1970s. The brand specialized in portable record players, amplifiers, speakers and telephones. Teppaz was bought in 1988 by J-C. Sensamat, president of the company of the same name with the ambition to continue the audio lines of the brand. The company still exists, but seems to be limited to import-export, we have not found any reference to their audio systems.
