Description and history
First, let’s take a look at the identification plaque:
The identification label corresponds to a model made by the know manufacturer Radio-Iseli AG, Zürich, Basel und Lugano. For curiosity, I have found an original newspaper ads for this brand:
This manufacturer made exclusive, custom made radio during circa mid 20th Century, specifically during the period 1955-1975. This company didn’t desing the electronic boards, they simply made the cabinets and ensamble all the equipment. The electrical part was made by a German Company named Saba, you can see a picture here of another radio with the same electronics:
Saba made electronic boards since 1950 to 1979. The name saba is an acronym, SABA = Schwarzwälder Apparate-Bau-Anstalt GmbH, Villingen. This model is a Freudenstadt 14 that was used in 1963-964 (so we can refine the age of this radio).
I believe this antique is a great piece for a variety of people. I think it will suit anyone who is an antique collector, researcher, or antique dealer. I believe that this piece would be valuable to anyone and that buying this piece would be a great investment for the buyer.

How to sell it
Antiques, art, and other collectibles are difficult items to sell online. This can take a lot of time. Be patient, but also make sure that the price you are asking for is the right one for your pieces of art. Consider the following tips on how to sell antiques and collectibles online. These tips will help maximize the price of your antique or collectible.
I would recommend selling it online, there are many ways to do this, for instance: Post an ad on Craigslist. Use eBay to sell antiques online. Post a listing on the Etsy marketplace. Sell with direct messages using Instagram. Create a website using Squarespace or WordPress. Use Shopify to sell via a website, POS and social channels. List your items on Bonanza.com, Facebook Marketplaces or Amazon Marketplace. The higher number of ads the better, if you don’t have time, I would recommend to start with Facebook, Etsy and Amazon.
The key to selling antiques on-line is to let potential customers know that you know what you are talking about. It’s much more difficult to sell something when the potential buyer can’t be sure it is authentic. Sellers should use a well thought out descriptive guides, like this report. A good lead generation service should be helpful in establishing these relationships with online buyers, and an effective way to do this is through a classified ads. If a buyer asks for more information, giving them some valuable facts well ahead of time will get you more sales because your reputation increases and real customers are the ones who ask for more details.
In order to sell your Antiques online, you will need to create a profile on the relevant forum (Etsy, Amazon and FB). Make sure you add a high-resolution image of the product (include at least 3 detailed photos) and add some text. The text should be informative and straight to the point, nothing fancy or fluffy.
Asking price is a big factor to sell your antique. If your asking price is too high (fancy company stickers, missing parts, or chip paint) you are unlikely to get many bids. If the asking price is too low it will cost you money for repairs, shipping, and insurance. As a general rule, I would recommend setting an asking price that is 80% of the value of this report, so you will make the listing attractive from the beginning.
About the valuation method
This is a detailed report of the value of your piece. To determine the value the appraiser has considered the results from past auction sales. Keep in mind that the final price can be different from asking prices that you can find on the internet. You can see ads on the internet with different asking prices. However, a very high asking price doesn’t normally find cash from a buyer
That’s why our method comprises searching and comparing similar past sale results that had a buyer. That’s why we can provide an accurate estimation of this item.
To get an accurate valuation of your antique piece I considered: description, condition, and possible precious metal content. History, age, provenance, and the importance it has played in history are also considered. A crucial interest is a collector’s willingness to buy this piece. While some antiques are really collectible, others are really difficult to sell, and hence their value decreases.
Antiques can be a good investment. A piece’s year of manufacture, condition, rarity, and history can all influence an antique’s value.Antiques, when bought wisely and carefully, can provide many good years and even decades of enjoyment before their value appreciates significantly. Antique furniture, paintings, prints and maps are not only useful works of art but also a tangible asset. Their value in the market increases every year making them great long-term investments for people who want to diversify their assets.
