Almost looks like 50s on the stereo, of course if it is stereo and not HI FI it would be 60s I think. Cool stuff.

Nice picture, I love the "Hawaiian Eye" wall covering behind the Marconi. Great Electrolux too!

I'd place it around the late '50s through early '60s before all the plastic wood consoles came in. A friend of mine has a very similar blonde finished Grundig stereo; it no longer works but she keeps it around because it's to pretty in her 1960 home.

the stereo

works, but it has a hum after it is on for a few minites. It valso has a record player.

Someday I'd like to find an old stereo like that (preferably broken electronics insode) and gut it out, and put a modern integrated amp and some nice speakers. With digital music these days don't need to worry about trying to fit a CD player or tape deck or any of that junk. :)

Looking good, just need a nice polished up Kirby model 5xx and you're set. ;)
