Neutrowound "1927"
Neutrowound Radio Mfg. Co.,
Division of
Advance Automobile Accessories Corp. Homewood, Illinois, USA

    The Neutrowound is one of the more uniquely styled radios made in the 1920s and has been nicknamed the Armored Breadboard because of it's resemblance to an Atwater Kent breadboard radio.  The 1927 model was originally offered in black, blue, and red.  Finding a Blue or a Red Neutrowound in good condition, today, can be challenging.  The paint is highly water-soluble and easily chips, allowing rust to form on bare metal.  The top cover is made of steel and the front, back, and sides are made of aluminum.
