Vintage GE Clock Radio, Electric C4500A General Electric Radio, Decorative Beige Black Clock, Solid State AM FM Wake to Music, Retro Radio

$212.36 $265.45

The General Electric Model C4500A Electric Radio is in great condition. There are no breaks, cracks, chips, or repair marks on the radio or cord as far as we can tell. However, there are some vintage wear and rub marks on the radio. For example, the front plastic window has some very slight surface marks that are most likely from simple cleaning over the years.

As the pictures reveal, this is one clean and colorful electric radio. The little metal ends of the cord have letters and numbers. One end has E2452 while the other end has LR8519.

The radio appears to be in good working condition. However, we did not check the wake-up to music setting. The knob has three clicks. The little line on the knob does not line up exactly with the words on the plastic window but this appears to be due to the fact the factory spread the words on the plastic too far apart. In reality, the marking had to look uniform and neat so it is clear why it is this way.

The bottom of the radio states, “This clock radio features wake to music and does not include an auxiliary alarm”.

The radio must be plugged into AC only.

The clock does not appear to have a battery backup.

The ratings are as follows:

120 VAC
AM 455 kHz I.F.
FM 10.7 MHz I.F.


60 Hz
15 Watts

AM540-1600 kHz
FM 88-108 MHz

Model C4500A - Beige

Solid State General Electric Radio

The sticker has not been reinstalled or glued down. The sticker simply looks that good.

The radio has been cleaned inside and out. The radio was opened up to make sure any dust or debris particles were removed. Also, the front plastic window was removed and that area cleaned.

The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous radio are many. While it is certainly vintage, the silver and black dashboard work together to bring this treasure onto the contemporary stage. Also, the display shelf would certainly welcome this beautiful radio. Finally, given the condition and cleanliness of this vintage electric treasure, it could also be a great addition to a growing group of vintage collectibles. Another great location for this beautiful clock would be the desk at work or in the study.

The collector will appreciate this radio for its great condition and beautiful retro design.

The radio weighs 41.4 oz.

The radio measures 5 3/8” tall x 8.75” wide not including the knobs x 4 5/8” deep.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. The actual laying down or standing up of an item may appear to change that size a little bit. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***We do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished look.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that we do not enhance all of our pictures. Sometimes the first picture is enhanced for lighting purposes, etc. Therefore, the other pictures should be in very close agreement with the color.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of manufacturing or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with a regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront. If you see a questionable mark that is not in the description of an item you are interested in please contact me.

***Please note that since we offer free shipping in the United States, the actual first Shipping costs incurred due to the transaction from the seller to the buyer will be deducted from any returned and/or refundable purchases with the exception of missing items, damages from shipping, listing, and/or condition errors, along with full compliance of Etsy return and refund standards. We are dedicated to our customers and always strive for your satisfaction.
