Religious stereo nightlight costructionThis is a really unusual construction that includes a light, car stereo, and compartments for placing items. All of this is set with a religious theme, having a large lighted cross dominating the look. The stereo includes AM/FM radio, cassette player, and speakers. The story behind this piece is that a preacher's son got caught stealing radios. As punishment, the preacher made his son turn his sin into repentance. The son made this religious item out of the stolen car radio. This piece is made from a mix of woods, with plexiglass and some kind of braid around the cross. It is in excellent working condition - even the cassette player. The radio would benefit with an antenna added to the socket on top, but gets some reception even without one. The knobs on the back are decorative only, the piece does not open. There are two small cracks in the plexiglass as seen in the closeups: one above the radio, the other by the light switch. It was likely made around the 1970's, and is 23" high by 13" wide by 11 1/2" deep to the front of the knobs. The price is $750.00. Inventory Code: TRRW.   See a slideshow of several views [734k] ...
