Brief History
This tabletop radiogram was manufactured in the 1950s by PYE. Its compact design offers more portability than the much larger furniture-style radiograms. This model has a three speed record player and broadcast radio receiver.

Pye Ltd was an electronics company founded by William Pye in Cambridge, UK in 1896 as a manufacturer of scientific instruments. The company later diversified into the radio, television and telecommunications fields, and also manufactured home appliances. It merged with EKCO in 1960 and was later taken over by Philips Electronics.
