Domestic Advertisements: Pilot "Little Maestro" Portable Radio

This Trader advert from November 1951 Shoes Pilot's lovely "Little Maestro", a name that was used for a whole series of portable radios.  This neat, dumpy radio continues Pilot's ability to present leading edge design for the time.

The small set with a Big Future!

The little set with the big-set performance
Here is a new two wave set with a really sparkling performance. Controls are simple, tone is excellent and reception and selectivity on long and medium waves are exceptional for such a small set. The new Little Maestro will please the most discriminating customer not only with its performance – but with its price; that makes it radio’s best buy today. Undoubtedly a set with a future.
