There were a few brands that had glorious combinations of color and styling. Global was one. 

     Global's signature was a very shiny metal mesh grille covering  a large area of the radio.  See other examples here and here.

     I cannot find any information on when this beauty was made.  I would expect it to be around 1960.  Compare it's symmetry with the 1961 Hitachi.
