Arvin 417 "Rhythm Baby" Tombstone (1936)
Posted is a beautifully restored Arvin Rhythm Baby. Hand rubbed lacquer finish, All local Boston stations received on this four-tube set. A classic for your collection!
Zenith 6-S-27 Tombstone (1936)
Up for sale is a beautiful, very iconic mid-thirties Zenith tombstone. Very original, grille and cloth are perfect. Solid cabinet with rich tones and the classic magna-vision colored dial. As good as it got for 1936 wood table radios. Big sound with long wire antenna attached. Very sensitive on the AM band. Receiving Chicago from here in the Boston area on my outdoor antenna. Shortwave signals received on bands B & C also. Almost 2 feet tall.
Zenith "Bomber" Trans-Oceanic (1942)
Exceedingly Rare Zenith Trans-Oceanic with production halted at the onset of WW2. I believe this is the first one ever offered on the "Radio Attic." The cabinet speaks for itself. Very hard to find alligator cloth cabinet in this condition. Plays on all bands and antenna still has the Red plastic ball which is usually broken off. As good as they get!
restoration philosophy has been to leave these classic radios in
their original condition as much as possible. I prefer not to
refinish or repaint a set unless it's absolutely necessary. When
this is necessary, I use a professional person for refinishing &
repainting. I have always tried to obtain the nicest original sets
and although some may not be working, they will be a clean platform
in which to begin a solid restoration. Radios will be listed as
working originals, working electrically restored or non working
originals, "as is." Any repairs that have been made, and any
cosmetic flaws associated with the radio, are completely disclosed.
I have been collecting radios since getting out of college in 1986.
I have a fairly vast collection spanning all eras of radio
evolution. Please contact me for any "wants" that you may
have; I may have it! Thank you.
All radios are tested to make sure they are playing prior to
shipping. A lot of jostling in shipping can make tubes loose and
connections become unconnected. These are some of the unforeseen
results associated with shipping. I have no control over how the
shipper treats the package. If you purchase a radio and it is not
working and playing when you receive it, I will offer several
suggestions to help it work. If those suggestions don't solve the
problem, you are welcome to ship it back to me for any repairs that
are necessary. The radio will be shipped back to you at my expense,
or your purchase price will be completely refunded if the set can't
I want you happy with any radio you purchase from me. If for
any reason, you are not satisfied with the radio you bought in the
condition stated in the original ad, please contact me within three
(3) working days to begin discussing any issues you have.
I pride myself as a "quality" packer and realize the importance of
delivering the radio to the customer without damage. We probably all
experienced the eBay radio purchase where upon opening a single
flimsy box with marginal to no packing material and find a broken
radio we couldn't wait for.
