Addison 55 (1946)

ON SALE
until
June 30

Addison 55 (1946)

Collectors associate Addison with the stunning line of highly prized and expensive Catalin radios produced by this Canadian maker. This seldom found plastic model is cute as a button with a crisp dial and gorgeous marbleized knobs. It's also rather unique because the entire cabinet is a single molded piece sitting on top of the metal chassis. That allowed the designers to carve a convenient carry handle into the back and eliminate the usual flimsy cardboard back. Oddly, this radio has no dial lamp for illuminating the dial at nighttime. This radio weighs 6 pounds and measures 10-3/4"W x 6-3/4"H x 8"D.  Was $189.00, now $175.00. (1340082)

until
June 30

Airline 14WG-518 (1942)

This beautiful Montgomery Wards Airline radio has a very stylish and glossy brown Bakelite finish with an amazing gold dial. The chassis has been properly restored with a new power cord. It plays just as great as it looks. This radio weighs 6 pounds and measures 10-1/2"W x 7"H x 6-1/4"D.  Was $189.00, now $175.00. (1340083)

ON SALE
until
June 30

Airline 62-325 (1934)

I consider this an investment grade radio because you simply won't find a more perfect example. This little gem still has the original high gloss brown Bakelite finish, cardboard backing and labels in near perfect condition. It functions flawlessly and you'll be proud to display it. I purchased this directly from the owner of the legendary Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile" and you'll find this radio). 9"W 6-3/4"H x 5-1/2"D.  Was $229.00, now $209.00. (1340064)

June 30

Aldens 5000 (1947)

Long before the Internet, companies like Sears, Montgomery Wards and Aldens thrived by selling products from their giant catalogs. And, just like Sears and Wards, Aldens contracted with radio manufacturers to create their own private branded radios. The stepped cabinet design on this radio is very unique and eye pleasing. It still has the high gloss finish desired by all collectors. I purchased stunning little gem directly from the owner of the famous Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile antique radios" to read more). This radio plays very well because it was restored by the Radiophile master himself. This radio weighs 5 pounds and measures 10"W x 6-1/4"H x 5-1/2"D.  Was $209.00, now $199.00. (1340091)

 

American Bosch 430-T (1936)

NEW!

American Bosch 430-T (1936)

From the "golden age" of radio comes this magnificent tombstone style radio. The cabinet is a beautiful example of veneer use that transforms a functional radio into an eye pleasing piece of furniture. The radio appeals to your ears but buyers during the 1930's also demanded style. After all, these were the centerpieces of their family gathering room. This fine example has a near perfect cabinet and the electronics have been painstakingly restored by one of the most experienced and talented technicians on the east coast with no expense spared. The chassis is spotless and free of any corrosion found in old radios. It is a very good performer on AM and shortwave bands. 15-1/2"W x 18-1/4"H x 8-1/2"D; 22 pounds.  $389.00. (1340123)

 

Arvin 547A (1948)

NEW!

Arvin 547A (1948)

Here's another gorgeous radio purchased many years ago from the owner of the Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile antique radios" to see this radio). This set has two very unique features. First, the knobs on are on the left side of the radio, which favors those who are left-handed. Secondly, the original white knobs are exceptionally scarce. The deep chocolate swirl finish on this Bakelite radio is as good as new and it even has the original cardboard backing. As with all Radiophile sets, it's been meticulously restored and plays great! Don't miss this little gem. 9"W x 6-1/2"H x 6"D; 9 pounds.  $249.00. (1340121)

ON SALE
until
June 30

Coronado 43-8353 (1947)

Here's another wonderful radio I purchased directly from the owner of the Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile antique radios" to see this radio). The deep chocolate brown glossy finish on this Bakelite radio is impeccable so you know it's been treasured by its former owners. In fact, the original buyer cherished it so much, she kept the original owner's manual, station ID tabs, and even the sales receipt! That's right, it was purchased at Gambles, The Friendly Store, for $29.95. It has the big pushbuttons just like Grandpa's old car and plays beautifully. How many 70 year old radios look this new and include a tangible link to the original owner's past? It weighs 9 pounds and measures 12-3/4"W x 9"H x 8"D.  Was $249.00, now $225.00. (1340070)

 

Crosley 515 (1935)

ON SALE
until
June 30

Crosley 515 (1935)

Powell Crosley was a legendary manufacturer of automobiles and appliances that hand built his first radio for his son. He immediately recognized the potential for radios and quickly launched his newest business. Crosley radios were very popular because they combined value, design and performance. This is a petite little radio that does not take up much space. The cabinet is completely original but has a few areas of normal finish loss so I'd rate it a strong 9+ on a 10 point scale. I would never consider it a candidate to be refinished; it's only original once! This radio was painstakingly restored by one of the most talented technicians on the east coast. It plays exceptionally well and would be an outstanding addition to any collection. 12"H x 10-1/2"W x 8-1/4"D; 12 pounds.  Was $295.00, now $285.00. (1340110)

 

Croydon 136 by Detrola (1937)

NEW!

Croydon 136 by Detrola (1937)

Here's a delightful Detrola manufactured Croydon in a gorgeous cabinet featuring a variety of wood veneer patterns. This classic Big Dial table radio would compliment any atmosphere and be a real conversation piece. I purchased this one many years ago from a well-known collector of high-end radios. He treated the cabinet to an excellent restoration. It powers up just fine but I had difficulty clearly pulling in stations in my basement office. He represented it as restored but now it's being sold as-is. 16"W x 9-1/2"H x 7"D; 13 pounds.  $199.00. (1340120)

 

Detrola 105A Rome (1936)

NEW!

Detrola 105A Rome (1936)

Originally selling for $15.90, this little Depression Era radio was sold to families who wanted a second set for the bedroom or those who couldn't afford a larger radio in the family room. Made in Detroit, this petite radio featured the busy "Network Dial" that gave the impression you could pick up stations across the globe. Frankly, it performs very well. The sweeping wood side panels were also found on more expensive Detrola sets. The cabinet, grille cloth and knobs are completely original. It has been restored by one of the most talented and experienced technicians on the east coast and includes a new period correct cloth cord. 12"W x 8"H x 6-1/2"D; 7 pounds.  $329.00. (1340133)

 

DeWald 550 "Dynette" (1933)

ON SALE
until
June 30

DeWald 550 "Dynette" (1933)

This lovely little mantel radio was sold as a very inexpensive "mantel" or "midget" radio during the Great Depression. These compact radios sold like crazy because they delivered high style, moderate performance and low pricing. Examine the flowered detail of the knobs alone and think about the pride a family would take in owning this radio. Sadly, many of these radios were neglected or quickly discarded with the advent of cheap transistor radios. This one has been restored but the resistance line cord is original. 10-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 6"D.  Was $109.00, now $99.00. (1340033)

 

Emerson 330 (1941)

Emerson 330 (1941)

Here's a classic machine age looking radio with those wonderful louvered grille bars. Emerson's dials were always a treat to the eye and this is no exception. The cabinet is outstanding and the chassis has been well restored by a prior owner. It plays very well. This radio weighs 7 pounds and measures 11-1/2"W x 8"H x 7-1/2"D.  $169.00. (1340093)

 

Emerson 587-A (1949)

ON SALE
until
June 30

Emerson 587-A (1949)

Tired of looking at Bakelite radios with that dull, aged finish? Check out this nifty little black Plaskon Emerson. I purchased this from a well known antique radio collector in Atlanta who had the chassis correctly restored. The grille cloth, knobs and cardboard backing are fantastic. It plays like a champ. It weighs 4 pounds and measures 9"W x 5-3/4"H x 5-1/2"D.  Was $159.00, now $150.00. (1340077)

 

Emerson 613A (1950)

NEW!

Emerson 613A (1950)

Here is super cool little radio I purchased from the Radiophile collection many years ago (Google "Radiophile Plastic Radios" to read more about this set). This one is unique because the integrated antenna lifts up to create a shark fin look! It's the famous "Fan-Tenna" radio. This model is rarely seen for sale and the swirled salmon color is exceptionally uncommon. In fact, I don't think any Fan-Tenna radios have ever been listed on the Radio Attic. The knobs and interior labels are all original. There are a couple of normal cracks in the lid but no missing pieces. It powers up just fine but I can't pull in any stations from my basement office. The electronics appear to have been restored including a newer power cord. The chassis is especially clean but its sold as-is. 8-1/4"W x 7"H x 4"D; 6 pounds.  $195.00. (1340132)

 

Emerson 640 Portable (1950)

ON SALE
until
June 30

Emerson 640 Portable (1950)

You'd be a very cool cat if you owned this sweet portable radio in 1950. You would impress your friends and sweetheart by taking music on the go with a compact radio -- something that was impossible before 1950. Emerson made these in a variety of popular colors. It's complete and looks great. It might play if you have the correct batteries but there's no guarantee. It takes a standard "D" cell and a 67.5 volt battery that is available on Amazon but quite expensive. 9-1/4"W x 2-1/4"H x 5-1/2"D; 3 pounds.  Was $159.00, now $149.00. (1340104)

 

Emerson Auxiliary Speaker

ON SALE
until
June 30

Emerson Auxiliary Speaker

This is a darling little Emerson Auxiliary Speaker that was meant to boost the sound of a transistor radio or add "surround sound" to a phonograph player. I don't know the model name so let's just call it the "Super Neat-O". It looks like new in its perfect cream Plaskon cabinet and outstanding grille cloth. It has a nice little plug and sounds pretty darn good when attached to the RCA earphone jack of a little radio. It even has a cute little retractable carry handle. This is the perfect addition your vintage transistor radio or phonograph.  Was $69.00, now $65.00. (1340025)

 

Emerson CS-268 (1939)

ON SALE
until
June 30

Emerson CS-268 (1939)

Those sophisticated Emerson dials gave owners a high degree of confidence they could tune in distant stations. Emerson always had high standards for technical excellence and that's just one reason why they survive to this day. This machine age cabinet is stunning and the chassis has been well restored by a prior owner. It plays quite well. This radio weighs 7 pounds and measures 11-1/2"W x 8"H x 7-1/2"D.  Was $239.00, now $225.00. (1340094)

 

Firestone Air Chief S-7403-9 (1940)

ON SALE
until
June 30

Firestone Air Chief S-7403-9 (1940)

Firestone sold a lot of radios and other appliances in their tire stores located in rural areas. This fine example retains its original finish with breathtaking veneers. It's been well treated in the past because the knob decals show little wear from normal use. The colorful dial and bullet style knobs add to the charm of this radio. Imagine a family gathered around this radio listening intently for updates on WWII developments! I acquired this radio from the famous "Radiophile" collection (do a Google search to read more about this radio). They performed an excellent electronic restoration. 17"W x 15-1/2"H x 9-1/2"D.   Was $259.00, now $249.00. (1340004)

 

General Electric K-64 (1933)

NEW!

General Electric K-64 (1933)

This nifty cathedral from General Electric was one of the first to feature the giant globe or "airplane" dial that gives the impression the world is at your fingertips. Lingering effects of the Great Depression did not prevent buyers from snapping up this wonderful radio. It also features the decorative carry handle on the top, but I wouldn't recommend lifting with the handle. The wood cabinet is nearly perfect with just a couple of missing pieces in the base. The grille cloth, dial and knobs are outstanding originals. The electronics have been painstakingly restored by one of the most experienced and talented technicians on the east coast with no expense spared. There's even a new period correct cloth power cord for added safety. It has six tubes and is a great performer. 18-1/2"H x 14-1/2"W x 10-3/4"D; 23 pounds.  $495.00. (1340127)

 

Grebe MU-1 Synchrophase Late Version (1927)

Grebe MU-1 Synchrophase Late Version (1927)

In my opinion, this is the iconic battery set of the 1920's. Henry Rogers of the Radio Boulevard stated, "Vintage radio collectors have rated the Grebe Synchrophase MU-1 as one of the best, if not 'the best,' Battery-operated TRF-Neutrodyne radio receiver, with performance that is matched with timeless styling." It that's not enough, this particular radio is the LAST variation of the MU-1 line produced from mid-1926 to mid-1927. I'd rate the cabinet a solid "9" on a scale of 10. It's still one of the best I've ever seen and certainly remarkable for a 90 year old radio. I'll include a reproduction Instruction Manual ($35 value). This radio weighs 26 pounds and measures 23"W x 9"H x 13-1/4"D.  $495.00. (1340086)

 

Grunow 500 (1933)

NEW!

Grunow 500 (1933)

The photos say it all. Amazing veneer patterns, a flawless chrome grille and the classic Art Deco skyscraper style distinguish this extraordinary radio. The grille cloth, knobs and interior labels are original. A prior owner did a marvelous cabinet restoration and one of the most talented technicians on the east coast performed an impeccable electronic restoration. Don't let this beautiful radio slip away. 14"H x 13-1/2"W x 7"D; 19 pounds.  $429.00. (1340131)

 

Grunow 650 Tombstone (1935)

NEW!

Grunow 650 Tombstone (1935)

Here is another fabulous radio I purchased from the legendary Radiophile collection many years ago (Google "Radiophile Wood Radios" to read more about this set). You seldom find this model for sale so don't let this one get away. The grille bars and big globe "airplane style" dial are especially attractive. The cabinet is in excellent original condition with the normal imperfections found in any 80+ year-old antique. The grille cloth, knobs and interior labels are original as well. The Radiophile performed an impeccable electronic restoration for many future years of enjoyment. It is an excellent performer on AM and shortwave bands. 17"H x 14-1/2"W x 9-1/2"D; 28 pounds.  $495.00. (1340129)

 

Motorola 6T (1937)

Motorola 6T (1937)

Motorola generally wasn't known for offering stylish radios during the 1930's, but they hit a grand slam with this model. If you appreciate huge, Art Deco styled dials with warm lighting, look at this outstanding example. The cabinet is completely original, which is rare because most need refinishing. Savvy collectors always examine the lettering around the controls to determine how much use a radio had. It appears this one was seldom used because the decals are so crisp. One of the most experienced and talented technicians on the east coast has electronically restored this big brute for years of future service. 21-1/2"W x 12"H x 10-1/2"D; 27 pounds.  $649.00. (1340101)

 

Mullard MAR34 (1947)

NEW!

Mullard MAR34 (1947)

This radio is well suited for a James Bond movie. It is powerful, sophisticated and quite mysterious at the same time. Mullard was a highly respected British manufacturer who apparently produced (or at least assembled) this radio in the US. Finding any documentation on this specific model is impossible, and it's stumped many experienced radio collectors. Based on similar post-war models, I'm estimating it was manufactured in 1947. Rest assured, you'll be the only person on your block with this beauty. A brave and exceptionally talented technician restored the electronics, but two minor issues remain which do not affect the operation or performance. First, the green eye tube does not seem to register signal strength. It appears to be a strong tube so I don't suspect it's faulty. Secondly, the band switch works properly but it does not display the setting in the upper right dial. It's not difficult to ascertain the band setting based on the knob position. As you would expect, it's a superb performer on AM and shortwave bands. The cabinet is in remarkable original condition. 20-1/2"W x 12-3/4"H x 9-1/2"D; 29 pounds.  $495.00. (1340126)

 

Panasonic RF-2600 (1981)

ON SALE
until
June 30

Panasonic RF-2600 (1981)

Here's a powerhouse radio that's built like a tank. This was an expensive receiver, not a cheesy imitator like the so-called "boombox radios" from this era. Tune in those elusive AM, FM and shortwave signals with this exceptionally clean example of Panasonic technological superiority. The sound from the large speaker is outstanding. I searched forever to find a nearly mint example of this outstanding table radio. If you enjoy precisely locating a variety of shortwave, FM and AM stations with high sensitivity and selectivity, this vintage receiver is as good as any set produced more than 35 years later! 13-1/2"W x 11"H x 6"D; 7 pounds.  Was $349.00, now $335.00. (1340114)

 

Panasonic RF-3100 (1982)

ON SALE
until
June 30

Panasonic RF-3100 (1982)

This radio was a technological breakthrough, since it one of the very first portable radios to use a PLL frequency synthesizer tuner. What does that mean to you? Its easy to use digital tuning enables precise AM, FM and Shortwave reception. Panasonic was at the height of Japanese radio technological superiority when this was produced. I hunted a very long time to find a near perfect example of this outstanding table radio. If you enjoy locating a variety of foreign shortwave stations along with high sensitivity for AM and FM, this radio is just as competent as any modern set, more than 35 years after it was sold! 14-1/2"W x 5-1/4"H x 9-1/2"D; 8 pounds.  Was $349.00, now $335.00. (1340113)

 

Philco 37-600 (1937)

ON SALE
until
June 30

Philco 37-600 (1937)

Philco introduced their entry level 37-600 for the low, low price of just $25. Who could resist the lovely, streamlined faux finish front? This interesting radio has a full wood back so the chassis is mounted from the bottom. It even looks cool from the rear side and you can't say that about too many radios! It's been restored and plays OK but these were not high performance radios when new. The plastic dial lens is cracked. 12-1/2"W x 8-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D.  Was $149.00, now $139.00. (1340035)

 

Philco 40-155T (1940)

NEW!

Philco 40-155T (1940)

The original finish on this big Philco is one of the very best you'll ever find on any radio. You'd spend a lifetime trying to locate a nicer example of this powerful set. The original decals, station ID letters, knobs and grille cloth are perfect, so it was obviously cherished by the original owner. The wine colored push buttons have been replaced with perfect reproductions because originals always crumble and become discolored. The electronics have been painstakingly restored by one of the most experienced and talented technicians on the east coast with no expense spared. It has eight tubes and is a superb performer on AM and shortwave bands. 18-1/2"W x 11"H x 12-1/2"D 23 pounds.  $549.00. (1340122)

 

Philco 41-90 (1942)

ON SALE
until
June 30

Philco 41-90 (1942)

I've always thought Philco engineers designed this radio to be in a wood cabinet but the accountants insisted on using the less costly Bakelite alternative. This is a burly radio tipping the scales at 13 pounds, highly unusual for a Bakelite set. It has superior receiving capabilities thanks to Philco's renown engineering capabilities and the built-in antenna. The chassis has been expertly restored by a prior owner and it plays wonderfully. The original knobs and grille cloth are present but the cardboard back is missing. 14"W x 10-1/4"H x 7"D.  Was $279.00, now $259.00. (1340084)

 

Philco TH-16 Transitone (1940)

Philco TH-16 Transitone (1940)

Here's a 77 year old Bakelite radio that looks like it was manufactured last week. Unlike most radios in the past, Philco engineers designed a giant internal loop antenna into the rear Bakelite segment of this radio. Of course, you can also attach a simple thin wire for even better performance but it's already a great receiver. I purchased this stunning little jewel directly from the owner of the famous Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile antique radios" to read more). This radio plays very well because it was restored by the Radiophile guru himself. This radio weighs 6 pounds and measures 8-1/2"W x 6-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D.  $209.00. (1340105)

until
June 30

Pioneer SE-50 Headphones (1972)

As a poor college student in the 1970's, I would fantasize about owning a Marantz stereo receiver, turntable, walnut bookshelf speakers and the Pioneer SE-50 headphones. I recall pouring over catalogs and visiting stereo shops with my buddies but all we could afford were dreams. Many years later I purchased this pristine set from a collector who specializes in vintage stereo gear from the 1970's. They still sound great today and almost look brand new. Even the presentation box suggests they're worthy of the Queen of England. The box weighs 5 pounds with the headphones and measures 7"W x 6"H x 8-1/2"D.  Was $95.00, now $85.00. (1340100)

 

RCA T7-5 (1936)

NEW!

RCA T7-5 (1936)

RCA made great radios during the 1930's. They were among the most technologically advanced, had outstanding reception, superior sound, and gorgeous cabinets. Along with competitive pricing, effective advertising and excellent distribution channels, RCA was riding the wave of popularity during the Golden Age of Radio. This powerful seven-tube superhet radio is a prime example of their accomplishments. The cabinet is in excellent original condition with just a few ordinary blemishes. The classic RCA wheat grille cloth, knobs and interior labels are original as well. One of the most talented and experienced technicians on the east coast performed an impeccable electronic restoration. It is a fantastic performer on AM and shortwave bands. 19"H x 15-1/4"W x 9-1/2"D; 31 pounds.  $395.00. (1340130)

 

Silvertone 4564 (1936)

NEW!

Silvertone 4564 (1936)

Here's a delightful Sears Silvertone with the giant golden globe dial. The cabinet is in very nice original condition with original grille cloth and knobs. It powers up just fine but there's no sound. The electronics appear to have been restored including a new power cord. The chassis is especially clean so I expect it's just a failing tube. However, it's sold as-is. I'll eventually have the tubes tested and re-list it but now is a good time to steal this if you're a bargain hunter. 17"H x 12-3/4"W x 9-1/2"D; 18 pounds.  $199.00. (1340124)

Silvertone 4565 (1936)

If you love enormous radio dials with amazing detail, none are finer than the big gold Sears Silvertone radios. Add in a green tuning eye, a fantastic cabinet design and a high performing receiver and you've got a spectacular radio. The chassis has been painstakingly restored by one of the most talented technicians on the east coast. It retains the original grille cloth, knobs and rear cover. A modern power cord was also installed. The cabinet top has couple of dark marks and there's some finish loss here and there, but nothing that would inspire a serious collector to perform a cabinet restoration. They are original only once. This gorgeous radio plays as great as it looks. It weighs 21 pounds and measures 21"W x 13-1/2"H x 11"D.  Was $569.00, now $549.00. (1340079)

 

Silvertone 7025 (1947)

NEW!

Silvertone 7025 (1947)

Sears & Roebuck stores and catalogs sold this delightful chocolate brown Silvertone in huge numbers just after WWII. It's one of the famous "Candy Cane" radios that appealed to the eyes and ears. Not only was it compact enough for your bedroom dresser, it sounded like a much larger radio at a very affordable price. It retains the original glossy finish, petite knobs and nifty gold dial. The chassis has been properly restored with a new power cord. It plays just as great as it looks. 10-1/2"W x 6"H x 6"D; 7 pounds.  $239.00. (1340128)

ON SALE

June 30

Silvertone 9073B (1950)

Here's another wonderful set I purchased directly from the owner of the Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile antique radios" to see this record player). The deep, glossy Bakelite finish is impeccable so you know it's been treasured by its former owners. The radio plays wonderfully because it's had an excellent restoration. Although the turntable spins, records do not sound great. Perhaps a new needle or cartridge are required. It includes a 45rpm record by Skeeter Davis (woo-hoo) and adapter but also plays 78rpm records. It weighs 10 pounds and measures 10"W x 13"D x 7"H.  Was $139.00, now $119.00. (1340080)

 

Sonora KB-73 Suitcase Portable (1939)

Sonora KB-73 Suitcase Portable (1939)

Here's another example of a nice "suitcase style" portable tube radio from the early 1940's. These were popular for use at the beach, on a picnic or for the home. Imagine the families who depended on them for the latest news developments and entertainment. This radio plays well and may have had an older restoration. 14-1/4"W x 10"H x 6-1/4"D.  $69.00. (1340059)

Sonora RZU-222 (1947)

Here's another special radio I purchased directly from the legendary Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile antique radios" to see this radio). A good friend once admired this radio and told me it reminded him of a giant piece of white chocolate candy. I couldn't agree more! Now, there are a just a few tiny paint chips which is quite normal with this radio. It has not been doctored with little dabs of paint. Sometimes well intended owners try to touch up these paint chips but only make it worse since it's nearly impossible to correctly color match this paint. This is the finest example of the ivory Sonora I've ever seen. This factory painted Bakelite radio weighs 8 pounds and measures 11-1/4"W x 8-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D  Was $295.00, now $279.00. (1340096)

Radio collectors tend to love bright, colorful dials with a streamlined appearance. Carefully examine the Art Deco look of this great dial and you'll want it for yourself. The rounded and sculpted cabinet match it perfectly. This is simply a great little radio that's had an electronic and cabinet restoration so grab it before it gets away. 14"W x 9-1/2"H x 8-1/2"D.  $229.00. (1340038)

Stromberg Carlson 58-T Tombstone (1936)

This magnificent tombstone style radio was made by a company widely considered to produce the highest quality sets available. The cabinet is an outstanding original but has a nick in the top and a couple of minor scratches. It would be a shame to refinish an otherwise perfect cabinet in my opinion. This radio was painstakingly restored by one of the most talented technicians on the east coast. It plays exceptionally well and would be a real statement piece in any serious collection. This radio weighs 27 pounds and measures 19-1/4"H x 14-3/4"W x 10-1/2"D.  Was $495.00, now $475.00. (1340085)

Stromberg Carlson 130-J (1937)

This is not just another high quality Stromberg Carlson radio with phenomenal performance. It's a stunning piece of furniture with the most intricate veneers that have ever been applied to a cabinet. In addition to the rich burl wood, examine the precise book matched veneer sides. This would be the crown jewel of any collection. It has been electronically restored by one of the most experienced and talented technicians on the east coast. A prior owner did a spectacular job refinishing the cabinet. I've only seen two other examples of this radio in my years of collecting and this rare "J" model appears to be the only one ever offered on the Radio Attic. Warning: shipping will be expensive; local pick up is encouraged. It weighs 31 pounds and measures 22-1/4"W x 13-3/4"H x 10-1/2"D.  Was $795.00, now $749.00. (1340099)

Stromberg Carlson 420-H (1940)

If you wanted the best money could buy, Stromberg-Carlson radios were sought out for their unmatched performance and beauty. Imagine it is 1940 and your family is anxious to hear the latest news on the war in Europe and Franklin Delano Roosevelt's messages. This mammoth radio had all of the power needed to reliably find signals from across the globe. The cabinet is a near perfect original with beautiful veneers. It has been restored to electronic perfection and it a fabulous receiver even by today's standards. As with most radios from this era that used Tenite plastics for the dial escutcheon, some shrinkage and a small stress crack can be seen in the photo. I've never seen a nicer example of this radio. This big brute weighs 25 pounds and measures 22"W x 11-1/2"H x 9"D.  Was $489.00, now $449.00. (1340069)

Weltron 2001 Space Ball (1971)

Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" was a movie sensation in 1968. Over one-half billion TV viewers watched NASA's Apollo 11 conduct the first successful moon landing in 1969. In response, Weltron brilliantly designed an AM, FM, 8-Track set that resembled an astronaut's helmet! Everyone, including myself, wanted one of these modern music machines on their desk. Not a gimmick, they were excellent performing radios and everybody was demanding an 8-Track tape player for home use. As a poor student, I couldn't afford one but I did buy this outstanding example about 15 years ago from a fellow collector. It plays and sounds great on AM and FM. Even the 8-Track tape player works! And, the buyer will receive these 8-Track tapes with their purchase: The Captain & Tennile, Chris Hillman and Little Feat. It operates on AC power or batteries. 12-1/2"H x 10-1/2"W x 10-1/2"D; 13 pounds.  Was $395.00, now $379.00. (1340119)

Westinghouse H-201 (1949)

Here's an exceptionally rare opportunity to own a magnificent New Old Stock radio that comes in the original box! This radio was stored in a closet and never used until I discovered it in 2010. The power cord has never been unwrapped from the factory and has the original Westinghouse hang tag. The two "white spots" on the front feet were caused by sitting on the wrapping paper for more than 60 years. They could be touched up but I think it adds to the history. While it's so unusual to find a NOS radio, it just happens to be an very high end model that few could afford in 1949. Reception and performance is off the charts. It's been meticulously restored to replace components which naturally deteriorate over time (think of tires on a 68 year old car). I've only tested it so now it's time for a new owner to proudly display and use this radio. WARNING: shipping will be very expensive; local pick up is strongly encouraged. It weighs 34 pounds and measures 20"W x 14-1/4"H x 11-1/2"D.  Was $695.00, now $649.00. (1340097)

Zenith 4K402D (1940)

I purchased this amazing battery radio from the owner of the legendary Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile wood radios" to read more about this set). The case is in outstanding condition after 77 years. And, remarkably, it includes the original sales tag and Zenith battery. The carry handle is very nice but should not be used due to the age and weight of this radio. This is a display only radio and you'll want to read the Radiophile's explanation about preserving the authenticity and originality of this remarkable radio. You simply won't find a better example of this radio. 11"H x 9-1/2"W x 6-1/2"D; 12 pounds.  Was $295.00, now $275.00. (1340102)

 

Zenith 5-S-218 (1938)

NEW!

Zenith 5-S-218 (1938)

Zenith collectors recognize this as the "cube" radio. It's a delightful example of a compact wood set with the famous Zenith sound. This little gem has been fully restored by one of the most talented restoration technicians on the east coast for many future years of listening enjoyment. The original wooden knobs feature the famous "Z" logo. Over the years it has developed a small crack in the black plastic dial lens at the "3 o'clock" position that I've exaggerated with camera exposure settings so you know it's there. Reproductions dials are available but this does not detract from the appearance and is not apparent unless the dial is illuminated in darkness. The speaker is mounted on the left side of the cabinet and produces excellent sound. It is a great performer on AM and shortwave bands. 12"W x 10-1/2"H x 9-1/2"D; 16 pounds.  $379.00. (1340125)

Zenith 7-S-323 (1939)

This powerful monster was one of Zenith's top performing table radios for 1939. It was sold to families who didn't have the floor space for a large upright radio but demanded the same performance in a table set. It has been electronically restored by one of the most experienced and talented technicians on the east coast. A prior owner did a spectacular job refinishing the cabinet. It sports the original grille cloth, knobs and the famous big, black Zenith dial with a new green tuning eye tube. This radio is highly coveted by serious collectors and seldom offered for sale. Warning: shipping will be very expensive; local pick up is encouraged. It weighs 31 pounds and measures 22-1/2"W x 14-1/4"H x 13-1/2"D.  Was $795.00, now $749.00. (1340098)

Policies:

I will hold a radio five (5) calendar days for the first buyer to send an email expressing their intention to purchase the radio.   If payment is not received in full within five (5) calendar days, it is eligible to be sold to any other potential buyer.   I do not accept partial payments, deposits or monthly payment plans.

Once a buyer agrees to purchase a radio, the buyer accepts all responsibility and liability for the safe use and operation of the radio.   Due to the age and design of antique radios, I can not warranty any parts or guarantee performance.  I fully test my radios before shipment.  However, antique radios can suffer from noise, static and reception anomalies caused by household appliances, lighting devices, building construction materials, atmospheric conditions and antenna issues.

If a buyer is not satisfied with a radio they have seven (7) calendar days after delivery to contact me by email.  If a buyer wants a full purchase price refund, the radio must be returned in as-sold condition.  Any returned item must be carefully packed, shipped and fully insured for the original purchase price at the buyer's expense.  The buyer must promptly return the radio so it is received by the seller within fifteen (15) calendar days after it was initially delivered to the buyer.  The buyer must provide the return tracking number.  The seller will refund the full purchase price within seven (7) calendar days after the radio is received and inspected if these conditions are satisfied.

Actual packing, shipping and insurance costs are paid by the buyer.  My radios are professionally packed at the local FedEx or UPS Business Center.  The added cost for professional packing generally ranges from $12 to $25 depending on the size, shape and weight of the radio.  Brand new boxes and packing materials that are properly sized for your radio will minimize the potential for shipping damages.  While other sellers may do a wonderful job packing a radio, I strongly feel these antique instruments deserve to be properly packed by shipping professionals using brand new materials.  There is absolutely nothing worse than destroying a beautiful piece of history with incorrect packing materials, careless workmanship or ill-fitting boxes.  As with all things in life, you get exactly what you pay for and full-time professionals typically do better work than amateur packers.  I charge my exact costs for packing, shipping and insurance--no added fees.

Depending on the package size, distance and weight, your radio will be shipped via FedEx, UPS or USPS Parcel Select.  If your radio is damaged in shipping and you request a refund, you may have to take the radio and all of the original packaging to your FedEx, UPS or Post Office location for inspection.  This is FedEx, UPS and USPS policy.  In certain cases, the shipping carrier may retrieve the radio and packing materials from your home upon request.  International shipping is by prior arrangement only.  No PO Box or APO addresses can be used.

Payment Options:
1) Money Order or Bank Cashiers Check.
2) PayPal funded from your checking account or PayPal balance only.  No credit card payments of any kind through PayPal unless you absorb all fees.
3) Personal checks (must clear prior to shipping).
4) Cash (in-person local pickup).
