Philco 37-630T

Philco 37-630T

Made in the 1936/37 manufacturing cycle, this is a beautiful Art Deco style radio. It has broadcast plus two short wave bands and six tubes. The control knobs are on/tone, band and volume, and it has a shadow meter tuning aid. The cabinet has been refinished with stain and lacquer. 20"W x 11"H x 9"H; 26 pounds.  $285.00. (1410040)

 

Atwater Kent 286 Console

Atwater Kent 286 Console

A lovely petite console radio with great Deco detail. On the front it has intricate inlay that sets off beautifully book-ended veneers in several different woods. The sound is just wonderful from its six tubes and a large 12" speaker. Manufactured in 1935. 37"H x 22"W 11"D.  $900.00. (1410039)

 

American Bosch 680 Console (1936)

American Bosch 680 Console (1936)

This stately 13-tube radio was manufactured in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1936. Each band in its dial is color coded to match the band switch position. The chassis is broken up into two parts to isolate noise from the power supply. The lower section is for audio and power and the upper section for radio circuits. It produces a big sound because it puts out 20 watts of sound through the 14-inch speaker. This is one of the best sounding radios we've heard. The cabinet features light and dark contrasted veneers and a detailed inlay at the top. The recessed speaker grille provides interest to the look. Very heavy; local pick up in the Washington/Oregon area advised.  $1,800.00. (1410038)

 

Zenith 12-S-266 "Robot Dial" Console (1938)

Zenith 12-S-266 "Robot Dial" Console (1938)

This beautiful, twelve-tube radio was manufactured in Chicago, Illinois, in 1937. Turning the band switch changes the dial face like a shutter camera. This was called a shutter dial. It also has a knob in the center of the tuning dial that engages a motor to turn the dial pointer. It has a green magic eye tuning tube at the top of the large black dial face that narrows when a station is tuned in. The 12-inch speaker with 15 watts output has an acoustic adapter to reinforce the bass response. It is a very ornate, stylish, retro looking radio with beautiful burl book-ended panels. The grille cloth was a very "modern" look in 1937!  $2,250.00. (1410037)

 

Zenith 9-S-344 Chairside (1939)

Zenith 9-S-344 Chairside (1939)

Beautiful chairside radio. This Deco style radio is somewhat rare; only 1000 to 6000 were made in 1939. It has a shutter dial that changes the face with the band selected. It is completely restored and in great shape. I did not put an external jack on this radio to keep it original. If you want one ask me to install it. 29-1/4"H x 21-1/2"W x 16-1/2"D; 61 pounds.  $1,600.00. (1410036)

 

Zenith 8-S-531

Zenith 8-S-531

Somewhat rare Zenith large tabletop radio. Not many of this model were made, between 1000 and 6000. Very nice condition. All original knobs. Completely restored and has a 10" speaker for loud volume and great sound. Same chassis as the console. Beautiful cabinet with Burl highlights.  $800.00. (1410035)

 

Zenith 12-H-670 "Newport" Console (1941)

Zenith 12-H-670 "Newport" Console (1941)

This Zenith was manufactured in 1941. It has broadcast, medium and short wave bands and a 14" Electro Magnetic Dynamic speaker. The cabinet was stripped and repaired. It has a multilayer stain, lacquer and wax finish. The escutcheon, knobs and speaker cloth are original. All electronics restored and new capacitors.  $1,000.00. (1410033)

 

Gilfillan 56B

Gilfillan 56B

This small wooden cased radio has a polished copper front piece. It was manufactured in 1946, and has five tubes and standard broadcast (AM) tuning. The wooden control knobs are volume and tuning. The case is a nice wooden enclosure including the back. Weight is 6 pounds. 12"W x 7"H x 7"D.  $150.00. (1410031)

 

RCA 66X13 (1947)

RCA 66X13 (1947)

Very retro looking table radio. This is an AC/DC set manufactured in 1947. It is broadcast only band AM, but has an external audio input jack on the back. It has a built in antenna and large dial face.  $150.00. (1410029)

 

General Electric 221 (1947)

General Electric 221 (1947)

1947 tabletop AC/DC set with external music plug. AM and short wave bands. Cabinet refinished. Has a built-in AM antenna but will need an external antenna for shortwave.  $175.00. (1410027)

 

Philco 41-245 AM/SW (1941)

Philco 41-245 AM/SW (1941)

Manufactured in 1941, this seven-tube tabletop has standard broadcast (AM), automatic push-button AM and two shortwave bands. A red indicator on the dial indicates which of the four bands is selected. Cabinet was in good condition, so the light areas refreshed and the dark areas re-lacquered. Original speaker cloth and knobs, replacement glass dial plate. Unable to find a replacement for the warped bezel that is typical for this radio, so I rebuilt the broken corners with Bondo and lacquered it for original color. Not perfect, but good-looking, none-the-less. External auxiliary music plug installed (1/8"); will work with MP3 vplayers, cell phone, CD and Chromecast using your cell phone for a remote controller. 12"W x 10-1/2"H x 9-1/4"D; weight 15 lb.  $300.00.

Anderson Classic Radios Customer Comments

We just purchased a beautiful radio from Glenn at Anderson Classic Radios. This is probably the first time such a huge piece of sheer joy was shipped to Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The radio arrived in perfect condition. it is placed in our office and is a piece of conversation. I am planning to add a few more to my collection. Glenn, thank you so much for taking the trouble to pack it and getting it shipped. -- Ashok/UAE

Thanks so much for all of the tender loving care you and Jan put into my now lovely Philco 42-350. After purchasing it from a less than scrupulous seller I was understandably a bit worried about entrusting someone I didn't really know with the task of getting it into good working order. Well, what a waste of worry. Your judgement relative to the work to be done as well as your work itself was outstanding. Thank you so much for putting in far more than the minimum care needed to fulfill your commitment. The two of you did several things that were needed, but not really mentioned, like restringing the tuning system and removing an inappropriate cabinet finish and replacing it with a more traditional one. It's obvious that you both care about vintage radios and I am a sincerely grateful beneficiary. I hope others in this region, west of Seattle, take advantage of your services as well. They will not be disappointed! -- Chuck
