Hard to find RCA treasure chest model from 1939. Cabinet has been refinished with toners and a hand rubbed semi-gloss lacquer. The rope handles, grille cloth and back plate are original but the glass dial lens is a reproduction. The five-tube chassis plays perfectly with new wax/paper capacitors, tested tubes and resistors, alignment and new power cord. I don't believe the painted Bakelite knobs are original to this model.

Very impressive RCA tombstone from 1932, restored to stunning condition. The eight-tube chassis is AM band only, has all new wax/paper capacitors and a new cloth power cord. All resistors were checked and replaced if necessary, and the set was aligned for peak performance. The original speaker cone has been modified, I assume to increase flexibility for sound improvement.

(1550003)

Five-tube Bakelite radio from the 1952 Sears catalog. Originally white but repainted diamond white pearl with automotive three-stage paint giving it a pearlescent appearance.

Unknown AM/SW Radio

Unknown AM/SW Radio

This is one stylish radio, but after 20+ years, I still haven't figured out who made it or seen another like it. Judging by its construction, it's a budget model from around 1940. It's a two-band set with a five-tube chassis plus a resistor tube and tuning eye. Plays well on its 5-ft wire antenna; short wave band needs a long wire. The tuning eye is NOS and bright. The cabinet was refinished in lacquer toner and semi-gloss clear and the original grille cloth was reused. The knobs are not original. 15"W x 9"H x 7"D.  $275.00. (1550019)

 

Zenith 5-D-611W (1942)

NEW!

Five-tube Zenith from 1942. Originally painted ivory white, the Bakelite cabinet has been repainted with three-stage automotive paint. The color is 2002 Cadillac diamond white pearl, code 800J. It's difficult for the camera to pick up the depth and pearlescence of the paint. The chassis has has all wax paper capacitors replaced, tubes and resistors checked as well as the alignment. New dial lens. Plays great with its internal loop antenna. 12"W x 7"H x 6"D.  $220.00. (1550024)
