Abbotwares Z477 (1949)

Here is another one of a kind radio design! This Abbotwares "Horse with Saddle" is seldom seen, and when found is usually missing its saddle. I've seen five or six in my 40+ years of collecting, and this is the only one I've owned. It came from the estate of a Doctor in Auburn, Maine, who collected only the best of each radio. This is easily the best I've seen. The electrolytic capacitors were recently replaced by my Tech Friend Tom, and he put an on/off switch on the cord as the one on the volume control was not working. The radio plays well. 14"H x 11-1/2"W x 4-1/2"D.  $695.00. (1620013)

Crosley Hybrid Book Radios, Set of 6 (1956)

I bought this set of six 1956 Crosley hybrid tube/transistor Book Radios from a friend over 20 years ago, and have never seen anyone else offer these as a set, anywhere. One of the first sets to use transistors in 1956, each has three miniature tubes and two transistors for outputs. "Fantasy" is model JM-8MN, serial #4474. "Magic Mood" is model JM-8GN, serial #14066. "Treasure Island" is model JM-8WE, serial #15298. "Musical Memories" is model JM-8BG, the serial # is missing. "Enchantment" is model JM-8BK, serial #27620. "As You Like It" is model JM-8BNa, serial #38224. Note the "a" in its model number, as this later book has the on/off on the volume dial instead of being actuated by the cover of the book. Four of these are excellent to exceptional and may never have been used. The other two are better than most others I've seen. Radios are untested but complete. I'm sure some work, or could be made to work easily with some new capacitors if necessary. My son says it is time for a new owner to enjoy these, so here you go. Sorry, I will not break up the set. Each book is 7"H x 4-1/2"W x 2"D.  $1,195.00. (1620008)

Detrola 216 "Detrola Junior" (1939)

Here is an excellent "Detrola Junior" from 1939. I've seen this same miniature radio as Silvertone and Truetone. This set has no cracks or chips, and the mottled brown Bakelite case still retains its original sheen. My Tech Friend Tom repaired this one for me, but I don't see his repair tag in it. I do see the new electrolytic caps under the chassis. On test while I sit here, it played well for me using its own string antenna. 6-1/2"W x 5"H x 4"D.  $395.00. (1620015)

Emerson 315 "Bullseye" w/Ingraham Cabinet (1940)

Here is another great Machine Age design. This Emerson is in a wonderful Ingraham-designed curved wall cabinet with a wooden bullseye over the speaker. Little Joe refinished the cabinet for me about 20 years ago. If you tip it just right, you can see a run in the finish, but it looks awesome. My Tech Friend Tom recently replaced the electrolytic capacitors in the set, and it played well when tested. 11"W x 8"H x 5-1/2"D.  $595.00. (1620005)

Emerson 581A (1949)

Here is an Beautiful Ivory Plaskon Mid Century Modern design! This five-tube Emerson is wonderful to look at, and even better at night when the dial and most of the case glow from the pilot light! This set is in wonderful condition with no cracks or chips and still retains its original back. The dial has a slight warp from the heat of the pilot lamp (typical of these sets). The electrolytic capacitors were recently replaced by my Tech Friend Tom, and it plays well. 11"W x 8"H x 6"D.  $295.00. (1620014)

Emerson DR-352 w/Ingraham Cabinet (1940)

Here is another beautiful Emerson radio in an awesome Ingraham designed cabinet. You don't see this one often, and as far as I know, it is the only one I have seen in person. This Emerson radio is in an all original cabinet, and it looks great! I believe Ingraham only did the "bentwood" wrap over grille cover on a couple of Emerson Radios. This was nicknamed the "Lobster Claw" by someone on the internet. I assume because of the two pull outs on the front of the cabinet and the curved sides. I have no repair history on this set, but it plays well. I pick up plenty of AM, and some short wave chatter on the 6 to 18 MHz band on a short wire in my cellar. An outdoor antenna would be needed for short wave DXing. 14-1/2"W x 9-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D.   $695.00. (1620020)

This Majestic Mighty Monarch of the Air (Stein 5LA5- Slusser 250) has wonderful styling with its dual wrap around grille louvers, reverse glass slide rule dial, and bullet knobs. This set is in wonderful condition with no cracks or chips and still retains its original Bakelite sheen. I don't recall the repair history, but it plays excellent when tested. 11-1/2"W x 6-1/2"H x 7"D.  $295.00. (1620018)

National SW-3 "Thrill Box" with A-B Power Supply (1931)

I've seen a few of these National "Thrill Boxes" through the years. Most would consider this the first real Short Wave radio available to the public. What is so impressive about this set is that it comes with the very rare National Velvet-AB Type 5880 power supply, and both the SW-3 and the power supply work! Usually, if you can find one of the SW3s, you need to build a power supply and wind some coils yourself. I'll note that the bottom left knob is a replacement, but other than that, it is all original and well taken care of. This set has been tested by my Ham Tech Friend Alex (AL2Q) and comes with four sets of coils. I'm not sure if I have ever seem another working set with original power supply and coils. 9-1/2"W x 9"H x 7-1/2"D.  $795.00. (1620007)

Philco 49-901 "Secretary" (1949)

Here is a one of a kind radio design! This Philco "Secretary" was meant to set under a desk, and the on/off, and volume could be adjusted by turning the "Kick Wheel" with your foot. By pressing the "Kick Wheel" you could scan through the six preset stations. As you did this, the pilot lamp on the front would change from green to orange to purple to white to blue to red to show you which of the preset stations you were on. Presets are adjusted by setscrews on the bottom of the radio. I've seen a couple dozen of these in my 40+ years of collecting. I've owned four, and this is the best. This set is in wonderful condition with no cracks or chips. There is some paint loss to the top right of the speaker to the left of the "Kick Wheel" for obvious reasons. The electrolytic capacitors and line cord were recently replaced by my Tech Friend Tom, and it plays well. 10-1/2"W x 9-1/2"D x 5-1/2"H.  $295.00. (1620012)

Radio Craftsmen "Kitchenaire" (1946)

Here is one I'll bet you have never seen. This Radio Craftsmen "Kitchenaire" is one of only two I've ever seen in person. The other was really beat, and this one is not perfect. I don't think many were made, and what were led a pretty hard life in kitchen areas. It could be wall mounted, but I suspect most sat on the counter and held salt, pepper, and spices on its left and right glass shelves. This set came from the amazing collection I purchased at an Auburn, Maine Doctor's estate. He only collected the best to be had of each radio. This one is in great shape with the exception of the glass plate around the Volume control as can be seen in the pictures, and a small edge chip on the bottom left glass shelf. I doubt if you will ever find another--period. Set played well when tested. Would look right at home in any 40s or 50s styled kitchen. 22-1/2"W x 11"H x 7"D.  $395.00. (1620022)

RCA 75X17 "Chinese" Motif (1939)

I have seen at least 100 RCA Chinese motif radios in my 40+ years of collecting. They came in black (most common), red (difficult to find), and white (rare). I have personally owned at least a dozen sets, almost all were black. As I recall it, they were hand painted at the RCA factory prior to assembly, and no two are alike. I kept the best one of each of the three variants of these radios. This black variant is the most common. The radio has no cracks or chips. There is light wear to the highest relief of the painting, and as I look close, there is a small hairline between the volume knob and the 160 on the dial. Tom Romano of Tom's Antique Radio & TV repaired this one for me in 2007 or 2008. On test while I sit here, it played well for me. It took a lot of years to get one of each of these sets. If you'd like the set of three before someone buys an individual, $1,195 will buy all three. 10"W x 8"H x 7-1/2"D.  $295.00. (1620024)

Tom Romano of Tom's Antique Radio & TV repaired this one for me in 2007. On test while I sit here, it played well for me. It took a lot of years to get one of each of these sets.

If you look around, you can find the plain brown or black sets without pushbuttons, but this mottled brown/Walnut Bakelite with Taupe Plaskon grille and knobs with pushbutton station selection is the absolute King of his designs. This set is in wonderful condition with no cracks or chips and still retains its original back. The electrolytic capacitors were recently replaced by my Tech Friend Tom, and it plays well. 11"W x 8"H x 7-1/2"D.  $895.00. (1620001)

NEW!

RCA "Tubehead" Cameo Doll (1927)

I've seen a couple dozen of these "Tubeheads," and I don't normally buy this early stuff, but this one was by far the best original I had ever seen. This 16" tall store display doll was made by the Cameo Doll Company of New York City, and still has the original Cameo sticker on the bottom of the left foot. The design for this was done by Joseph Kallus, a famous 20s and 30s doll designer. The design was inspired by Maxwell Parish. The doll has crazing on his shirt, and paint chips around the bottom of the shirt. There is a hairline across his face, and paint wear to his hair. The strings that hold the arms and legs together are good, That said, I don't think you can buy a better original at any price.  $995.00. (1620016)

Silvertone 6177 (1939)

Here is another great Machine Age design! This Silvertone Bullet is the smallest of the Bullet radio designs. I believe Detrola made these for Sears to market under the Silvertone brand. The shiny mottled brown Bakelite cabinet has no cracks or chips, and still retains its original back and internal antenna. This set was repaired by my old tech friend Tom Romano of Tom's Antique Radio & TV back in 2002 before he passed away. It still plays well when tested. 9"W x 5"H x 4-1/2"D.  $395.00. (1620003)

Stewart-Warner 07-5B3Q "Dionne Quints" Motif (Sr. Varsity Style, 1939)

I have seen less than ten Stewart-Warner Dionne Quints radios in my 40+ years of collecting. I have personally owned five of these, as my Mother was an avid Dionne Quint collector. We actually vacationed in Canada, and met one of the Quints when I was in my early teens. The five Dionnes were the first set of quintuplets to survive birth, and were a huge sensation in Canada and the USA in the early 30s. I kept one of each of the three variants of these radios. This 13"W x 7-1/2"H x 7"D five-tube "Senior Varsity" variant is the rarest, and this is the only one I have ever personally seen. The original $19.95 sale price is still penciled on the back. There are no cracks or chips, but there are numerous paint chips, and touch up to the paint on this radio. Again, it is the only one I've ever seen. Quint decals are 95+%. I do not know the repair history of this set, but on test, it plays with a light hum, and picks up a number of stations. It took a lot of years to get one of each of these sets. If you'd like the set of three before someone buys an individual, $1,995 will buy all three.  $995.00. (1620011)

This is the best of the three I've owned, but has a chip in the bottom, and a sliver missing on the back right lower edge, with a hairline on the bottom. I can see where touch-up has been done to some paint chips on the radio. Quint decals are 95+%. I believe Tom Romano of Tom's Antique Radio & TV also repaired this one for me around ten years ago. I don't see his repair invoice, but the caps are replaced. On test while I sit here, it played well for me. It took a lot of years to get one of each of these sets.

Treasure Chest Radio (early 1930s)

There are a number of antique radios that look like treasure chests, but I believe this is the earliest, and best of them all. I have seen three of these sets in my 40+ years of collecting. The maker is unknown, and this set is the best of the three. This metal cased set uses two 224A tubes, a 235, 80 rectifier (280 printed on socket), and a 47 output tube (247 printed on socket). So you know this was early 1930s. This set was restored in 2004 by Radio Attic's own John Hartman of Antique Electric Radios. As a tribute to John's skills, it plays well when tested. 12"W x 8"H x 7-1/2"D.  $395.00. (1620004)

Western Electric 10-D Horn Speaker (1921)

Here is a very hard to find Western Electric Loud Speaking Telephone Outfit (Horn Speaker) from 1921. One of the first, if not the first horn speaker. The patent dates on the horn are Jan 18, 1921, Oct 11, 1921, and Dec 13, 1921. The 6-1/2" tall by 5-1/2" diameter base/driver is in excellent condition. The entire Speaker is 30-1/2" tall, and the horn is 14-1/4" in diameter. The horn is in original condition with some edge chips, bumps, and a CR lightly scratched in the back. Most people would buff this up with black shoe polish, and it would look awesome, but I like to leave things as they are. I'll leave the polish up to you. At 96 years old, the horn speaker works well.  $295.00. (1620023)

Zenith 3R (1923)

I'll admit that I am not a big collector of the very early battery sets, but I have a ton of respect for Marconi Era Radio History. This 1923 Zenith four-tube radio is right up there with the best of that history. It is serial #337959. Now, anyone who knows this set knows that the pot metal knob shafts on this set lock up tighter than a bull's ***, but they are all good on this set. The previous owner worked on this set, and all knobs turn as they should. You can see in the pictures that the two right lower knobs have been replaced, and the rest are all original. There is a coating of what I believe is shellac on the cabinet and front panel that I honestly don't know if it is original or done many years ago. I've only seen two or three of these in my 40+ years of collecting. Radio is untested, but I would not be surprised if it works if you care to try it. This is a seldom offered piece of early radio history. 23-1/2"W x 10"H x 9-1/2"D.  $895.00. (1620006)

Zenith 6-D-116 AM/SW (1939)

Here is another excellent "Big Black Dial" AM/Shortwave Zenith. This radio is in great shape. If Snow White ever owned a tube radio, this is it! It was repainted by someone, to match an original Zenith color, but I don't know who. The work is excellent! The set looks as pure as the driven snow. The three zenith "Z" knobs look too good to be original and are probably reproductions. The white Zenith "Z" dial pointer appears to have been repainted with the cabinet. This is one stately beautiful set! There are no chips or cracks in the cabinet, but there are a couple edge paint chips on the back of the set. My Tech friend Tom replaced the electrolytic caps and the line cord, and it plays well. I pick up plenty of AM, and some short wave chatter on the 1.6 to 5.0 MHz band on a short wire in my cellar. An outdoor antenna would be needed for short wave DXing. 13-1/2"W x 8"H x 7-1/2"D.  $395.00. (1620019)

Here is a Zenith "Big Dial" six-tube AM & Shortwave Radio in excellent original finish. The fronts of these radios are done in a faux woodgrain, and most are not in great shape, but this one is an exception. This six-tube radio has AM, 2.0-8.0 MHz and 8-24 MHz shortwave. This set has a lot going for it. Big Gold dial, large brass escutcheon, four "Z" Zenith knobs, five pushbutton presets, and curved left side with molded trim over the speaker. This set is in wonderful condition with one chip repair on the left back edge, and one chipped "Z" knob. There are a couple marks on the top, but truly exception shape for this set. Tom Romano of Tom's Antique Radio & TV repaired this one for me in 2005. On test while I sit here, it played AM well for me, and I can pick up Short wave chatter. You'll need a outdoor antenna if you want to DX shortwave. 18"W x 11-1/2"H x 9"D.  $395.00. (1620021)

Zenith 7G605 Trans-Oceanic Clipper "Bomber" (1942)

I've owned at least a dozen of these Zenith Trans-Oceanic "Bomber" sets. Frankly, most of them had taken a beating over the years, but this is the best of them all. It came from the estate of a Maine doctor who wanted the best available, and cost was no issue to him. My son says it's time for someone else to enjoy it. Almost everyone knows the rich history of this first Zenith portable shortwave radio. This is serial #T886394, in the last 1,000 of the 25,000 "Bombers" made before Zenith was forced to stop production to assist in the War effort. I recently took this to my Tech Friend Tom to have it checked out. He said it was previously restored, resoldered a bad connection, and sent it back. I could pick up AM and shortwave. It is not perfect, but it is the best I've ever seen. I've found that those who collect these either just display them or restore and tweak them back to original specifications. The choice is yours. 17"W x 10"H x 7"D.  $995.00. (1620002)

About Radioorphanage

I started Radioorphanage about 35 years ago, and have purchased, collected, and sold thousands of tube and transistor radios during that time.  My philosophy has always been to keep the best of each model radio I acquire.  Some radios I've owned dozens of, and when I acquired a new one, it would be condition compared to the other one I had.  The better one was kept, and the lesser one was sold.  It is now time to sell the better ones.

I have been an avid collector of Deco, Golden Age, Machine Age, and Mid Century Modern tube radios.  My first radio love was for 50s and 60s transistor sets.  I am far more interested in the radio's physical condition, styling and design than I am about the complexity of the circuit.  Frankly, I don't listen to these much, and I doubt if you do either.  In general, I like to have them play, but as a retired EE, I get no pleasure in radio repair.  My friend Tom does any repairs for me.

Hopefully in the 20 years I have sold on eBay, you have purchase from me, and know I've been the best antique radio packer on eBay.  Check my 5000+ positive feedbacks.  But, over the past years, eBay has changed.  Frankly, as to antique radios, it has become a pretty poor flea market where you have to wade through 100s of pieces of crap to find something worth bidding on.  My items available on Radio Attic will not be offered on eBay.

I've known Steve Adams, Radio Attic, and at least a dozen of the current sellers on Radio Attic for quite a while.  I respect the quality of the site, sellers, and the items they present here.  I will strive to do equal to or better over the next few years.  My goal is to have between 40 and 50 radios available at all times in my corner of the Radio Attic.

For the past six years I have been the President of the New England Antique Radio Club (NEARC).  I will step down at the end of 2018 to concentrate on selling part of my collection.  Marty Bunis started NEARC about 30 years ago, as well as published a number of Tube and Transistor Radio Collector price guides.  Many of the radios pictured in these price guides were from my collection, and some will be offered on the Radio Attic in the future.

Terms:

1) All items are retested at packing-just prior to shipping.  I want you to be happy when you receive it.

2) Shipping and insurance are additional to the price shown.  I prefer USPS Priority Mail, but will ship UPS if requested.

3) PayPal, MO, or Check for payment.  MOs and Checks must clear my bank before you item is shipped -- no exceptions.

4) If you want your item quickly, PayPal is the way to go.  99% of my eBay sales were shipped within 24 hours of the PayPal payment.  I will try to do as well here.

5) The items I sell are 50 to 100+ years old and most carry some inherent dangers with them if you don't understand what you are doing.  If you don't understand these items, join a local Antique Radio Club.  If you don't know where your closest radio club is, let me know, and I will find it for you.  If you don't know how to push the tubes down in their sockets or what an antenna is for, you probably should not purchase antique radios.

6) There are no stupid questions.  Please ask questions or for more pictures if you have questions.  I'm in this for the long haul, not a quick buck.  I want you to be happy with your purchase.  I'm not a rent to own store.  Once I sell a radio, I don't have much interest in getting it back.  If there is a real problem, I'll work with you to solve it.  Please let me know within a week of receiving it.  If you just have buyer's remorse, or don't understand what you purchased, that is your problem.

7) Enjoy Antique Radio collecting, and remember what it said at the beginning of my Home Page: "Of course you can find cheaper radios! That is easy.  But, ask yourself- at the end of the day, and in the future, will you be happier with a pile of cheaper radios, or a few nice investment grade radios?  The wise man will choose the latter!"  Bruce Phillips Radioorphanage.
