After twenty years of collecting radios, I'm selling most of my personal collection.  The majority of my radios are made of Catalin, Plaskon, or other plastics, and there are some exceptional wooden sets.  Quite a few of the radios are hard-to-find models or versions that I targeted for collecting, and am now wanting to pass on to other collectors.  Hope you'll enjoy them as much as I have.  Please click here to read my seller's terms.
 

 

Addison 5 "Courthouse" (1942)

NEW!

Addison 5 "Courthouse" (1942)

A beautiful wood version of the Addison 5 Courthouse that looks so good, it can hold its own right next to the Catalin version! The case has been professionally refinished by Gary Marvin, and looks even better in person than it does in the photos. The radio turns on and buzzes, but is not working. This wooden version is not readily available, and would be a great addition to any collection.  $375.00. (1690008)

 

Bendix 526 Catalin (1946)

NEW!

Bendix 526 Catalin (1946)

This gorgeously swirled green & black Catalin Bendix radio would be "a wonderful addition to any collection," according to Classic Plastic Radios author John Sideli. He also says this model is "An extremely stylish, successful, and unique design. Dramatic in its use of black and color seldom encountered in Catalin radios." There are no cracks or repairs, and you can tell from the photos this is an excellent example. The electronics are untested, because the cord was cut off before I purchased the radio. There aren't very many green Catalin radios, and I think this is the only one that combines green and black. It's a nice color combination for your display. Shipping for all radios is a flat $45, and this one will almost certainly cost more than that, so I'll cover the difference.  $695.00. (1690003)

 

DeWald 555 "Cash Register" (1939)

NEW!

DeWald 555 "Cash Register" (1939)

One of the fun parts of radio collecting is finding really rare versions of radios. This 1939 DeWald "Cash Register" is certainly a unique design, and even when you do find it, it's usually in brown Bakelite. This is the rare Plaskon version, and the details of the design stand out more in beautiful ivory. There are no cracks, but as with too many Plaskon radios, this one has some stress lines. There's one on the left side that doesn't affect how well it displays, and a couple more on the bottom that don't affect the display at all. The radio turns on and lights up, but doesn't produce audio. Be the only radio collector on your block to have one of these! About 9"W x 9"H x 7"D.  $595.00. (1690002)

 

FADA 652 "Temple" (1945)

NEW!

FADA 652 "Temple" (1945)

This is a great Catalin FADA "Temple" in yellow and red. It's just the way collectors want them, with the original untouched even patina that's formed since 1945. The Catalin has no cracks or repairs. There are some very minor scratches on the bottom. It was sold to me many years ago as all original, and I think it is. The radio is working and brings in the local AM stations with plenty of volume. It's a beautiful radio with the striking yellow & red bringing out the cool design.  $950.00. (1690005)

 

General Electric L-662 "Jewel Box" (1940)

NEW!

General Electric L-662 "Jewel Box" (1940)

General Electric didn't make many Catalin radios, but they made one of the most beautiful! This Jewel Box is a tortoise-shell red with lots of swirling that provides multiple colors in various light. This is an exceptional example of the radio, with no cracks or repairs. The radio works, and picks up several local stations. However, the electronics are not guaranteed, because of age and shipping. We ship to the 48 contiguous state using FedEx ground at a flat rate of $45. This is your chance to add an elegant and uniquely designed radio to your collection.  $1,700.00. (1690001)

 

General Television 5A5 (1947)

NEW!

General Television 5A5 (1947)

When I first started collecting, I visited a long-time collector who had a lot of radios. The one that stood out the most was a dramatic black & white General Television 5A5. So naturally I added this one to my collection as soon as I found it. It has a black Bakelite case, and I believe the trim is made of ivory Plaskon. There are no cracks or repairs. This one lights up and plays with good volume. Surprisingly, there aren't very many black & white radios, so this cute one is a good way to add this color combination to a collection. Small at about 9"W x 6"H x 6"D.  $275.00. (1690004)

 

Grunow 450 (1934)

NEW!

Grunow 450 (1934)

Another completely professionally restored radio, inside and out! This 1934 Grunow Chrome Grille is as nice as they come. The grille has even been re-chromed, and looks perfect! It will look great in your collection! Medium sized tombstone: 13-1/2"H x 9-1/2"W x 7"D.  $395.00. (1690006)

 

Majestic 59 "Studio" (1933)

NEW!

Majestic 59 "Studio" (1933)

One of the premier designs for wooden radios is this 1933 "Studio" 59 by Majestic. It has the elegant look of light wood with black trim and the (for then) very innovative aluminum grille. This is probably one of the finest examples of this model. The wood is the original finish (not refinished) and the black top, bottom, & back have been professionally repainted by Gary Marvin to give the radio a really sharp look. Also, the electronics have been completely restored by Blake Dietze. It's a nice size at 13"H x 10"W x 8"D.  $735.00. (1690007)

Terms:

I normally use PayPal for my transactions, but am open to other methods.  Radios will be sold to the 48 contiguous states.  I use FedEx Ground for packing and shipping, and will use a flat fee of $45 for all radios.  That will not cover most radios, so I'll make up the difference.  If there is ever a charge that comes in significantly below that amount, I'll refund the difference to you.  Also, if you live in Oregon and want to pick up a radio, just let me know.  Descriptions of whether radios work or not are included, but there is no guarantee on electronics, because of age and shipping.  Returns are in keeping with the Radio Attic policy, just contact me if you have a problem and we'll work it out.  I've sold over a hundred radios and never had a return.   Thank you, Phil
