If you like mid-century industrial design, this is for you. It dates from the late 1940's.

General Electric XB333-D2 Portable

McClure Picturephone (Model N)

McClure Picturephone (Model N)

This unit dates from about 1961. It is in excellent original condition and was used by Ford Motor company. Unfortunately the Ford tapes were already sold separately. There is a copy of a prospectus for Ford common stock dated 1962 that I found inside. Included are a rather humorous 1962 record on investment planning, the owners manual and other packing literature. The lid acts as a screen for the projector. It has three speeds (33-1/3, 45 & 78) and operates well on all three. The projector lights up and there is audio. It will need a new Astatic 85D-1 cartridge to be fully operational. A super clean McClure inside and out.  $44.99. (0260538)

 

McMurdo-Silver Masterpiece III Console Radio

McMurdo-Silver Masterpiece III Console Radio

Advertised in 1934 as a forward design with a round dial which was a new advancement at that time. This radio was in a private collection for 25 years with no cabinet. the receiver is all original. The cover and face panel have been re-chromed. The balance of the chassis retains the original chrome. There is minor surface corrosion, but as you can see it still displays well. The chassis has been serviced and cleaned. All controls and moving parts were lubricated. The 12" speaker was used with early Scott sets and it is not original to the radio. The power supply is from an early Scott Allwave 12. It was completely rebuilt to match the one used with the Masterpiece III. It uses the correct tubes and connections for an original look. The cabinet is a custom design made from a period correct cabinet, but not an original McMurdo. The radio plays well and a rare opportunity to purchase this hard to find set.  $3,995.00. (0260570)

 

Micro- Vox MV-200 with box

Micro- Vox MV-200 with box

Made by Mercury Electronic Laboratories, the Micro-Vox was made from 1949 until the early 1950s. It is a pocket sized hand held AM transmitter with microphone. This wireless remote microphone would work in conjunction with any AM radio with a range up to 75 feet. There are some marks on one side caused by decades of storage next to the wiring. Otherwise it is in as new condition inside and out with no cracks or chips. It is a rare find with the original box and instructions. The box has been written on and is missing a piece of one flap.

Motorola VT-71 Television (1947)

Motorola VT-71 Television (1947)

When I purchased the TV I noticed that there was a meter attached to the left side. The meter was made by the Nuclear Research Corp. I remember my parents having a thing about sitting to close to the TV in the 50's and 60's. At that time they felt that sitting too close could expose you to harmful levels of radiation. In this case someone went so far as to monitor the radiation. I believe there was a white plastic piece that went around the picture tube to take up the corner space and the back is missing. Otherwise it appears complete. It is really in excellent original condition. There is finish wear from aging, but no veneer loss or damage. The reverse painted plastic face is perfect and the set displays great as is. These were made in 1947 making it among the first generation of production TV's. The power cord is not original, but I was able to test it. It is functional and had good sound quality, but only a bright snowy picture. In addition the meter is working and shows that the set does release a small level of radiation. A great piece of early TV history. 16-1/2"W x 9-1/2"H x 16-1/2"D.  $249.99. (0260513)

 

Packard Bell 551 (1948)

Packard Bell 551 (1948)

This rare 1948 portable was offered with brown Bakelite trim. The radio was sold in Bakelite, Plaskon or wood cabinet with Bakelite or Plaskon trim. The dial is just made of thick paper. I could only find a couple of images of this radio on line. There may have been a thin possibly Plaskon frame around the dial. From what I can find I do not believe there was ever a clear dial cover. As shown the dial is intact, but is only fair at best. The Plaskon trim is excellent with no cracks or chips. The cabinet has been refinished, but otherwise it is all original including the grille cloth. The chassis has been serviced and it plays well. 10-1/2"W x 8"H x 6-1/2"D.  $199.00. (0260599)

 

Philco 20 "Baby Grand" Cathedral

Philco 20 "Baby Grand" Cathedral

This Philco "Baby Grand" met demand of the Depression with a more compact radio with style. This example is a rare find with the best original finish I've seen on this model. The grille cloth is the correct replacement. The tubes were replaced over the years. A jack was added, but then removed and plugged at the base of the chassis label. Otherwise it has had very little done and still retains the original cloth covered cord. I cleaned the chassis and the tubes all test strong. The radio still plays and receives several stations with strong volume, but the volume control is fussy. I'm offering it as found, a bench mark survivor and the restoration up to the new owner.  $279.00. (0260650)

 

Philco 34B Cathedral (1934)

Philco 34B Cathedral (1934)

This is the hard to find early model 34B made in 1934. The 34B was offered again in 1935, but with a different cabinet. This is a farm radio or battery set, and a real time capsule. With the exception of the grille cloth it is all original. As shown the chassis appears to have never been serviced. The set was operational 15 years ago, but I'm offering it unrestored as found. It's in excellent condition. 18"H x 15"W x 10-1/2"D.  $249.00. (0260649)

 

Philco 49-506

Philco 49-506

This is the model given the name "Flying Wedge" which was also offered in Bakelite. It has been refinished and shows beautifully. The cardboard back is missing, but otherwise as nice as you will find. The chassis has been cleaned and serviced. The radio plays great. 12"W x 7-1/2"H x 7"D.  $199.00. (0260652)

 

Philco 81 Jr. Cathedral

Philco 81 Jr. Cathedral

This Philco dates from 1932 to 33. The more common variation was offered without shortwave and sold as a model 80. The model 81 has an extra knob for the SW band. I'm offering the set as found. The original finish was removed and given a light clear coat at some point. The cabinet is solid with no veneer damage. The chassis retains its originality and much nicer than you normally find them. The perfect candidate to restore as you wish or enjoy as is. Has the original knobs, escutcheon and grille cloth showing some wear. The speaker cone looks good. I checked the tubes, but otherwise the chassis has not been serviced. With a long wire I got several AM stations with strong reception. 14"H x 11"W x 8"D.  $169.99. (0260639)

 

Philco 511 w/ 211 Speaker (1928)

Philco 511 w/ 211 Speaker (1928)

Still known as the Philadelphia Storage Battery Co., Philco started the 1928 season promoting a line of AC powered radios including this model with matching 211 speaker. Despite the obvious flaws this is the best unrestored example I've seen. The lid had lots of scratches. I was able to get a good match on the brown paint and touched up some of the worst. That was the only thing I did to this radio. The original paint still retains a high gloss shine and overall the radio displays well. The original grille is damaged, but otherwise the speaker is in beautiful condition. The interior is spotless and all the tubes are globe type with the exception of the 80 tube. All the tubes check good and the radio plays, but with low volume. I'm offering this in as found condition to enjoy and display in original condition or to restore.  $349.99. (0260612)

 

Philips 960AS Cathedral (1933)

Philips 960AS Cathedral (1933)

Made in Czechoslovakia, this wonderful radio is a decorative marriage between wood and Bakelite. The grille cloth has been replaced, but it retains an excellent original finish that is hard to duplicate. These were designed to operate on 220V. It appears that an electronic restoration was started. I do not believe that the speaker and transformer are original to the set. Otherwise it seems to be all intact. I have not tested or serviced the radio so it is sold electronically as is. This is a rare find and a stunning example of European design ready to display and enjoy. 19-1/2"H x 15-1/2"W x 7"D.  $599.99. (0260546)

 

Ritz Nabisco 411A Cathedral Replica

NEW!

Ritz Nabisco 411A Cathedral Replica

This AM/FM reproduction looks like an Atwater Kent 206. The radio was a Nabisco promotional item awarded as an incentive to supermarket owners.

The cassette player works and the radio plays well on both AM and FM. The dial lights up and tunes like a vintage radio. 13-1/2"H x 9-1/2"W x 8-1/2"D.  $79.00. (0260658)

 

Silvertone 8000 (1949)

Silvertone 8000 (1949)

This 1949 Silvertone is a real cutie measuring only 7"W x 6"H x 5"D. I had to repaint the sides and achieved nearly an exact match to the original 66 year old paint. I was also able to preserve the original graphics that are still in good condition. It retains the original grille cloth and knobs, both in excellent condition. The chassis has been fully serviced and plays well. A great example of post War radio design.  $195.00. (0260626)

 

Stewart Warner 9164 (1952)

Stewart Warner 9164 (1952)

This may be a rare variation of this classic set. The cabinet is a rather flexible solid black plastic. I could not find one in any of the books or on line. It retains a very high gloss shine. There is a crack on the bottom that starts at the back edge as shown. Otherwise there is only minor surface wear and scratches. It had four of the five original SW tubes. Two were replaced and I will include those tubes if you wish. The chassis has been serviced and plays well. The dial lights up and the clock keeps good time. This little black beauty measures 11-1/2"W x 7"H x 5-1/2"D.  $199.99. (0260543)

 

Transistor Radios

Transistor Radios

Both radios are made in Japan with no helpful identifying marks or model numbers. The two band set is 7-1/2"W x 4-3/4"H x 2"D with no cracks or chips. The antenna is in great shape and telescopes to 33-1/2". The four "C" cell battery compartment is perfect. When tested it worked on both AM and SW, but the tone lamp switch does not seem functional. The little six transistor set has a cut in the base of the back. Otherwise there are no cracks or chips. The grille has an indentation and the emblem is gone. I tested it with a 9v battery and it plays. It measures 3"H x 2-1/2"W x 1"D.  $99.00. (0260621)

 

Unknown Tombstone (1930s)

Unknown Tombstone (1930s)

I've owned this set for many years and have never seen another one. It has wonderful mid 1930's style with a round dial and a very attractive cabinet design. I think the knobs are original. The grille cloth is the correct replacement. The cabinet has been refinished and nicely complements this great little set. The four tube TRF chassis has been serviced including a new cloth covered power cord and it plays well. Please contact me if you know who manufactured this radio so it can be properly documented in the Radio Attic Archives. If you like rare radios this one is for you. 14"H x 11"W x 8"D.  $398.00. (0260641)

 

Western Air Patrol 59

NEW!

Western Air Patrol 59

I could not find any documentation regarding this radio. So I will say it is rare. It was sold through Western Auto Supply probably in the late 1930's. The cabinet was cracked on the bottom to the base of the dial opening. The repair was reinforced inside and can not be seen on the outer cabinet. The chassis is clean, complete and all original. The set has been serviced and plays well. 9-1/2"W x 6"H x 5"D.  $169.00. (0260660)

 

Zenith 7C05 AM/FM

The chassis is like new. You will notice to the right of the speaker is an electrostatic tweeter. I only replaced one tube and the radio plays well on both AM and FM bands. All controls work as they should. A nice mid century radio. 15"W x 9"H x 8-1/2"D.  $99.00. (0260659)
