Philco 40-155

Philco 40-155

I absolutely love this set as its a super receiver. This set has a built in aerial, so no antenna to string up unless you want to. This set pulls in lots of stations across the dial on all three bands. This Philco has its original finish and displays very well. I will always try to save an original finish whenever I can, and this one looks very nice. This chassis has had a complete electronic restoration, replacing all paper caps, filter caps, out of spec resistors, etc. These sets are terrific players and lots of fun to play with. The 1940 and 1941 Philco sets are some of the best performing sets I've ever owned, and this one is beautiful. 18-1/2"W x 10-1/2"H x 12"D.  $349.00. (0620210)

 

Zenith 6-S-128 Tombstone (1936)

Zenith 6-S-128 Tombstone (1936)

These big Zenith sets are a hit with everyone, whether a collector or someone who wants that one great radio in their display in their home. This set has received a full electronic restoration, replacing all filter and paper caps, out of spec resistors, etc. The cabinet was refinished in a beautiful, glossy lacquer finish just like it came with from the factory. The grille cloth is an exact reproduction of the original. This set has BC band and two shortwave bands, and receives beautifully, playing loud and clear on each selection. Most people are amazed how a solid black dial lights up so colorful, which is one of the many features of the sets that make them so collectable. This set would make a great addition to any high-end collection or perfect for one who wants that one grand set to display in the parlor or man cave. 22"H x 17"W x 12"D.  $795.00. (0620209)

 

Philco 18 Cathedral (1933)

Philco 18 Cathedral (1933)

Less than 6000 of these sets were produced, and you rarely ever see this model or model 44. This set was expensive and was produced in the worst years of the Depression. Some of the best features of this set are the Shadow Tuning Meter and push-pull output which sounds phenomenal. This set still retains its original finish and displays very well (please excuse the wax I left in the cracks, white stuff; I will get that off). The chassis was restored replacing out of spec resistors and all paper and filter caps. The grille cloth is an exact reproduction. This set is a beautiful original and rare on top of it all. The tuning meter works great and this set plays loud and clear, a great performer. This radio has BC and one shortwave band. Don't miss out on this rare set with its original finish. 18"H x 15-1/2"W x 11"D.   $495.00. (0620208)

 

Zenith 7-S-323 (1939)

Zenith 7-S-323 (1939)

This is a big and impressive set that has all the same advantages of a console wrapped up in a table top set. This set still retains its original finish and grille cloth. The chassis look like new, as well as the 8" speaker. The chassis has been electronically restored replacing all caps and a new tuning eye installed. This set plays loud and clear on all three bands and is the nicest example of this set you will find. These sets don't come up very often and are highly coveted by collectors. Large at 22"W x 14-1/2"H x 11-1/2"D.  $899.00. (0620207)

 

Emerson AM-187 "Pagoda" (1937)

Emerson AM-187 "Pagoda" (1937)

Here is one of the most unusual and seldom seen repwood sets made. These sets were antiqued by hand from the factory; Silver leaf was used as well as traces of red and shadowing. These sets were expensive, as this is the best performing repwood set I've ever owned. Most repwood sets were cheap radios that did not perform well. There isn't much info out there on these as there weren't many made, and very seldom does one come up for sale. The information was given to me by an avid Emerson collector, and a collector that collects nothing but repwood sets. This set still retains its original wood back, with its model number stamped in it. The chassis is clean and rust free and the speaker is flawless. The chassis was electronically restored, cleaning all pots and switches, changing of all filter and paper caps, new cloth line cord, etc. This set has a lot of volume and picks up a lot of stations across the dial. The set has both BC and SW bands. This is a very unique set and I've had it for ten years; the last one I've seen for sale was this one. 14-1/2"W x 9"H x 7"D.  $595.00. (0620206)

 

RCA 65X2 ( 1946)

RCA 65X2 ( 1946)

I love the styling on these late forties RCA Bakelite radios. The Art Deco lines of these sets are very appealing to collectors, and these sets perform very well with their built-in loop antennas. This set has been cleaned and electronically restored, replacing the filter caps and all paper caps. This set is BC only and plays loud and clear, picking up lots of stations across the dial. This set still retains its original back, and looks great. This little RCA will make a great addition to any parlor as its great styling and bright dial makes it stand out. 11-1/2"W x 7"H x 6-1/2"D.  $135.00. (0620205)

 

RCA 45EY-26 "Alice in Wonderland" 45rpm Phonograph (1951)

RCA 45EY-26 "Alice in Wonderland" 45rpm Phonograph (1951)

Anyone that grew up in the fifties remembers these little little 45 record players/changers when 45 records were all the rave. Everyone wanted one! This is the rare kids version which was the same as the adult players, except the color scheme, decals, and the kids' version had a metal turntable instead of plastic. The amp has been electronically restore, replacing caps, resistors, etc. The record changer was disassembled, cleaned and lubricated. The idler wheel, cycling cam, rubber motor mounts, rubber bushings under the turntable replaced. The cap assembly was disassembled and cleaned. The platform has been replaced but the cabinet retains its original paint and decals. These Alice in Wonderland versions are scarce, and prized by collectors. These record players are expensive to restore so don't miss out on this one. It plays and sounds great with its two-stage tube amplifier. The cartridge and needle was replaced with a stereo cartridge that was bridged into mono, so you can play stereo 45s as well. You can stack 12 or more 45 records on the spindle at a time. These are beautiful little machines that sound awesome. 10-1/2"W x 5"H x 8-1/2"D (cabinet).  $479.00. (0620200)

 

FADA 740 (1947)

FADA 740 (1947)

This little FADA has a beautiful little cabinet with lots of Deco lines. The cabinet has been polished to a beautiful shine. The electronics have been restored replacing filter caps, all paper caps, and resistors that are out of tolerance. This is a beautiful little set that doesn't take up much space. 8-1/2"W x 6"H x 5"D.  $149.00. (0620199)

 

Emerson AX-212 (1938)

Emerson AX-212 (1938)

This is one beautiful and popular little set. These came in in walnut or maple; this example is a beautiful burl walnut. All caps have been replaced and the set still retains its original resistor line cord and is safe to use. The cabinet was refinished in a beautiful lacquer finish, and looks just as it did in 1938. These sets are very collectable and you wont find a better example than this one. Note the beautiful green inlays across the top and down the sides; they don't get any more Deco than these little sets. 9"W x 5-1/2"H x 4"D.  $649.00. (0620197)

 

Westinghouse (Canada) 185 Tombstone (1934)

Westinghouse (Canada) 185 Tombstone (1934)

Here is a radio you don't see every day. This big Canadian set is built like a tank and is a fine receiver in all aspects. The cabinet is absolutely beautiful, with its fine lines and gorgeous inlays. The cabinet has a hand rubbed lacquer finish using original stain and toners to bring his old girl back to 1934. The chassis is as beautiful as the cabinet, cleaned and polished to look new again, and electronically restored to play new again. This six tube set plays great on both BC and SW bands and has all Canadian tubes. 19-1/2"H x 17-1/2"W x 12"W.  $499.00. (0620137)

 

Majestic 371 Cathedral (1933)

Majestic 371 Cathedral (1933)

This little Majestic is a set you don't run across often. This paticular set has its original finish, and all of its paper labels attached in the cabinet. It still has most of the original style frosted Majestic tubes in it. The set still has its original line cord as well. The set has been electronically restored and plays great. The chassis is very clean in this set as well as the speaker, all excellent. If you are looking for an all original set then this is the one. These sets are very desirable and hard to come by. 12-1/2"W x 11-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D.  $479.00. (0620117)

 

Zenith 6-D-315 (1938)

Zenith 6-D-315 (1938)

This little Deco Bakelite Zenith has one of the most unique cabinets Zenith ever made. The 1938 Zenith lineup had many Deco cabinets. This paticular set has the Wavemagnet loop antenna back which makes it fairly scarce, unlike the 6-D-311 which used the same cabinet without the Wavemagnet antenna and carry handle. The cabinet on this radio is super. The chassis is very clean and has been electronically restored; plays loud and clear. The original speaker was reconed by "The Speaker Shop" in Lima, Ohio, so no rattles, just good clear sound. This set is highly collectable and will definitely be a good addition to any collection. 11"W x 7"H x 8-1/2"D.   $369.00. (0620110)

 

Zenith 6-D-516

Zenith 6-D-516

Philco 41-226 (1941)

Philco 41-226 (1941)

Here is one of Philco's rarest and most collectable pre-war sets. The left side is fluted giving the set a very extrodinary Deco look, and made this radio known as "The Sled." The set also has beautiful veneer inlays as well. This radio is sporting its original finish, which is in super condition (better than the pic). The chassis has been electronically restored and is super clean condition. This rare little set has minimal warpage on the plastic grille, which are always warped to some degree on these sets. The radio plays loud and clear on both bands and will make a great addition to any collection. 13-1/2"W x 8-1/2"H x 6"D.  $299.00. (0620073)

 

Belmont 5D128 (1946)

Belmont 5D128 (1946)

This little Belmont is as Deco as they come and is a personal favorite of mine. It has its original paint and decal; it also has its original back which is rare. The cabinet is in excellent condition with no cracks or chips, and the dial and dial lens are perfect. The chassis is clean and has been serviced. I listen to this radio often, as it has great reception, above average in fact. This is one of Belmont's most collectable and valuable sets, and it's rare to find one in this condition. A great addition to the best of radio collections. 11"w x 7"H x 5-1/2"D.  $299.00. (0620062)
