I acquire radios based on their condition and originality.  I do not have experience in restoring the electronics, so if a radio is working it was that way when I got it.  I pack extremely carefully and use Fed Ex mostly to save you shipping costs.  If you'd like extra pictures, please let me know and I'll gladly send them to you; just e-mail me by clicking on my name link above, or by sending an e-mail to radiobarn@gmail.com.

I accept PayPal, cashier's checks, money orders & personal checks (must clear first).   I do not normally charge additional "handling/packing" fees.

 

 

Emerson 418 "Bullseye" w/Ingraham Cabinet (1941)

Emerson 418 "Bullseye" w/Ingraham Cabinet (1941)

Offered is an outstanding example of Ingraham craftsmanship that was probably done by their more experienced woodworkers. This has been called the "Humpback" and "Pig Snout" but I'd rather refer to it as a precursor to the Eames and Mid-Century era with its rounded corners at top and bottom. The single piece wood grille is a show stopper and is usually showing scrapes and dents; this example is in superb condition, as is the entire case. The whole cabinet is tight and in the nicest cosmetic condition I've seen. The pin striping on the left, top and right sides is totally intact and tight. The stunning and intricate Art Deco dial is excellent, the dial pointer straight with no tarnishing of the metal or flaking of the red paint. The bottom Ingraham label (a $15-20 value alone) is intact and not bent. As for the sound, it's as full and mellow as you'd expect a nearly 80-year old musical wood instrument to be with very nice volume and selectivity and clean sound. An impressive set; you'll be hard pressed to find one in nicer condition. 14-1/2"W x 9-1/2"H x 7"D.  $445.00. (0910237)

 

Firestone S-7403-7 w/Ingraham Cabinet

Firestone S-7403-7 w/Ingraham Cabinet

Here's an impressive table set sporting the craftsmanship of Emerson's Ingraham line, from the concave grille to the inlaid pin striping on three sides. A wonderful piano finish reveals a beautiful wood grain throughout. This radio plays with very good volume and selectivity on the AM band. The pin striping is fully intact and tight, the colorful Art Deco dial face lights up brightly and metal dial pointer is straight. The original knobs have felt backing to protect the case and the middle "tone" knob does work, switching from a bass to treble sound. The grille bars have a great cut-out pattern and are in excellent condition while the back retains the original Masonite cover. The case has no gouges and just a few very tiny dings and minor scratching to the piano finish, the dings essentially confined to the top back edge. There is a switch to select the shortwave band in the back, but I doubt one will find any stations nowadays. 14-1/2"W x 8-3/4"H x 8"D.  $255.00. (0910236)

 

Philco PT-61 "Pagoda" (1939)

Philco PT-61 "Pagoda" (1939)

A unique style, this Philco was originally marketed as the "Jewel Case" but its resemblance to Buddhist temples in Southeast Asia has resulted in being called the "Pagoda" in recent times. When played, the local stations come in loud and clear; when turned down, there is just the very slightest bit of hum. The Transitone dial is sharp and lights up, while the grille cloth is tight. Several woods were combined on the case: an old Philco ad claims the woods used included Aspen and Mexican Accra, which must be such a rare wood that a Google search turns up nothing. The Philco knobs are same style that normally appear in white or black, but the company produced a butterscotch color for this model only to better complement the wood colors. The cabinet has a wonderful mellow appearance from decades of aging, the slotted cutouts on the front at upper left and right are crisp and sharp (they are often chipped from their exposure). The top can warp but is flush and tight here. The original PT-61 label is about 90% intact on the bottom. This is one of the few examples to have a sharp contrasting black finish on the base.  $340.00. (0910235)
