Air Castle "Tulips" Tombstone (1937)

Air Castle "Tulips" Tombstone (1937)

Air Castle was the house brand for the famous Chicago based Spiegel catalog company. They were not a maker, but designed and contracted their products from some of the better factories and contract manufacturers. This happens to be a very rare radio. The radio is never found and very seldom seen. Note the name came from the highly deco cut out grille. The radio is subtly shaped in a slightly curved cabinet. The condition is outstanding with a terrific factory finish, and all of the factory installed parts. You will be delighted with the originality and performance from the six-tube super-het chassis. I bought this at auction out of the famous Mark Stein collection. In forty five years of active collecting, I had never seen another available to own. My technician has done all of the repairs necessary and the radio is a real performer. If you collect deco radios, in fine original condition, you would be hard pressed to find a better set to add to your collection. 16-1/4"H x 13"W x 9"D.  $599.00. (0961008)

 

Airline 346 (1941)

Airline 346 (1941)

You are looking at a stunning six-tube super-het. The radio is a streamlined, sled shaped Deco styled radio playing on broadcast band only (AM). The previous owner did a fantastic job refinishing the set, giving it a high luster hand rubbed piano finish. Les has gone through the radio and it is a terrific player. Note the new green tuning eye with winks with a dramatic effect as you change from station to station. My attraction to the radio was the back lit tele-dial, which allows you to tune the radio by the dial or the right knob pictured. The radio has a couple of very minor veneer issues, and I think you will agree is a smashingly well styled radio. Clearly a radio will enjoy owning and listening to your choice of programming using the mini-jack installed at no additional cost. 17"W x 9"H x 8-1/2"D.  $499.00. (0961126)

 

American Bosch 200 "Bombay Chest" (1932)

American Bosch 200 "Bombay Chest" (1932)

I could find no fault with the condition, the finish is excellent and original. The radio has the fine metal capped wooden knobs and factory installed speaker cloth. Every element of this radio screams of the extraordinary care the radio has received over the last eight decades. The radio plays well for such an early set, with decent selectivity and sound level. My technician has returned all elements of the radio to factory new specs, and added a fine silk/cotton reproduction power cord and plug for safe and regular use. A real show piece; it will be a terrific item to add to your office or den. This radio is an impressively sized set at 16-1/2"W x 11"H x 11"D.  $899.00. (0961033)

 

American Bosch 460 Tombstone (1935)

American Bosch 460 Tombstone (1935)

This is a beautiful all original seven-tube super-het tombstone. The quality of the craftsmanship is outstanding with finely book matched veneers on the front. The radio is interesting with a horizontal dial that raises and lowers as you switch from each of the three bands. Seldom do you see a method like this, but it was used on some of the A-K's and Philcos. The cabinet is beautiful, highly ornate, and with only a couple of weak spots on the speaker cloth. For retaining the originality I left it as is. My technician has done a complete repair and the radio is impressive in performance. He added a fine silk/cotton power cord and Bakelite plug so that it is exactly like the day it left the factory. 18-1/2"H x 16-3/8"W x 9-1/4"D.  $399.00. (0961081)

 

Atwater Kent 165 Cathedral (1933)

Atwater Kent 165 Cathedral (1933)

This is one of my favorite A-K cathedrals. This is an unusually fine example. The radio is a full fledged six-tube super-het chassis with automatic volume control. This was made with the same cutting edge technology as the larger A-K's but in a smaller form. The condition is terrific and original with a touch up to the base. It has factory installed speaker cloth and knobs, but most importantly the delicate lace-like grille is perfect. My technician has done a complete repair returning this beauty to a perfectly performing radio. He added a fine silk/cotton power cord and Bakelite plug just as it had leaving the factory some 80+years ago. 15"H x 12"W x 9"D.  $699.00. (0961101)

 

Atwater Kent 387 Cathedral (1933)

Atwater Kent 387 Cathedral (1933)

This is a model that I had never seen before. The radio was made in very small numbers and is very scarce. The "Grand Cathedral" is a deluxe six-tube super-het, and was the finest money could buy. The radio is in terrific condition, with a professionally done refinished mahogany cabinet and correct reproduction speaker cloth. The knobs are factory originals. My technician did a complete repair to the radio, which had survived the decades in remarkable condition. He was very through with his work, aligning the tuner and adding a fine silk reproduction power cord and Bakelite plug for your safe use. I was impressed with the performance. 20"H x 16-3/4"W x 10-3/4"D.  $899.00. (0960947)

 

Atwater Kent 447 Tombstone (1933)

Atwater Kent 447 Tombstone (1933)

The example before you has some considerable wear, with some deterioration of the veneers, so please study the photos; but as seen, still very desirable. The speaker cloth is a period replacement, but the balance is original parts. The shadowgraph is working, which is terrific and Les has done a fantastic job replacing all of the rubber coated wires and drive wheel for the tuning assembly.

Les has complete updated all of the electronics and has returned the radio to top flight condition. He added a mini-jack, so you can listen to your favorite source of content and a fine reproduction power cord and plug for safe operation. 18-1/2"H x 14"W x 10"D.  $599.00. (0961139)

 

Atwater Kent 80 Cathedral (1932)

Atwater Kent 80 Cathedral (1932)

In the early era of super-het receivers, there was no better name than Atwater Kent. Known for decades as the premier maker of fine radios, this model was the first to offer the high technology of automatic volume control. This model sported fine barley twist side columns and the ornate zebra-wood veneer arch. The example before you is a very fine example. The finish is very good and original. The speaker cloth and knobs are also factory original. Clearly, this example was well cared for over the decades and is a wonderful example. My tech has done a thorough repair of the six-tube chassis and has replaced all of the filter caps, and condensers that are prone to failure. Add a tuner alignment and a fine silk/cotton reproduction power cord and plug, makes this radio a solid player. 19-1/2"H x 16"W x 10"D.  $799.00. (0961022)

The most interesting feature is the caramel colored pecan finish with the dramatic pickle finish. The effect is a unique look, and the condition of this hand applied finish is excellent.

Belmont 575 "Coat and Vest" (1936)

Belmont 575 "Coat and Vest" (1936)

This is a very fancy set from the Belmont factory. The radio is a very fancy cabinet, so important the factory named the radio. Fancy veneers and a decorative scroll trim justify the name. A fine performer with a five-tube two band receiver offering both broadcast and shortwave. The condition is super, as the previous owner did a fine refinishing with a correct replacement speaker cloth. I noted the fancy special engraved Bakelite knobs.

This is a highly unusual radio made by Brunswick Corp., the same as the factory which made high quality phonographs.

Colonial 36AC Cathedral (1930)

Colonial 36AC Cathedral (1930)

This is a wonderful find. These radios were made extremely well for the early super-het era, and powerful receivers too. They used a pair of #45 output tubes in a push-pull output and an over-sized 10-inch speaker. The radio is a remarkable player. The cabinet is unusually pristine with a dramatic photo finish detailed front panel in pristine condition. The condition of the radio is all original, with factory installed speaker cloth and the proprietary wood floral insert knobs. The radio has had a complete repair by my highly trained technician.

DeForest Crosley "Drake" (1932)

DeForest Crosley "Drake" (1932)

It is with great pride I offer this spectacular example of one of the finest radios ever made. Handcrafted with fine hand laid beading of Canadian Mahogany, this example is with the factory finish. The radio is so ornate, they installed the radio on large ball feet to accent the overall ornate design. The radio is an extremely large and heavy radio. The Canadian government required a much higher caliber of electronics in this era than their American counterparts, and I have been a fan of their sets ever since. Since Canada was a large country with a small population, much smaller numbers of their radios were produced. The transformer on this particular radio must weigh fifteen pounds alone. The radio is very complete, and a five tube chassis. The radio has been repaired to "like new" performance by my technician and plays loud and clear across the AM band. As large and heavy as this radio is, please note the shipping will be higher than most. Soon to be the focal point of your collection display! 20"W x 18"H x 10-1/2"D.  $999.00. (0960775)

 

Detrola 4D1 Mini Cathedral (1934)

My technician has done his usual complete repair to the radio and it plays in a dramatic fashion.

Echophone 80 Cathedral (1932)

Echophone 80 Cathedral (1932)

This is one of the most distinctive cathedral radios ever made. The company made a series of repwood grille models, casting the ornate grille using the combination of wood and rubber. These grilles proved over the following decades to be extremely fragile, and few have survived in this fine condition. The radio retains a fine factory finish. The radio retains all of the factory supplied parts, including the factory speaker cloth. The radio is a very early super-het, which has one more tube and incorporates AVC. This is an eight-tube model and it plays on AM/Broadcast only. Note the condition of the chassis, with full factory installed paperwork. Les has repaired to the radio to play as good as new. He has given the radio the very attention that this blue chip set deserves, and added a fine reproduction silk power cord and Bakelite plug for your regular listening.

He has given the radio the very attention that this blue chip set deserves, and added a fine reproduction silk power cord and Bakelite plug for your regular listening. 17-1/2"H x 14"W x 8"D.  $799.00. (0961096)

 

Electronic Research Labs "Angelus" Cathedral (1930)

Electronic Research Labs "Angelus" Cathedral (1930)

This is a pristine example from a very obscure high end factory. The research has led me to a Chicago based factory called Electronic Research Labs. They marketed in the 1920's under the name of Erla, not to confused with the Lafayette brand name of the same spelling. The factory later became the production facility for Sentinel Radios in 1935. This early "Grand Cathedral" is a powerful six-tube TRF receiver. The radio is in fine factory condition, with the factory finish and parts. The radio was super clean and my tech found the restoration a easy one. He has returned all of the components to factory new levels, aligned the tuner and provided a new silk reproduction power cord and plug for your safe regular use. The radio is as impressive of a player as well of the stunning cabinet. 17-1/2"H x 15-3/4"W x 11"D.  $699.00. (0960849)

Emerson 141 w/Ingraham Cabinet (1937)

Here is a very scarce model of the terrific liaison between Emerson Radio and the Ingraham Cabinet company. The marriage of these fine companies has a group of dedicated collectors. Ingraham Cabinets was an upstate New York maker of fine and exotic cases. Their fame was based with clocks, but the collections that they made for various radio manufactures are special. This scarce model retains a fine factory finish and the entire factory installed parts. I have added the maximum number of photos to allow you to appreciate the artistry of the cabinet and veneers. My technician has done a terrific job in restoring the radio to be as good as new. He has replaced all of the filters and caps and a complete alignment of the tuner. There is a fresh power cord and plug, which will allow you to enjoy listing to this set for many years. This radio is a five-tube radio. 14"H x 12"W x 9"D.  $599.99. (0960858)

Gulbransen 7D123 Tombstone by Wells Gardner (1936)

Gulbransen 7D123 Tombstone by Wells Gardner (1936)

Gulbranson was a high-end division of Wells Gardner. These sets were made in limited quantities and most were exported abroad. The cabinet is out of the finest import black striped mahogany and has been refinished at some earlier time. The radio is enormous, and is quite an impressive performing seven-tube super-het chassis playing on broadcast only. I believe the knobs and speaker cloth are correct, as the installed parts were commonly used by this gilt edge manufacturer. There are the usual signs of use to the cabinet with one repair to the left side, so please study my photos carefully. Most important is the highly detailed dial with multiple dials within the brightly lit master. You can see the details in my second photo and it shows the highly sophisticated level of construction. Clearly edgy and advance styling makes this a one of a kind addition to your collection. My technician has done a complete repair and the radio plays like the powerhouse it was designed to be. 18-1/4"H x 15-1/2"W x 13"D.  $895.00. (0961092)

 

Halson NS40 "Jefferson" (1934)

Clearly one of the unique radios of this era, the radio is sure to delight. 10"H x 7-1/2"W x 7"D.  $699.00. (0960986)

 

Herbert Horn "Tiffany Tone" 62 Cathedral (1931)

Herbert Horn "Tiffany Tone" 62 Cathedral (1931)

You are looking at a really scarce radio. The factory was located in Los Angeles, California, and made some of the most ornate and high caliber radios on the West Coast. Since they were more of a regional factory, few were sold and are seldom seen. You can see the fine original condition of the radio, with a very nice factory finish, with factory speaker cloth and highly detailed and ornate Bakelite knobs. The radio is a six-tube broadcast band TRF, and a very well designed electronically. My technician has done a complete repair of this blue chip set, replacing the filters in the power supply, condensers and resisters as needed. Checking the tubes and giving the set a complete alignment. Being a very early type of chassis, the radio does not have AVC (automatic volume control). Working great with the closest radio stations the most powerful, this plays well for this type of circuit. He has added a fine reproduction cotton/silk power cord and new Bakelite plug for your safe operation. 15-1/2"H x 13-1/3"W x 9"D.  $699.00. (0961060)

 

Kroehler/Ozarka 3426 Cathedral (1931)

Kroehler/Ozarka 3426 Cathedral (1931)

This is a very rare radio. Made for Kroehler Furniture by famed manufacturer Ozarka, these were some of the very best radios made in the early AC years. Kroehler furniture was a very well known line in the upper Midwest and wanted to sell radios, too. Radio was all the rage and since Kroehler was so well distributed and known, they contracted Ozarka to make radios with the Kroehler name on the escutcheon. These very same models were also offered under the Ozarka and Viking names. This particular set is a very large TRF and is a six-tube model. The finish, speaker cloth and knobs, are all factory original and in terrific condition. My technician marveled at the sophistication of this set's electronics. He has made the repairs to return the radio to a perfect player. He added a fine silk power cord and Bakelite plug, to replicate the way it left the factory in 1931. This is an impressive radio! 17-3/4"H x 16-1/2"W x 11"D.  $799.00. (0960955)

 

Lafayette M69 (by Ozarka) Tombstone (1933)

NEW!

Lafayette M69 (by Ozarka) Tombstone (1933)

Lafayette was a catalog seller of high-end radios based in Chicago. They contracted some of the finest factories to produce radios for them under the Lafayette name. The radio before you was made by Ozarka (North American Mohawk) using dramatic embellishments crafted from rep-wood. The radio has the factory installed speaker cloth, original finish and heavily sculptured knobs. Ozarka was the holy grail maker and limited in numbers. The condition is fantastic showing a tiny amount of wear from the decades of use. The radio contained is a seven-tube model, and is an early super-het. The radio was designed as a triple band radio, playing today on both Broadcast and Shortwave. Les has made his meticulous repairs and the radio plays like the deluxe receiver it was designed to do. This is a very rare and connoisseur level set. 19-1/2"H x 15-1/2"W x 10-1/2"D.  $999.00. (0961165)

 

Lyric S-22 Tombstone by Wurlitzer (1932)

Lyric S-22 Tombstone by Wurlitzer (1932)

Clearly this is one of the most outstanding sets of this era. Made by Wurlitzer under the Lyric Radio name, this radio shows the extreme design that made this company famous. These were seldom seen domestically and were most often exported both in 110 volts and 220 volts. This example is the domestic model, and a beautiful example. The finish is factory and the knobs, with the speaker cloth being a highly accurate reproduction. Contained in this futuristic cabinet is a very good five-tube super-het. Note the toggle switch on the side, which is a distant and local switch. This early super-het was repaired to perform as new by my technician. He replaced the dried filters and replaced the other caps as needed. The radio plays beautifully on the AM band only. Note the very large eight-inch Rola speaker inside, which offers a roomful of sound. We added a fine silk reproduction power cord and plug for your safe use. The radio is trapezoid shaped; 18-1/4"H x 15-1/2"W x 11"D.  $799.00. (0961065)

 

Midwest HH-7 "The Moderne" Tombstone (1936)

Midwest HH-7 "The Moderne" Tombstone (1936)

This was a very difficult radio to photograph. The previous owner did a fine job replicating the highly decorative toning of the model and added the highest gloss "piano" finish to the radio I have ever seen. So, if you see reflections in my photos, it's the luster. I noted that there is a tiny amount of lacquer loss at a couple of the seams, but the all over hand rubbed finish is unique. The radio is a monster tombstone with a five band, seven-tube super-het chassis. Les has done his very expert and complete repairs. He has added a new power cord and plug for safe operation and a mini-plug for your outboard input device at no charge. The radio is a brute with tremendous power and a large speaker to deliver the sound. You might make note of the dial, which is highly stationed and very Deco in appearance. These are rare radios, and the highly hand-polished cabinet makes it a focal point of your collection. 20"H x 14-3/4"W x 9-1/2"D.  $1,499.00. (0961130)

 

Midwest K-11 Tombstone (1937)

Midwest K-11 Tombstone (1937)

You are looking at a console radio fitted into a oversized tombstone cabinet. This is an eleven-tube chassis. Midwest Radio was known for high-tube count chassis and a unique mail order factory direct distribution. I had never seen this model before, clearly a scarce model. The radio cabinet is all original finish with minimum wear. The speaker cloth is an accurate replacement and the knobs and metal band select are originals, too. The five band chassis back lights the band as you switch using the selector. Three of the five bands are vacant today, but the radio is a powerhouse Broadcast and Shortwave receiver. With the high tube count my technician has done his meticulous work, as these are sophisticated in design. He did a great job! Adding a fine silk/cotton power cord and Bakelite plug, mirroring the way it left the factory. Note the large size, this radio measures an oversized 21-1/4"H x 20"W x 11"D.  $999.00. (0961055)

 

Packard Bell 36 (1934)

Packard Bell 36 (1934)

This is one of the most Deco radios I have ever seen. Made by Packard Bell in their Los Angeles factory, few of these deluxe sets were made. The radio is an interesting contrast of woods with the decorative arch over the dial being of Birdseye maple. The radio is a classic porthole dial set, dual bands and a highly detailed dial. The powerful six-tube chassis provides plenty of power and operates perfectly. My tech gave this very special radio an additional amount of time and attention. The result, inside and out, is one of the "special ones" that will become the pride of your collection. This is a special radio, so please click on the link for the additional photos. The radio has an almost complete factory back. 15"W x 10"H x 9"D.  $699.00. (0961051)

 

Philco 116B Tombstone (1934)

Philco 116B Tombstone (1934)

You are looking at the finest radio made in this era. The super powerful eleven tube chassis is renowned for the great power and selectivity that were the finest engineering of its day. The factory finish is very nice, with minor wear and the radio retains all of the factory installed parts including the grille cloth. The radio resembles a skyscraper and has a fantastic form. This was the best radio that Philco ever produced. The radio is a very large and tall set. Since you are looking at a high-grade console-like radio in a table set, the TEN-inch speaker and large chassis required the enormous size. The radio is also exceptionally heavy, as they built a huge transformer to match the high tube count. The radio was completely repaired electronically with all new filters and caps, and resistors replaced as needed. The often damaged tuning meter works on this set. The radio in every technical respect meets all of the factory specs. A fine silk reproduction power cord and plug have been added for your safety. This is a nice radio just to listen to, and enjoy its classic beauty. 23-1/2"H x 17"W x 13"D.  $799.00. (0960827)

 

Philco 70 Cathedral (1933)

Philco 70 Cathedral (1933)

Long recognized as the classic cathedral radio, the Philco 70 is a beauty. Designed by the famous Edward Combs, the "70" was the next to the top of the line. This seven-tube powerhouse is a tremendous super-het. The radio had the very latest technology. The condition is very good considering it is 80 years old. Clearly the radio is an older and skillfully refinished cabinet. It has all the factory-installed parts and accurate reproduction speaker cloth. The radio has been refinished with a correct luster, hand rubbed lacquer finish. Note the dial is backlit by the dial light, difficult to get a decent photo. The markings on the dial show clearly when the radio is on. The collector did a very nice job. Les has done a complete and perfect repair. The radio plays loud and clearly with an excellent level of selectivity. Les installed at no charge a mini-jack for your modern device. This will allow to listen to any content of your choice. The radio has a fine silk reproduction replacement cord with a new Bakelite plug for your safe use. A "Grand Cathedral" at 18-1/2"H x 16-1/2"W x 12"D.  $699.00. (0961146)

 

Pilot 18 "The Dragon" Cathedral (1933)

Pilot 18 "The Dragon" Cathedral (1933)

So seldom do I find any radio from Pilot available for sale. Collectors prize these radios, both cathedrals and tombstones, as they are rare and terrific sets. This is the first cathedral model I have seen in the last decade. It is the first model Pilot made, and is in tremendous original condition. Note the fancy Bakelite escutcheon and the original proprietary heavily sculptured knobs. There is a touch of veneer crease on the right side, difficult to see, but otherwise the radio is in remarkable original condition. The radio is a very early super-het, playing on six tubes. The reception is as good as any radio you might find from this early date. My technician has done a first class repair on the radio and it sounds super! He added a fine silk/cotton power cord and Bakelite plug as the radio had from the factory. This is a rare set and very impressive. 20"H x 16"W x 11"D.  $999.00. (0961054)

 

Pilot S-55 "Midget" (1932)

Pilot S-55 "Midget" (1932)

This is a very rare radio, one that I have not seen offered for sale anywhere for years. This "Midget" has been in my collection for years. The radio is in super condition, with a perfect cabinet. I believe the speaker cloth is a perfect replacement. The radio has had the most complete restoration possible and it plays well for an early "TRF" type of radio. The condition of the chassis is as nice as the cabinet, free of rust and discoloration. At 18"H x 17"W x 9"D, there is nothing "Midget" about this radio. It is a large and very unique radio, and a one-of-a-kind set. It might be the very best example of this radio that exists. Free mini-jack installed.  $1,099.00. (0961123)

 

Point of Sale Displays Inc. Coca-Cola Cooler Radio (1949)

Point of Sale Displays Inc. Coca-Cola Cooler Radio (1949)

Please excuse me, but this is the Real Thing. This radio was never sold to the public, but was a point of sale display for the prime Coca Cola retailers. The cabinet has been professionally repainted in accurate color and the lettering is perfect. The radio's chassis was made by Majestic for this manufacture and is a five-tube broadcast only (AM) receiver. The electronics have been completely repaired and have returned the radio to a fine player. All of the parts are original with full back and paper labels on the bottom. This radio is a double collectable, with value to both the radio and Coca Cola collecting world. A wonderful example! 12"W x 9-3/4"H x 8-1/2"D.  $899.00. (0961103)

 

RCA 128 Tombstone (1933)

RCA 128 Tombstone (1933)

You are looking at a terrific six-tube super-het from RCA. These radios perform like few others, as RCA owned all of the Armstrong patents and employed the best technology of the era. The example before you is the nicest all original example I have seen. Everything is factory original and in excellent condition. The radio is both an AM and SW receiver playing in a dramatically oversized cabinet for a full sound. The radio has been completely repaired by my tech, Les, and he remarked how fine a player the radio is. He added a mini-jack to this radio as it will allow you a unlimited amount of content in addition to the aforementioned broadcast bands. Complete with a brand new power cord and plug for your safe use, this will soon be your favorite. This is a very large and heavy radio, so you might want to be sure you have the space. The radio is a showpiece! 20-1/2"H x 16-1/2"W x 12"D.  $759.00. (0961142)

 

RCA 6T5 Tombstone (1937)

RCA 6T5 Tombstone (1937)

RCA made terrific radios and you are looking at one of them. This six-tube super-het performs like the larger tube count models offered by other factories. The radio is a dual AM/SW receiver with a brand new super bright tuning eye with dramatic sensitivity. The cabinet has been refinished, and well. There is a bit of cracking to the veneer on the lower front corners, which is hardly noticeable. The speaker cloth is replacement and the knobs original. This radio has been serviced by Les, who remarked on the terrific performance. He added a new power cord and mini-jack, as it is a fine playing radio. 21"H x 15"W x 10"D.  $459.00. (0961134)

 

RCA R-71 Tombstone (1933)

RCA R-71 Tombstone (1933)

This is an interesting radio. The tombstone is a seldom seen eight-tube super-het chassis. Made by RCA, it was one of the most advanced and powerful early tombstones offered for sale. This particular set was sold by the famous Seattle, Washington piano company Sherman & Clay. This retailer had a super reputation, and closed after over 120 years in business. It was not uncommon for a high-end retailer to "house brand" deluxe lines. The radio retains a fine finish, with correct reproduction speaker cloth and factory installed wood knobs with detailed insets. My tech has done a superb job in his repairs and the radio plays in a remarkable fashion for such an early radio. Note the fine silk/cotton reproduction power cord and Bakelite plug for your safe operation. 19-1/2"H x 14"W x 11"D.  $599.00. (0961045)

 

RCA T-9-10 Tombstone (1938)

RCA T-9-10 Tombstone (1938)

This is the second largest and most powerful tombstone made by the technology leading RCA. The monstrous cabinet houses a huge nine-tube chassis. I have tried for five years to source one of these, as they are renown for the sheer brute powerful playing with the most advanced selectivity of this era. I doubt they could build a better radio, with even today's technology. The set before you is professionally refinished, with a fantastic level of attention to the factory detail. The radio retains the factory speaker cloth and knobs. The radio plays on three bands and particularly well on shortwave. My technician, with his 47 years of practice, has done an especially good repair. He and I often talk about the performance of a given set, as we process a lot of radios over a year's time. We agree of the dynamic performance of these radios. He added a brand new green eye tube which winks with a great degree of sensitivity. He has added a fine silk/cotton power cord and new Bakelite plug as it had leaving the factory. I can assure you, you will never buy a better piece of electronics. This is an extremely over-sized set at 22"H x 16-1/2"W x 13"D.  $899.00. (0961057)

 

Remler 11 "Cameo" (1931)

Remler 11 "Cameo" (1931)

This a highly unusual radio made by the finest of the early west coast, San Francisco based Remler Radio. Rember was a very fine maker of very early, sophisticated battery radio in the earliest part of modern radio. They continued into the 1930's with a like quality line of rather unique AC receivers. This model is a five tube TRF, sporting a huge over-sized TEN INCH speaker. The finish is terrific, and the radio retains the factory speaker cloth and knobs. My technician has done a complete repair, returning the radio to a factory "like new" condition. He has added a fine silk power cord and Bakelite plug for your safe operation. I gave this radio, upon return, a very good audition. I found that it was a tremendous performer and showed a great amount of sensitivity for a TRF. Clearly the high quality this high-end factory was famous for, is present in this radio. 17-1/2"H x 16"W x 10"D.  $599.00. (0960828)

 

Remler 21 "The Minuette" (1932)

Remler 21 "The Minuette" (1932)

This is a scarce radio from a west coast factory. Very tiny in size, and super ornate with a Middle Eastern flavor to the cabinet design. As you can see the condition of the cabinet and grille are with a decent factory finish. The speaker cloth and knobs are accurate replacements. The tiny size of this early four-tube chassis was highly unusual along with the early style tuning dial. These tiny radios were favored in smaller rooms, such as a den or bedroom. The extremely ornate veneer makes for a very decorative set. The four-tube chassis offers, as you would expect, a limited amount of selectivity and sound output. These radios were scarce and fragile in design, so to find such a nice example is a rare treat! My technician has done a complete repair and returned the radio to its factory like new operation. He added a fine silk/cotton cord and new plug for safe use. The radio plays on the broadcast band only. 12-1/2"H x 10"W x 8"D.  $499.00. (0961068)

 

Rogers-Majestic 4521 (1936-Canada)

Rogers-Majestic 4521 (1936-Canada)

I am a huge fan of Canadian radios, as they were extremely well made and, in many respects, better than their American counterparts. The power transformer on this set is massive and over-sized for a six-tube set. They also were made in very small numbers, so they are scarce. You can see the care this radio received with exotic veneers on the front, in a chevron design. The craftsmanship is outstanding. The radio sports all of the factory supplied parts in a nice factory original condition. The six-tube super-het chassis is a solidly engineered design and my technician has done a first class repair. He has added a fine silk reproduction cord and new plug for your safe use. The radio is a special set, and a terrific player. 17"W x 11"H x 9"D.  $499.00. (0960881)

 

Silvertone 4769 (1938)

Silvertone 4769 (1938)

This is a nice example of a most unusual novelty radio. The radio was designed as a high quality super-het, with the latest rage of a tuning eye. The radio dial is styled after a telephone. Thus, this set was unique. The radio features a curved side, and is a near copy of another Silvertone model which was made by Ingraham Cabinets. The radio is in very good original condition, retaining all of the factory installed parts, showing almost no wear with a couple of spots on the top for all the decades. I bought this radio for the very good condition of the Tenite plastic grille and knobs. Often, these have shrunk, as this kind of plastic is prone to do; but this one is in fine shape. The radio is an eight-tube multi-band with a brand new tuning eye. The radio was repaired completely by my tech, and performs fantastically. The green tuning eye is very sensitive in opening and closing. Eight tubes and dual bands make this a great radio to listen to. 20-1/2"W x 15"H x 12"D.  $499.00. (0961064)

 

Sparton 252 (Canada) (1935)

Sparton 252 (Canada) (1935)

Those of you that are regulars to my page note my fondness for Canadian made radios. They were simply better built, both in electronics which was more tightly controlled by the government, and cabinetry. The population of Canada was small in those years, so there were a limited number of factories and a tiny number of sets produced. This is the same Sparton Radio Corp, that made radios in the States, but since they were producing in another country, were a distinctly Canadian company. This is a very fine five-tube broadcast receiver. The radio is rather unusual in the shape of the cabinet and with a green colored dial. The example here is about as good as you could wish, with everything being factory original parts and finish. The radio lived such a good life, we left the factory power cord on this set with it still being perfectly safe for regular use. My tech loved the repair of the older components, remarking on the higher level of quality of the set. 18-1/2"W x 9"H x 8-1/2"D.  $499.00. (0961052)

As a side note, this is identically the same chassis offered in the blue mirror model 557. The radio plays on both broadcast and shortwave. The speaker vents from the top of the radio and the sound simply radiates in all directions. The cabinet is made of the finest American walnut and has a fine luster and original finish. This outstanding example has the factory installed speaker cloth and knobs. The chassis has been completely repaired by my tech Les, who has done a complete and exacting repair. He has added a mini-plug to the radio so you can use this set with your modern devices. There is a fresh power cord and plug for your safe operation as this is a radio that you will greatly enjoy playing. 13-1/2"W x 13"H x 9"D.  $499.00. (0961141)

Les has done a complete repair on this beauty and the radio plays great. It could be the classic statement that great things come in small packages. Clearly a very ornate set with a two-tone burnout grille. 14"H x 12"W x 7-1/2"D.  $699.00. (0961121)

Stewart Warner 136-A (1937)

You are looking at one of my most favorite Art Deco table radios. Made by the fashion forward Stewart Warner, this model offers an exceptional radio with dramatic Deco looks. The cabinet is made of the finest American Walnut, with the center section, highlighted with Birdseye Maple. This example has been professionally refinished and retains factory speaker cloth and knobs. The cabinet has the Craft-Built metal tag, which was S-W's answer to the dramatic Ingraham Cabinets offered by a number of their competitors. The radio has been completely repaired and plays as new with the addition a fine silk reproduction power cord and Bakelite plug. This is a stunning radio to look at, but also is a tremendous performer. 19"W x 13"H x 12"D.  $629.00. (0961053)

Stromberg Carlson 130-U Tombstone (1939)

NEW!

Stromberg Carlson 130-U Tombstone (1939)

You are looking at the most desirable tombstone made by this famous maker. The company, founded in the 1800s, was the premier maker of scientific equipment and telephones. When radios grew in popularity, they morphed into a radio provider following the market for high quality electronics. This is the finest all original example I have ever seen! The finish is outstanding; the cabinet is crafted of the finest American Walnut and the radio retains all of the factory installed parts from 70+ years ago. There is no better example. The radio represents the finest electronics of the era, a powerhouse eight-tube receiver. The radio plays on both AM and Shortwave. Les has done his usual exacting and most through repairs.

NEW!

Stromberg Carlson 520-H (1941)

You are looking at a monstrous sized table radio with performance equal to its size. The company founded in the 1800s was the premier maker of scientific equipment and telephones. When radios grew in popularity, they morphed into a radio provider following the market for high quality electronics. This is a very nice condition and all original example! The finish is nice, with some wear; cabinet crafted with both hand laid beading and fret work and the radio retains all of the factory installed parts from 70+ years ago. Note the very complete back.

US Radio 9A Tombstone (1932)

US Radio 9A Tombstone (1932)

Here is one I had never seen before. The radio is very impressive with one of the most interesting dials. The radio offers a triple play of controls, and the largest nine-tube chassis I have ever seen on a 1932 radio. The set has had some repairs, with replacement speaker cloth and sounding board, likely done decades ago. The finish is fantastic, perhaps original possibly refinished... I simply can not tell. The condition is terrific only with minor chipping by the right front foot and a chip in the skirt of the tuning knob. The powerhouse nine-tube chassis has been completely repaired and this large tombstone plays with a fantastic level of sound and selectivity. Note the replacement silk/cotton power cord and plug for your safe use. 19-1/2"H x 16"W x 12"D.  $699.00. (0961077)

 

Westinghouse WR-100 "The Juke" Tombstone (1935)

Westinghouse WR-100 "The Juke" Tombstone (1935)

This is an interesting compact tombstone. The radio is a five-tube super-het offering both broadcast and shortwave reception. The radio is a very decorative model, with an ornate rep-wood grille that covers most of the front of the radio. Originally designed as a resistor-line set, my technician has electronically replaced the resistor line aspect but retained the factory supplied power cord and plug as they were in unusually good condition. The radio has been refinished, and the speaker cloth replaced with the accurate reproduction. The wood knobs are original to the radio. I was impressed with the performance of such a compact radio, gaining a fine level of selectivity and sound volume. The radio has a full factory back. 10-1/4'H X 8-1/2"W X 6"D.  $399.99. (0961098)

 

Westinghouse WR-23 Tombstone (1935)

Westinghouse WR-23 Tombstone (1935)

You are looking at a powerhouse. The Westinghouse radios are not common, but were very well made and this particular model is a powerful seven-tube super-het. The condition is all original, with a nice speaker cloth and fancy lathed wooden knobs. The finish is equally nice with no veneer issues. The radio does have two hairline cracks by the speaker posts due to the shrinkage of the wood as the set is now 79+ years old. My tech has done his usual repairs, replacing the filter caps on the power supply, condensers and any resistors out of value. With his alignment of the IF's, the radio tunes accurately. Added is a safe new reproduction silk/cotton power cord and reproduction Bakelite plug for your safe use. 18"H x 15-3/4"W x 10"D.  $499.00. (0961020)

 

Zenith 12-S-232 "Walton" Tombstone (1939)

Zenith 12-S-232 "Walton" Tombstone (1939)

Here is a beautiful and the most collectable of the Walton tombstones. This twelve-tube powerhouse plays on both AM and Shortwave in a dramatic way. The radio offered a motor drive which was a "latest" innovation. The radio has been professionally refinished, yet retains the factory original speaker cloth and knobs. I sourced a brand new "iris" 6T5 eye tube, which is a valuable item in its own. The patently defective 670 ohm speaker has been replaced with an excellent Zenith replacement. Les has completed his excellent repairs and added a mini-jack to offer you unlimited input options. This is an investment quality radio! The radio comes with a complete photocopy of the original owner's booklet. 23-1/4"H x 17-3/4"W x 13"D.  $3,699.00. (0961172)

 

Zenith 5-S-127 Tombstone (1936)

Zenith 5-S-127 Tombstone (1936)

Here is the nicest all original example of this terrific tombstone I have offered for sale. These highly reliable and fine performing tombstones are what gave Zenith "black dials" their great reputations. A brightly lit white-on-black 5-1/2" inch dial is fantastic for night time listening. The radio is an AM/SW super-het performing with a tremendous selectivity on five tubes. The sound quality from the five inch speaker is remarkable. The radio is factory original with the factory installed speaker cloth and iconic wood "Z" knobs. The cabinet is in tremendous condition with a fine factory finish. Les has finished his highly skilled and complete repairs. The radio performs as new, and with the level of his care, the radio should perform for many years.

A new power cord and plug complete all of his repairs. 18-3/4"H x 13-1/2"W x 10"D.  $699.00. (0961152)

 

Zenith 5-S-29 Tombstone (1935)

NEW!

Zenith 5-S-29 Tombstone (1935)

Here is one of the most popular Zenith tombstones. The radio is a five-tube super-het that plays on both AM and Shortwave. The dial lights up in a dramatic manner which changes color as you flip between the bands. The example before you is a fine example, with a nice refinished cabinet in nice condition I could find only one tiny area where the veneer was missing. The previous owner replaced the speaker cloth and it is a nice replacement. The radio retains the iconic "Z" wood knobs which are Zenith originals. The radio plays like a new set, as Les has done a terrific job in making his repairs. I noted the fine selectivity of the tuner section, and how many stations the radio received with clarity. Les also added a mini-jack for your external input device offering you an unlimited amount of content of your choice. These are one of the most popular model, nicely sized and a solid player. 17-1/4"H x 13-3/4"W x 9"D.  $659.00. (0961162)

 

Zenith 6-J-436 (1940)

Zenith 6-J-436 (1940)

This is the first example of this unusual tombstone ever to be offered on the Attic. Designed to be a 6 volt and AC powered radio, these radios are rare. The radio plays on AM and Shortwave with dramatic tabbed tone controls on either side of the dial. The radio is a large set offering a sweet sound. The condition is good, with some wear to the finish. The radio is covered in dryloc, which is a decal type of material making the radio have the appearance of a dramatic veneered finish. Refinishing the radio would destroy the dryloc and the radio would lose the dramatic detail. I thought the rarity would justify the less than pristine condition. Les has done a fantastic job with his repairs adding at no charge a mini-jack for your unlimited input of content along with the radio functions. 20"H x 18"W x 12"D.  $479.00. (0961147)

The radio is a dramatic player with the huge sized cabinet. Les has added a mini-jack to this radio, as it is a fine model to listen to on a regular basis.

Zenith 8-S-443 AM/SW (1940)

Here is a seldom available monstrous sized table radio. Essentially, this highly advanced eight-tube radio is a console chassis placed in an oversized cabinet. You can see the detail with all of the tabs that help you tailor the sound quality to your tastes. The radio sports a brand new green tuning eye, which "winks" with great sensitivity as you move from station to station. The condition is excellent, with an amazingly clean cabinet, which I believe to be original. The speaker cloth and knobs are original to the radio. Note the partial back, which hides the extensive self contained loop antenna offering a extreme level of reception. My technician has done a fantastic job making repairs and update to the electronics. He remarked this to be one, if not the best, receiver to cross his bench.
