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)

Echophone S-5 Cathedral (1932)

Echophone S-5 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, with some aging to the sides. The radio retains all of the factory supplied parts, including the factory speaker cloth. The radio is a very early super-het, which was made before automatic volume control. So, the toggle switch on the back of the radios serves as a distant/local switch. Note the condition of the chassis, with full factory installed paperwork. My tech 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. 17-1/2"H x 14"W x 8"D.  $799.00.

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.

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.

Gulbransen 7D123 Tombstone by Wells Gardner (1936)

Gulbransen was a high-end division of Wells Gardner. These sets were made in limited quantities and most were exported abroad. The cabinet is fashioned from 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.

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.

Jackson Bell 62 Cathedral (1930)

You are looking a very nice, but not perfect example of the highly collectible J-B "Black Swan" cathedral. These are the earlier type of radios and employ the TRF type of circuit rather than the later super-het technology. The cabinet is nice, original with a few predictable minor issues.

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.

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.

Radioboys Radio (1947)

When I saw this unique radio, I knew I had to buy it for my Attic page. It was so unusual in form, and the cabinet in original finish so nice...see what you think. Radioboys is not listed anywhere and I really don't know much about this particular radio. What I can tell you is that it is a six-tube super-het chassis and plays on AM only.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.  Was $699.00, now $599.00. (0961077)
