General Television 476 Mantle Radio (1932)

General Television 476 Mantle Radio (1932)

Here is a handsome mantle type of radio. The radio is a beautifully crafted cabinet with stunning veneers and black lacquer trim. Added to the cabinet are chrome strips accenting the Deco lines. Inside the radio is a five-tube and very early super-het chassis. The radio plays on AM only.

Grunow 508 (1938)

Grunow 508 (1938)

Here is a rather large and unusual model from Grunow Radio. The radio has a distinct form factor with a very large and brightly lit 7-inch dial with a clear and very impressive dial scale. The condition of the cabinet, which is original with a touch up of the black lacquer top, is outstanding. I replaced the speaker cloth with an exact reproduction, as these radios which have top mounted speakers tend to see a measure of deterioration after 80 years of use. The radio is a six-tube super-het receiver that plays well on both AM and Shortwave. Les has completed his repairs and everything is as good as when it left the factory. With his professional repairs is a preinstalled mini-jack, which will allow you to connect any modern device and choose your individual choice of content.

Gulbransen 7D123 Tombstone by Wells-Gardner (1936)

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. 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 advanced 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.  $899.00. (0961229)

 

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.

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.

Howard World Seven Tombstone (1936)

Jackson-Bell 62 Cathedral (1930)

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. The speaker cloth and knobs are also factory originals. The five-tube chassis provides a decent level of sound and receives the stronger and closer stations best, as is the way all TRF receivers perform. The speaker is a dynamic 8-inch replacement which does a fantastic job. Les has done his tremendous repairs and has returned the radio to factory new performance standards.

The radio plays both AM and Shortwave with a dramatic amount of selectivity. My pictures make the radio look more modest in size than the actual measurements which are at the end of this ad. The cabinet has been refinished nicely, and the work highlights the decorative racing stripe design. Les has done his completely professional repairs and remarked at the sophistication of the circuits.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 and it has been refinished.

Radioboys Radio (1947)

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. My best guess it is a marriage radio, where someone built (and very well) a chassis to fit an older cabinet. Les has made his repairs and remarked on the terrific design and performance. He added a mini-jack for your external input device. These jacks allow you an unlimited choice of content and tremendous sound quality. Know you are buying a very fine "one of a kind" radio. 15"W x 9"H x 9-1/2"D.  $299.00. (0961212)

The radio plays on both AM and Shortwave. This is a particularly fine playing radio. This model has dual tuning, with one knob being macro and the second fine tuning ability. With the perfect alignment of the tuner, this radio offers great value for the price. The condition is fantastic and all original with the entire factory installed parts.

RCA T8-14 Tombstone (1937)

I love selling all of these tombstones radios from RCA. They are tremendous performers and offer some of the best reception and selectivity of any radios made in this era. The set before you is a monster with a highly selective eight-tube chassis offering both AM and Shortwave. I might mention, these radios are some of the best shortwave performers you can buy. With the complete controls with a tone control and massively sized cabinet the radio sports a large 8-inch speaker. The cabinet is all original, with a bit of wear; the worst of it is on the upper left side. I thought is to be acceptable and simply cleaned it up. Look at picture #4 and see what you think.

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)

This is so early, note the dial scale which was still the earlier type. Les has completed his highly professional repairs and the radio is a remarkable player. The radio because of the early technology performs best with a decent antenna which is attached. Because of the type of circuitry, this set does not have a mini-jack or Bluetooth. I doubt you have seen one of these and the detail and beauty of the radio is tremendous and the most distinctive cathedral radio. 16-3/4"H x 15"W x 9-1/4"D.  $1,499.00. (0961415)

As you can see the cabinet is as wild as they come with African mahogany, chevron with Birdseye maple in the center of the front. The balance of the cabinet is highly detailed and made of American walnut. The cabinet looks to be a highly professional refinish with the factory installed speaker cloth and skirted wood factory knobs. The radio has a black lacquer top in great condition.

Stromberg-Carlson 130H (1936)

Stromberg Carlson manufactured some of the finest radios ever made. Long known for scientific equipment and telephones, they also entered the radio craze of the 1930's. This radio is a perfect example, with a sophisticated seven-tube super-het chassis and playing both AM and Shortwave. The radio was refinished by a prior collector, and a nice job. The radio had one tiny repair to the front right corner at the bottom and a tiny 1/32" sliver along the top back edge. Hard to find, but my practiced eye found them. The radio has period correct replacement speaker cloth and the unique factory installed wood knobs. Les has done his usual complete professional repairs and the radio plays beautifully! He also added a mini-plug allowing you a infinite number of input devices and the ability to have an unlimited choice of content.

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 replacement speaker cloth and sounding board, likely done decades ago. The finish is fantastic, perhaps original possibly refinished; there are a few very minor chips on the top. Such an ornate sculptured face with a fantastic "horse shoe" shaped dial makes this radio a standout. The powerhouse nine-tube chassis has been completely repaired and this large tombstone plays with a fantastic level of sound and selectivity. Les added the cloth covered power cord and plug for your safe use. The mini-jack is installed and Bluetooth is available for $25! 19-1/2"H x 16"W x 12"D.   $699.00. (0961387)

 

Wells-Gardner 9A (1934)

Wells-Gardner 9A (1934)

Here is a deluxe mantle radio from the famed Chicago maker Wells Gardner. A very high quality maker of many radios, the bulk for the better catalogue sellers of the 1930's as house brands. This model under their own label is a very ornate radio featuring hand laid beading in the most elaborate and fine craftsmanship in the cabinetry. The radio is all original including the paper dials without tears or measurable wear. The chassis is a fine early super-het that uses five tubes to receive both AM and shortwave. Les has done his usual excellent repairs returning the radio to a like new playing condition. Les also added a mini-jack to the circuit allowing you to connect your modern device to the radio and the ability to have an unlimited choice of content.

Westinghouse WR-22 tombstone (1934)

Westinghouse WR-22 tombstone (1934)

You are looking at a remarkably nice and original tombstone. The radio is rather fancy with dramatic matched veneers on the face and great detailing to the face. Contained inside is a five tube super-het chassis that plays on both AM and Shortwave. The radio retains all of the factory installed speaker cloth, and finish showing a minimal amount of wear. I loved the highly decorative wooden knobs that are also original to the radio. Les has completed his highly professional repairs and the radio plays as good as new.

Zaney-Gill "Vita-Tone Midget" (1931)

Zaney-Gill "Vita-Tone Midget" (1931)

If you are a collector of the super rare and wildly Deco radios, this radio is a must. A tiny four-tube early cathedral crafted from mahogany with a black lacquer grille. The grille is really special with a whimsical palm tree motif. Displayed in numerous radio books, these are some of the scarcest radios you will ever find. The Los Angeles factory produced very few, and with only west coast distribution, you know how limited production was. I believe everything is factory original and in fine to very fine condition. The four-tube chassis has been professionally repaired by Les, allowing a decent level of reception. Due to the tiny size and small speaker, these radios were never destined to larger areas, but bedroom and den sized rooms. Note the very earliest date of manufacture, with the dial reflecting the earliest dial scale. Clearly a radio offered once a decade for sale, the black lacquer grille is stunning and unique. We did not add a mini-jack to this radio, but is available at no charge. Note: This radio does not have a mini-jack due to the type of circuit. It also will not accept a Bluetooth device. 13-1/2"H x 9"W x 9"D.  $799.00. (0961314)

 

Zenith 5-R-216 "Cube" (1938)

Zenith 5-R-216 "Cube" (1938)

Here is a collector favorite. These extremely reliable models are compact in size and offer a dramatic level of performance. This particular model is a five-tube (All American Five) chassis that plays on the AM/Broadcast band only. Note the black dial, a highly lauded feature of the middle to late 1930's Zenith radios along with the iconic wood "Z" factory knobs. This example has been nicely refinished in an accurate manner. I would describe the color as red mahogany, with a fine lacquer finish. The work is good and the only issue showing age is a slight stress crack by the speaker grille on the left side. This is a common issue for a cabinet now 80+ years old. Les has completed his professional repairs and the radio plays in a terrific manner. Les added a mini-jack to allow your connection of any modern device. It also will accept a Bluetooth receiver available for $25 additional. A great performer in a modest sized radio! 12"W x 9-1/2"H x 10"D.  $499.00. (0961370)

There were a couple of tiny repairs made on the back edge of the cabinet which are virtually invisible. Note, the radio retains the factory speaker cloth and the wood and iconic "Z" knobs. Les has given the radio his professional repairs and the set plays with a terrific level of sensitivity. The radio has a mini-jack for your connection of any modern device.

This radio is a very interesting set. The radio shares the same cabinet as the 8-S-129. Originally created as a battery radio, this example has been converted to regular AC operation and it offers a simple "plug and play" for ease of use. The same astute collector has refinished the cabinet and installed accurate replacement speaker cloth. The knobs are the iconic "Z" wood knobs highlighting the large and colorful back dial for which Zenith was famous. Everything operates as perfectly as you could wish. Les has refined the repairs and commented on how fine the work was and the tremendous performance of the radio. Adding a mini-jack to allow you to connect any modern device or a Bluetooth receiver and have the unlimited choice of content.

NEW!

Zenith 9-S-232 "Walton" Tombstone (1938)

Considered as one of the most collectible of all of these old radios and displayed on the popular television program "The Waltons."
