All of my radios are reconditioned to offer many years of perfect performance.  The radios have seen a superb technician with forty-five years experience with the electronics of these old radios.  The work is done as if I was adding these radios to my own collection. We have an "old school" mentality and take no "short cuts."  The radios are tested and retested to offer the very best performance possible.  All of the work is strictly done by the book!

We are now adding mini-jacks to our radios by special order.  These mini-jacks are a universal fit connecting to your headphone jack.  Some people use this connection to their computer for streaming audio, satellite radio and almost any other signal source.  This works with all players, such as iPod®, iPad®, and most "smart" phones.  This modification can be made to MOST of these sets, with no cosmetic alterations.  The jack will be available on the back on the unit you choose, and will not alter the ability to use as a regular radio.  Simply tune the radio to a vacant area on the dial, and you will be set.  Disconnect your auxiliary source to return the set to regular service.  Now you can listen to FM, MP3 and old time radio programs through your vintage radio.  This offers an unlimited choice of content.  The cost is a flat rate of $75.00.

A.R.M. 53 Tombstone (1938)

A.R.M. 53 Tombstone (1938)

Here is an unusual tombstone and a real beauty. The factory was known as American Radio Manufacture. The company made radios under contract for the Federated buying group known then as AMC. The factory was based in New York state and made radios with the labels of the various stores including Macy's. This is a stunning set with a brand new green tuning eye, which winks with a great sensitivity as you tune from station to station. As you can see from the dial, brightly lit, the radio is both broadcast and shortwave. My technician has done a complete repair and the radio sings with a fine level of sensitivity. He added a new power cord and plug for your safe operation. This is a seven tube receiver and a fine super-het chassis. The radio is a powerful player. 15"H x 12"W x 7-1/2"D.  $699.00. (0961048)

 

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 61-277 "Movie Dial" (1937)

Airline 61-277 "Movie Dial" (1937)

This a remarkable radio. Made by the famed Chicago based Wells-Gardner on their signature chrome chassis and sold countrywide by Montgomery Wards. These were deluxe receivers, using six tubes and playing Broadcast and Shortwave. Note the interesting dial which, like a movie projector, would display by projection the highly detailed stationized tuning dial. The radio has a brand new extremely bright tuning eye which displays a very high level of sensitivity. The chrome chassis is in great condition, still a bit dirty, from the decades of use since it left the factory, but the chrome is tight with no rust nor pitting. Seldom do you find such a fine all original example, with a extremely fine factory finish, and nice speaker cloth and the correct factory installed knobs... amazing! My technician has done a stellar job in his repairs. This is a particularly "hot" playing radio and the sound from a large set is outstanding. If you are the purest collector, who prizes the best original examples in unusually factory condition, this radio is a perfect choice. 21-1/2"W x 12-1/2"H x 10"D.  $659.00. (0960977)

Atwater Kent 567 Cathedral (1932)

Austin A.Howard Model A (1935)

This is one of the most interesting radios I have seen in quite some time. The quality of the cabinet is stunning with book matched panels, surrounding a pencil inlay.

Balkeit 68 "Round the World" Tombstone (1935)

Balkeit 68 "Round the World" Tombstone (1935)

Balkeit Radio was a high-end factory that was limited in distribution in the late 1920s-30s. They made some very interesting radios, like the one you are looking at. This is a model that offers dual band, BC/SW reception and works off a sophisticated five-tube super-het chassis. The condition of the radio is very nice, with a very interesting application of veneers, and a very unusual and brightly lit dial. Called "Around the World," the ornate dial offers the relative time in various international capitals, and the relative time zones.

Bulova M-501 (1933)

Bulova M-501 (1933)

You are looking at a great radio with real historical significance. This radio and the larger model M-701 were the first radios with clocks integrated into the cabinet. Moreover, they also allowed the clocks to turn on and off the radio at preset times. This is the smaller of the two models, and is a five tube super-het chassis with automatic volume control. These were very expensive radios of this era, thus expensive, so the number sold was very small. All of this particular radio's functions have been serviced and operate perfectly. My technician has serviced both the clock and radio to return it to perfectly running original specs. Note the toggle switch on the right side of the cabinet as shown in the fourth picture. It is a by-pass switch which allowed a manual on/off without the changing of the presets of the clock mechanism. The cabinet has been refinished at some earlier time, but the work is very nice. The speaker cloth is the correct reproduction and I believe the knobs correct and original. My technician has added a fine silk/cotton reproduction power cord and Bakelite plug for your safe operation. 19"W x 14-1/2"W x 10"D.  $999.00. (0961046)

Croydon 136 by Detrola (1936)

Croydon 136 by Detrola (1936)

This is a terrific table radio made by Detrola radio under their Croydon label. The radio is a six-tube super-het with a highly sensitive and new green tuning eye. The shape of the radio is unusual on an oval form and the outstanding feature is the highly lit 6" dial. The radio was deluxe for the 1936 era, offering five bands, three of which are vacant today. The second band along with broadcast the radio is capable of receiving modern shortwave broadcasts. The condition is all original, with some scratches on the top of the radio finish. I added a photo#3 so you can see exactly how minimal they are. The cabinet displays beautifully. My technician has done his complete repairs to the radio returning it to a "like new" condition.

(0961030)

 

Crusader 468 (1936)

Crusader 468 (1936)

You are looking at a terrific table radio. The radio is a powerful six-tube super-het, which offers both AM and Shortwave. Most interesting is the dramatic finish of the mahogany cabinet. The set was refinished offering a depth to the level of veneer work; the radio was finished with a hand polished twelve coat Mohawk clear lacquer finish. With the painstaking hand wet sanding between layers, using 1000 grit sandpaper, the work was completed in a classic manner. The piano like finish is dramatic in the depth and offers a unusually nice detail. The dial is a classic with the twin tower and globe in a super multi-color detailed way. The brightly lit dial is outstanding making the dial all the more interesting. Crusader was a very small factory located in Chicago, IL, and worked mostly as a contract factory to the national retailers. You seldom see their production under the factory name. 13-1/2"W x 9"H x 8"D.  $499.00. (0961007)

 

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)

 

Deforest-Crosley "Yukon" (1937)

Deforest-Crosley "Yukon" (1937)

Those of you who regularly shop my page often remark on my love for Canadian radios. I appreciate the fine craftsmanship they used on their cabinets and the superior electronics. In the 1930's, the government highly regulated the Canadian factories and required a much better level of electronics than the US government. So, you had better made radios there, and in much, much fewer numbers. This is a prime example from the very best factory. Curves on the corners and a cabinet made of the finest walnut veneers. The five-tube chassis is a quality two band radio playing AM and Shortwave. Note how the speaker vents on the top, allowing a wider and less directional sound throughout the room. My tech has done complete repairs to the radio and it is quite an impressive player. Completely original with a very fine factory finish, this radio shows only a few signs of use for its decades. 16-1/2"W x 13"H x 10-1/2"D.  $649.00. (0960779)

 

DeForest-Crosley 245 (1936-Canada)

DeForest-Crosley 245 (1936-Canada)

Here is another example of the high quality radios made in Canada. These radios were some of the very best radios made in North America. The government tightly regulated the domestic industry, and required a very high standard of manufacturing. These radios were designed for 60 cycle AC, and have a very heavy transformer and thus, perform as well or better than US made radios. This particular model is an eight-tube receiver with a massive eight inch speaker. The cabinet is a beauty in walnut and in fine condition. The speaker cloth is a perfect replacement. The radio has the fine repairs of my technician and is a tremendous player. The radio has been fitted with a fine silk reproduction power cord and Bakelite plug. The radio is impressive at 17-1/2"H x 14"W x 11"D.  $599.00. (0960874)

DeForest-Crosley 5D511 (1935-Canada)

Here is another of the terrific Canadian made radios. They were made in vastly smaller numbers than their American counterparts and better made. The transformers on these sets will assure you of a much longer life and smoother performance. The radio is unusual as it was created in a large oval form. The craftsmanship is outstanding, and the radio is in factory original condition with all of the factory installed parts. There is a tiny amount of ripple, hard to see, and remarkable for a set of this age. The five-tube radio is broadcast band and it sings perfectly. My technician has done a complete repair and the radio is as good as new. The impressive size of the set is 17-1/2"W x 10-1/4"H x 8-1/2"D.  $599.00. (0960888)

 

Delco RB-3 Tombstone (1936)

Delco RB-3 Tombstone (1936)

You are looking at a rather unusual radio. I seldom see Delco radios, either because there not many made, or the collectors hoard them. This radio employs a unusual form, with a chateau form with the curved top. The radio has a highlight of birdseye maple as an decorative addition. I believe the radio is an older refinish, very well done. The speaker cloth is a decent replacement with factory original wood knobs. The chassis is a high grade receiver, using a seven-tube configuration and is very well made. Note the oversized ten-inch speaker offering a dramatically big sound. My technician has done a complete repair on this radio and it is an unusually good playing radio. He added a fine silk/cotton power cord to replicate the way it left the factory. 19-1/4"H x 15-1/4"W x 9-1/2"D.  $499.00. (0960968)

Pulled 2014-01-25, Relisted 961067 on 2014-06-28 This is an uncommon model made by this style leading factory from Detroit, Michigan. The shape is unusual, not the boxy table radio shape so often made. The radio is a stunning example, with full factory finish, speaker cloth and knobs in pristine condition.

This is the scarcest and most interesting of the Detrola tombstones. I had never had a chance to see one of these... clearly rare.

The six-tube super-het chassis is adorned with dual "windows," the left called "micro tune" and the right the volume. The "micro tune" is a fine-tuning scale which allowed the most distinct way to tune in a specific frequency. The condition of the cabinet is super, and a very well done refinishing job with a gloss lacquer; simply beautiful. The previous owner reinstalled the original speaker cloth and the knobs are factory as well. My technician has returned this incredible set to perfect playing "factory new" condition.

You are looking at a wonderful mantle radio. The radio is a scarce set, and it was an interesting radio to research. This company was based in south Los Angeles, California, and made a very limited number of radios for just a few years.

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.  $899.00. (0960842)

 

Radio Lamp Corporation of America (1948)

Radio Lamp Corporation of America (1948)

Here is one of the most unusual novelty radios ever made. The company, which was a small factory based in Los Angeles, produced two styles of table lamp radios. This model is the more desired and often referred as the "mushroom." The radio is a plated model, and although described when new, as brass, the natural aging has changed the patina to a copper-like color. This was an expensive radio to buy, as it is one of the finest examples in original condition I have seen in forty five years. The plating is still very good, with only a few scratches and virtually no pitting. The lamp portion is a torchiere style lamp with the light subtly rising from the body of the set. The speaker is housed inside the shade and projects the sound vertically out the top. The radio is an All American Five chassis, which is a fine super-het radio. The dial is perfect, and everything is factory original with the exception of the new power cord and plug. My technician has done a complete repair and the lamp and radio perform perfectly. These are scarce radios, and to find one in this fine of condition is a rare treat. A must for a radio collector's office or study. 21"H x 15"W.  $999.00. (0961043)

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.

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.

Rogers Majestic "Madelaine" (1937-Canada)

Rogers Majestic "Madelaine" (1937-Canada)

I always focus on these deluxe super-hets from north of the border. I am a huge fan of Canadian radios, as they were extremely well made and, in many respects, better than their American counterparts. 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 nicely refinished cabinet. The six-tube super-het chassis is a solidly engineered design and my technician has done a first class repair. I love the octagonal dial, which when lit, is in an iridescent green. The radio is a special set, and a terrific player. 19"W x 10-1/2"H x 9"D.  $599.00. (0960880)

Sentinel 110 Cathedral (1933)

Here is a moderate sized cathedral radio, candidly one I had never seen. It is an interesting blend of several different woods, with the arched area out of beech or ash, and the face made from mahogany and bird eye maple. The radio is very special in its appearance, with a very ornate dial escutcheon. I note there is a small chip missing from the dial, but that was the only flaw in the set that I could find. See my second photo detailing the dial area. Inside the radio is a five-tube super-het chassis, which plays very well from the repairs made by my technician. He did a perfect job in his repairs, adding a factory like reproduction silk power cord and new Bakelite plug.

Setchell Carlson 58A-375 "The Jet" (1949)

You are looking at one of the most uniquely styled radios ever produced. These were shaped and sized in a very unusual manner, offering a very futuristic look to a Broadcast radio. The sophisticated chassis allows the addition of a standard phono with a connection on the back. As you would expect, they were limited in the sales and, due to a fragile construction, most did not survive. This example happens to be a nice one. The cabinet shows only a minimum amount of wear with a perfect dial which was prone to curling. The speaker cloth is a good replacement, which shows a bit of darkening from age. The radio has been completely serviced by my technician, who has done a terrific job in his repairs and the radio is a very robust six-tube super-het.

Sparton 252 (Canada) (1935)

NEW!

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)

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.

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

Long considered as one of the most collectable of all of these old radios and displayed on the popular television program "The Waltons." These radios continue to appreciate in value, as they are scarce and offer a dramatic quality of sound. You are looking at an excellent example of this blue-chip radio. The condition of the cabinet is all original along with all of the other factory installed parts. The finish is very nice, showing the minimum of expected wear of 75 years. The radio comes with a photocopy factory supplied owner's manual. My tech has replaced all of the components required to update the radio and ensure that you enjoy problem free ownership. We replaced the dead eye tube with a super sensitive 6E5 eye tube which shines bright with a great deal of sensitivity, opening and closing as you tune from station to station. The motor drive works perfectly, in both directions. I doubt you will ever find a better example of this highly prized blue-chip radio, and you will be amazed by the performance. Note this is the 1938 version, which has the paper tag on the bottom of the cabinet and chassis stamp. 23-1/4"H x 17-3/4"W x 13"D.  $2,999.00. (0961062)
