General sales policy and collecting interest
I look for and find radios from a variety of sources, and appreciate restorations as well as nicely preserved original radios.  I also restore some cabinets as well.  I do light repairs, (caps), but mostly look for radios that work, (original or restored).   I have a real affection for radios in very fine, unrestored condition.
I offer a five day no questions asked return policy.  If you don't like it, just send it back for a full refund.  I encourage you to ask all the questions you need to to ensure that you understand a given radio, warts and all.
I generally ship UPS, but will consider and work with you as to who you may prefer to ship with.  Shipping is quoted after the final destination is known.  Overseas sales are OK where practical. 
Checks, Money Orders and PayPal are fine, and soon I will accept credit cards.

Detrola 134 (1938)

Detrola 134 (1938)

I was fortunate to find another one of these in great condition. BC/SW radio, which is distinguished by being one of the very first makers to introduce the new "plastic" components with wood cabinets. The knobs and bezel are early Plaskon, are flawless, and have a veined marble quality. Finished in gloss. Chassis has been restored, as well. Beautiful radio. Petite at 13"W x 8"H x 7"D.  $545.00. (1100133)

 

Detrola 136 Early (1937)

General Electric L653 by Ingraham (1946)

General Electric L653 by Ingraham (1946)

In 1946, GE continued the tradition of a radio as a fine piece of furniture, in the face of the cheaper Bakelite and metal cabinets starting to dominate the radio marketplace. GE turned to the Ingraham Co. to provide the traditional quality for the post War era. This is an AM only result of that marketing decision. Beautiful walnut, with a contrasting burl panel, in a sleek, modernistic design. Radio has been restored electronically, and plays well with good reception with its internal antenna loop. Its original back is present as well, but a bit worn at the bottom.  $325.00. (1100162)

Back on the Attic; buyer was unable to complete purchase. This is the export version of this famous Zenith. It featured the ability to select from four different line voltages to power the radio.

The chassis and speaker are in exceptionally clean condition; it has been completely serviced, and I offer a six month warranty on it. Complete with its 6T5 eye tube, rated at about 50% strength. It's a treat to see how responsive the tube is. Also featured is its original grille cloth, which is unlike the modern replica. Plays very well, and does need a short antenna.
