You don't see this model often. Radios from this period in original condition like this one are hard to find. It retains the original grille cloth, knobs and finish. The chassis is extra clean and never rusted. They hardly gave you anything to grip on for opening the doors. Once opened they do operate smoothly.

General Electric XB333-D2 Portable

General Electric XB333-D2 Portable

Made by General Electric in Canada, this portable is designed to operate on 110V or 220V. I could not find one on the internet so I would think it is rather rare. It is all original including the leather strap and back pull. The faux covering is loose around and could be glued down again with a little effort. Overall it is in very good condition. The set uses only four tubes including the desirable 1L6 which tests like new. The radio has been serviced and plays working on all three bands. 13"W x 9"H x 7"D.  $119.00. (0260635)

It is in excellent original condition. It retains the original EM 34/35 tube which is still very visible, but I would rate the brightness at about 50%.

McMurdo Silver Masterpiece III Console Radio

McMurdo Silver Masterpiece III Console Radio

Advertised in 1934 as a forward design with a round dial which was a new advancement at that time. This radio was in a private collection for 25 years with no cabinet. the receiver is all original. The cover and face panel have been re-chromed. The balance of the chassis retains the original chrome. There is minor surface corrosion, but as you can see it still displays well. The chassis has been serviced and cleaned. All controls and moving parts were lubricated. The 12" speaker was used with early Scott sets and it is not original to the radio. The power supply is from an early Scott Allwave 12. It was completely rebuilt to match the one used with the Masterpiece III. It uses the correct tubes and connections for an original look. The cabinet is a custom design made from a period correct cabinet, but not an original McMurdo. The radio plays well and a rare opportunity to purchase this hard to find set.  $3,995.00.

Micro-Vox MV-200 with box

Micro-Vox MV-200 with box

Made by Mercury Electronic Laboratories, the Micro-Vox was made from 1949 until the early 1950s. It is a pocket sized hand held AM transmitter with microphone. This wireless remote microphone would work in conjunction with any AM radio with a range up to 75 feet. There are some marks on one side caused by decades of storage next to the wiring.

Packard-Bell 551 (1948)

Packard-Bell 551 (1948)

This rare 1948 portable was offered with brown Bakelite trim. The radio was sold in Bakelite, Plaskon or wood cabinet with Bakelite or Plaskon trim. The dial is just made of thick paper. I could only find a couple of images of this radio on line. There may have been a thin possibly Plaskon frame around the dial. From what I can find I do not believe there was ever a clear dial cover. As shown the dial is intact, but is only fair at best. The Plaskon trim is excellent with no cracks or chips. The cabinet has been refinished, but otherwise it is all original including the grille cloth. The chassis has been serviced and it plays well. 10-1/2"W x 8"H x 6-1/2"D.  $199.00. (0260599)

 

Philco 34B Cathedral (1934)

Philco 34B Cathedral (1934)

This is the hard to find early model 34B made in 1934. The 34B was offered again in 1935, but with a different cabinet. This is a farm radio or battery set, and a real time capsule. With the exception of the grille cloth it is all original. As shown the chassis appears to have never been serviced. The set was operational 15 years ago, but I'm offering it unrestored as found. It's in excellent condition. 18"H x 15"W x 10-1/2"D.  $249.00. (0260649)

 

Philco 81 Jr. Cathedral

Philco 81 Jr. Cathedral

This Philco dates from 1932 to 33. The more common variation was offered without shortwave and sold as a model 80. The model 81 has an extra knob for the SW band. I'm offering the set as found. The original finish was removed and given a light clear coat at some point. The cabinet is solid with no veneer damage. The chassis retains its originality and much nicer than you normally find them. The perfect candidate to restore as you wish or enjoy as is. Has the original knobs, escutcheon and grille cloth showing some wear. The speaker cone looks good. I checked the tubes, but otherwise the chassis has not been serviced. With a long wire I got several AM stations with strong reception. 14"H x 11"W x 8"D.  $169.99. (0260639)

 

Philco 511 w/ 211 Speaker (1928)

Philco 511 w/ 211 Speaker (1928)

Still known as the Philadelphia Storage Battery Co., Philco started the 1928 season promoting a line of AC powered radios including this model with matching 211 speaker. Despite the obvious flaws this is the best unrestored example I've seen. The lid had lots of scratches. I was able to get a good match on the brown paint and touched up some of the worst. That was the only thing I did to this radio. The original paint still retains a high gloss shine and overall the radio displays well. The original grille is damaged, but otherwise the speaker is in beautiful condition. The interior is spotless and all the tubes are globe type with the exception of the 80 tube. All the tubes check good and the radio plays, but with low volume. I'm offering this in as found condition to enjoy and display in original condition or to restore.  $349.99. (0260612)

 

Philips 960AS Cathedral (1933)

Philips 960AS Cathedral (1933)

Made in Czechoslovakia, this wonderful radio is a decorative marriage between wood and Bakelite. The grille cloth has been replaced, but it retains an excellent original finish that is hard to duplicate. These were designed to operate on 220V. It appears that an electronic restoration was started. I do not believe that the speaker and transformer are original to the set. Otherwise it seems to be all intact. I have not tested or serviced the radio so it is sold electronically as is. This is a rare find and a stunning example of European design ready to display and enjoy. 19-1/2"H x 15-1/2"W x 7"D.  $599.99. (0260546)

Overall they are all in very good condition and display well. Each is about 4-1/2" to 2-3/4" high.  $139.00. (0260676)

Silvertone 8000 (1949)

Silvertone 8000 (1949)

This 1949 Silvertone is a real cutie measuring only 7"W x 6"H x 5"D. I had to repaint the sides and achieved nearly an exact match to the original 66 year old paint. I was also able to preserve the original graphics that are still in good condition. It retains the original grille cloth and knobs, both in excellent condition. The chassis has been fully serviced and plays well. A great example of post War radio design.  $195.00. (0260626)

Made in January of 1996. It's hard to believe these sets are now over 20 years old. The cabinet has some light surface wear, but overall is in excellent condition. Nice Art Deco design reminiscent of tombstone sets from the 1930's. When tested the cassette player did not work. The dial light comes on and the radio works well on AM and FM. 12"H x 8"W x 7"D.  $49.00. (0260666)

Western Air Patrol 59

Western Air Patrol 59

I could not find any documentation regarding this radio. So I will say it is rare. It was sold through Western Auto Supply probably in the late 1930's. The cabinet was cracked on the bottom to the base of the dial opening. The repair was reinforced inside and can not be seen on the outer cabinet. The chassis is clean, complete and all original.

Zaney-Gill Tombstone Clock Radio w/Original Stand

NEW!

Zaney-Gill Tombstone Clock Radio w/Original Stand

This Zaney-Gill clock radio dates from circa 1931 and I do not have the model number. In the twenty years I've owned this set, this is the only example I'm aware of. A very similar radio is listed in machine Age To Jet Age 2 on page 346 with the name McCormick. Noted differences include three knobs vs. two, escutcheons, differences in grille cutouts, clocks are different and the chassis would not be the same. There are only two minor issues with this radio. The dial is worn and there is some base veneer missing. The base of course does not show so I never bothered to repair it. This set is in excellent cosmetic condition. The grille cloth is the correct replacement, but the balance appears to be all original down to the power cord. The chassis has been serviced and plays well with strong reception. The clock works and keeps time. There are no chassis bolts and never were. The only thing holding in the chassis is the small wood block in the rear. It is cut so the chassis fits in and it is secured with a screw. Don't miss this opportunity to own this great piece of LA radio history ready for display and preservation. 42"H including the stand.  $1,200.00. (0260691)
