Stewart-Warner R-1251-A Tombstone (1934)

Stewart-Warner R-1251-A Tombstone (1934)

This classic beauty from 1934 has been completely re-finished and restored to good working condition. Features original 5-inch speaker, new grille cloth and AC power cord. These radios are five-tube, two-banders (AM and SW), with a high-low tone switch. There is good signal strength up and down the AM band, and there was some talking fading in and out in a couple of spots on the SW, with a 10 foot wire attached. Shipping weight is 22 lbs.  $425.00. (0610094)

 

General Electric H500 (1939)

General Electric H500 (1939)

Here's a sweet sounding little Deco gem from GE, with unusual "thumbwheel" tuning. The cabinet of this chocolate swirled Bakelite is nearly flawless, with no cracks or chips. The five-tube chassis has been totally restored, with new caps, resistors, AC cord and even a new "repro" back. The attached long wire antenna pulls in standard AM stations all across the dial. It will be shipped with the original plain brown knob, or a spiffy white one, your choice.   $250.00. (0610080)

 

Powell Midget Cathedral (1931)

Powell Midget Cathedral (1931)

Here is a rare find for you Los Angeles radio collectors. The cabinet has been restored and refinished to original appearance. The electrics have been minimally restored because of the historic importance of this radio. New filter caps have bypassed the old ones, a new cloth covered AC cord has been installed, and a 1.5 amp pigtail fuse inserted for safety and protection of the circuit. That's it! The radio retains its original wafer caps, metal clad resistors, transformer and field coil speaker. Despite this, it performs well up and down the dial, with some howling and distortion as befitting an old TRF with easily overloaded screen grid tubes.  $475.00. (0610075)

 

Airline 62-501 (1938)

Airline 62-501 (1938)

No dial-face, just push-buttons, make this Bakelite radio from the golden age look very deco! The grille slots wrap around two sides and the dial position is read from the tuning knob on the other. The mechanical type push-buttons are set by loosening the screw on that knob. The radio has no back, but the case is nearly flawless, with no cracks or chips, and the five tube superhet chassis has been serviced and plays well.  $175.00. (0610042)
