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.

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.

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.

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.

Pacific 52P (1934)

Pacific 52P (1934)

Here is a really scarce and compact radio. Made by Pacific Radio, which manufactured in both Los Angeles and Chicago, seldom do you see them under the factory name. They were suppliers to most of the Chicago based catalogue companies and exported the bulk of their west coast production overseas. This is a very well made five-tube super-het chassis which plays on AM only. The radio sports a back lit dial with a "chicken head" dial indicator. I believe the speaker cloth and bullet knobs to be originals along with the very fine factory finish.

Pilot 18 "The Dragon" Cathedral (1933)

Pilot 18 "The Dragon" Cathedral (1933)

So seldom do I find any radio from Pilot available for sale. Collectors prize these radios, both cathedrals and tombstones, as they are rare and terrific sets. This is the first cathedral model I have seen in the last decade. It is the first model Pilot made, and is in tremendous original condition. Note the fancy Bakelite escutcheon and the original proprietary heavily sculptured knobs. There is a touch of veneer crease on the right side, difficult to see, but otherwise the radio is in remarkable original condition. The radio is a very early super-het, playing on six tubes.

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)

 

RCA R-71 Tombstone (1933)

RCA R-71 Tombstone (1933)

With strong design inspirations from European Gothic church styles, this is a classically designed radio. The openings of the grille resemble church windows and there are columns on either side. The radio cabinet has been refinished by a prior owner and is in a dark red mahogany stain. The work is pretty good and the radio has replacement period correct speaker cloth.

RCA T8-14 Tombstone (1937)

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. All of the parts are original to the radio and in fine condition. Les has done his highly professional repairs and the radio performs in a spectacular fashion. Les added a mini-jack for your modern device input or a Bluetooth receiver for wireless capability. Bluetooth is available for an additional $25.

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)

Silvertone 1942 Tombstone (1936)

Silvertone 1942 Tombstone (1936)

Silvertone radios were made by many different factories for Sears. The breadth of the line was dramatic and the set before you was on the top of their selection. The advanced eight-tube super-het offered a highly sensitive green eye tube along with an advanced squelch and tone control. Note they "borrowed" the dual watch dial pointer configuration from Zenith. The radio has been nicely refinished and retains accurate speaker cloth and proprietary wood knobs. I thought the cabinet refinishing was done well, with the expected amount of aging from decades of service. These were very advanced receivers and play with fine sensitivity and sound. Les has done a fantastic job with his repairs and this plays like the deluxe model it was designed to be. He added a mini-jack to the radio, allowing you an unlimited choice of content with an external device. Choose your phone, pad or computer, the universal fit is there for any modern electronics.

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.

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.

We pack these radios to arrive in perfect order and you will be impressed with the care devoted to your business. You have every right to expect a long and problem-free experience with our radios, with the repairs made to correct immediate and potential areas of failure. Please contact us should any problems arise. The only exclusion is if you attempt any repairs or modifications to these radios. We are happy to take responsibility for our work, but this does not include any modification done outside our controls. Your complete satisfaction is our goal and we hope you will be our client for many more adoptions.

We are happy to answer all of your questions and will gladly provide additional photos upon request.
Payments accepted: PayPal (preferred), cash, check, or money order.
