Philco 89 Lowboy (1933)

Philco 89 Lowboy (1933)

BC+1SW. "The Phoenix." This set arose from the ashes... well almost! The cabinet was rescued from the burn pile at the Kutztown radio meet as it was very solid and complete; I then matched it with the correct chassis that was rescued from the parts bin at the AWA Rochester meet in 2001, and a correct speaker from my stock. This is one of the most attractive smaller Philco lowboy cabinets! Fantastic patterned walnut veneers with burled highlights, original Rosette knobs and correct reproduction grille cloth. This set has excellent performance with very strong bass and a tone selector control on a fully restored chassis. Fully restored and warranted. 39"H x 23"W x 12"D. $475.00. (0100155)

 

Silvertone 4587 (1936)

Silvertone 4587 (1936)

BC+2SW. These flash tuning Silvertones were the top of the line for the brand and featured a unique Muting circuit that if selected would mute between pre-chosen stations and unmute with a "flash of light" when tuned to the stations of interest. Tags were placed around the dial to indicate those stations as well. The eleven-tube chassis is fantastic, with great strong performance, sensitivity and a special sharp setting for selectivity and there simply is no more attractive backlit dial on the market, with a glowing golden multi-layer glass and brass assembly. The cabinet is beautiful Deco with a waterfall front that has been in my personal collection for many years. Correctly toned highlights and new grille cloth top it off! Fully restored and warranted. 39-1/2"H x 24"W x 12"D. $1,100.00. (0100154)

 

Zenith 9-S-365 BC/SW (1939)

Zenith 9-S-365 BC/SW (1939)

BC+2SW. This Robot dial Zenith is a rare bird, known as the "Stars and Stripes" set. It is a 1938 model 9-S-262 which hastily had pushbuttons added to it so that they would have something to sell in the first few months of the 1939 season while they tooled up for the new models, when pushbutton tuning just entered the market. This set was only made for a few months and is quite rare. The set features a shutter-dial chassis with motorized tuning, a tone switch, pushbutton tuning (pushbuttons not electrically functional, details provided), Zenith acoustic baffle speaker, original wooden knobs and a brand new tuning eye tube! The cabinet is a stunning waterfall design that made Zenith famous with fantastic walnut and quilted maple veneers and brand new correct reproduction block pattern grille cloth. This particular set is a survivor as the cabinet top was in very poor condition, perhaps making it a parts set however I purchased it knowing that there was solid empty cabinet for a 262 awaiting on the burn pile at the Kutztown radio show and the two were happily married this winter bringing the 'ol Stars and Stripes back to looking like new again! 42"H x 27"W x 17"D. $1,195.00. (0100153)

 

Zenith 6-S-152 (1937)

Zenith 6-S-152 (1937)

BC+2SW. This is a fantastic example of the classic and highly collectable Black Dial Zeniths that are so sought after. Fully restored cabinet features a waterfall front, high quality Burled Walnut veneer, toned trim and new correct reproduction grille cloth. Performance is just what you'd expect from this top quality set; a copper plated chassis that has been expertly serviced provides stunning sensitivity on all three bands, and a clear and very powerful sound. Additional features include a multiple tone switch and a local distant sensitivity switch. I rarely have the opportunity to obtain these anymore so don't miss out on this chance to own a fully restored Black Dial Zenith classic for only $850. 40"H x 25"W x 12-1/2"D. $850.00. (0100151)

 

Stromberg-Carlson 228 (1937)

Stromberg-Carlson 228 (1937)

BC+2SW. This is one of those extraordinary Stromberg-Carlsons with the exotic patterned veneer cabinets with the black trim and fantastic tri-color backlit dial, Eye tube and original wooden knobs. The grille cloth is a new reproduction. I rarely see these for restoration anymore as most have been taken by now and are in collections. The chassis is classic Stromberg with top quality construction and performance. Don't miss out on this one, I may not get another! 17"Wx 11-1/2"H x 9"D. $675.00. (0100150)

 

Crosley 814QB (1935)

Crosley 814QB (1935)

BC+3SW. This is a beautiful little set with a very nice design, numerous exotic veneers and a beautiful dial to round it off in the middle. The most expensive console in the 1935 line at $99.50, the chassis is a very strong performer with great bass, coarse and fine tuning, a tone control and tunes all the way to 24 mHz. Crosley made some nice sets in the mid 30's and I haven't run across another one like this. There is a veneer "stretch mark" on the LHS, but the look of the rest of the set more than makes up for this mark of time, detailed pix available. Fully restored and warranted. 38-1/2"H x 23"W x 12"D. $450.00. (0100147)

 

Skyrover 64B Console (1932)

Skyrover 64B Console (1932)

BC+1SW. This is a rather high end ten-tube set for 1932 with tone control, AVC and muting, and a powerful push-pull audio output into two Jensen Gold stripe speakers. The chassis is actually a Colin B Kennedy 64C and a rare bird in its own right, but you'll never find another in The Skyrover brand. The cabinet is an exquisite combination of quality veneers and trim fully restored to as-new appearance. If you're looking for a beautiful set that you'll never find another, this one does it! Fully restored and warranted. 43"H x 24"W x 13"D. $600.00. (0100146)

 

Philco 16X (1933)

Philco 16X (1933)

BC+4SW. This is the top of the line Philco console and probably the best short wave receiver of its time. This set features the early eleven-tube five-band chassis with dual-speed tuning, shadowgraph, tone selector and switchable muting. The chassis in the console is beefed up a bit from the one in the baby grand with a much larger power supply and speaker for 15W audio output. Fully restored, the chassis operates like new. The cabinet is the early 16X version of which only 2000 were made, selling at $150 and is quite hard to find, it features beautiful burled walnut veneer and brand new grille cloth. This was a very untouched original complete with the original backing that was found at a local flea market about 15 years ago and a joy to work on not having to remove previous attempts at repair. Fully restored and warranted 42-1/2"H x 27"W x 13-1/2"D. $650.00. (0100144)

 

Philco 16B (1934)

Philco 16B (1934)

BC+4SW. This is the top of the line Philco cathedral and probably the best Short Wave receiver of its time. Originally selling for $85, this set Features the early eleven-tube five-band chassis with dual-speed tuning, shadowgraph, tone selector and switchable muting that delivers 10W audio output. The chassis has been completely restored and operates like new. The cabinet is the biggest "Baby Grande" (which is what Philco calls their cathedrals) ever made and has been properly restored using the correct toners and proper brand new reproduction grille cloth. This particular set was a forlorn survivor I found at the Kutztown PA radio meet. It had been painted at one time and the previous owner had stripped the paint off but lost interest after that exhaustive task. It was begging me to purchase it and finish the process of making it whole again like the several I've done before it. It's now ready for its permanent home. Fully restored and warranted 19-1/2"H x 16-1/2"W x 13"D. $650.00. (0100143)

 

Emerson AR-171 (1938)

Emerson AR-171 (1938)

BC + 1SW. This is one of the harder to find Ingraham Cabinet Emersons with a beautiful inlaid veneer pattern and an oversize backlit dial with original knobs. The chassis is a strong performer with very selective short wave perception. First time offered on Radio Attic; fully restored and warranted. 16-1/2"W x 10-1/2"H x 8-1/2"D. $395.00. (0100141)

 

Kolster 6J (1927)

Kolster 6J (1927)

BC. This Kolster is the first of the AC sets put on the market in 1927; it's basically a 6D model converted to an AC tube lineup and separate power supply. Very few were made before the AC designs arrived later in the year with the K20. This set works quite well for such an early design, and is probably one of if not the only working one out there as the pot metal in these always disintegrated and few would take the time to repair and reconstruct the dilapidated parts. The power supply has been re-wired and had its capacitor block re-stuffed and fully restored. The original labels are all included as well as the original instruction booklet, paperwork, and the station log that the original owner used in an envelope postmarked 1928. This set is a real piece of history and also comes with a fully restored Conoidal Speaker. Fully restored and warranted. 28"W x 12"H x 14"D. $350.00. (0100140)

 

Halton 92-1 (1948)

Halton 92-1 (1948)

This neat little set is made by an obscure manufacturer, Harold Lifton Co, using a GE chassis in a beautiful solid maple cabinet with a pretty backlighted glass slide-rule dial. Nice addition to any collection! 13"W x 8-1/2"H x 7"D. $175.00. (0100111)

 

Majestic 70B (1929) Console

Majestic 70B (1929) Console

BC. I purchased this set in the late 1980s and restored it in 1992. It's a fantastic example of a fine receiver that features an extraordinary highboy cabinet with many exotic veneers and inlays. In the past 25 years I haven't seen another! The chassis is an excellent performing TRF design with push-pull 71A output and separate power pack. I have taken and gone thru the chassis again this year, aligning it and updating it to current restoration specs. It's time for this magnificent piece to go onto its next caretaker. 53"H x 27-1/2"W x 18"D. $575.00. (0100105)

 

Silvertone 4464 Tombstone (1936)

Silvertone 4464 Tombstone (1936)

BC + 2SW. This is one of the classic gold dial Silvertones that are a hot performer and much sought after, but this one has quite a story to go with it. During WW2 a lot of old radios were donated to the war effort for use as training tools or for parts; they were then discarded after being stripped of all their useful parts. This set is one of those, that was lucky enough to be spared from the trash. The original chassis was stripped of most of its topside parts and some underneath, but the dial remained. The chassis in the set now is from a 4564 model but is the same exact chassis 101407 that the original was, only the 25 cycle version which meant it was sold in Ontario Canada where 25 Hz systems were still used until the 1950s. Fully restored and brought back to life once again! Original chassis remains available upon request. 16-1/2"H x 13"W x 9"D. $325.00. (0100089)
