Zenith 10-S-155 Console (1937)

NEW!

Zenith 10-S-155 Console (1937)

BC+2SW. Never before offered on the Radio Attic, this is one of Zenith's top of the line ten-tube sets in 1936! Beautiful walnut cabinet with a burl waterfall front and original toning highlight strip. Beautiful backlit dial as color coded bands, wooden knobs and properly working Target tuning. Originally costing $119.95, the chassis belts out an incredible 12W from a 6L6 push pull output into a baffled speaker that greatly enhances the Bass tone. Distant/Local switch and a tone switch round out the controls that will tune up to 19 Mhz. These ten-tubers are real collector items. Fully restored and warranted. 42"H x 26"W x 15"D.  $1,100.00. (0100145)

 

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.  $750.00. (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)

 

Crosley 171 Cathedral (1934)

Crosley 171 Cathedral (1934)

BC + 1SW. This is one of the most incredible cathedrals out there, and the highest tube count one at twelve tubes! This set uses the same chassis as the 171 console in a stunning cathedral cabinet incorporating exotic veneer inlays and restored using the correct toning lacquers and retaining the original grille cloth and knobs. This chassis is a very powerful and high end performer and has one of the most effective muting and AVC circuits I've heard from that era. First offering of this model on the Radio Attic! Fully restored and warranted. 17-1/2"H x 16-1/2"W x 11"D.  $775.00. (0100142)

 

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)

 

Philco 112L Lowboy (1931)

Philco 112L Lowboy (1931)

BC only. This is the lowboy version of the famous Norman Bel Geddes designed Philco that was the pinnacle of the Philco line in 1931! A stunning cabinet with exotic Walnut veneers that was restored with all the correct toners, original grille cloth that was unique to the 112, and original knobs. The chassis is an eleven-tube superhet with superb performance for the era. Originally selling for $149.50, 28,257 of these sets were made but they are quite scarce to find today, and this is the first to be offered on the Radio Attic as the remaining examples often never leave collections. 40"H x 27"W x 13"D.  $950.00. (0100137)

 

Silvertone 1650 Console (1932)

Silvertone 1650 Console (1932)

BC. This Colonial built Silvertone set has a beautiful lowboy cabinet with a stretcher base and burled walnut top. The front is set off with a Zebrawood highlight and features the original grille cloth and knobs. The chassis has a unique dial that sweeps the pointer across as the dial moves and gives good strong reception across the AM band. Fully restored and Warranted. 39"H x 24"W x 14"D.  $450.00. (0100131)

 

Philco 90 Cathedral (1931)

Philco 90 Cathedral (1931)

BC only. Here is the famous and most desirable cathedral out there! I have just completed a detailed restoration of the chassis which includes re-stuffing of all the Capacitor blocks and boxes, and has the original filter capacitors still intact (electrically disconnected). The Cabinet has been restored using all the correct toners in the same exact pattern as the original, exact reproduction grille cloth and original knobs. Excellent performance from this nine-tube chassis round out this most classic of all radio sets! 18-1/2"H x 17-1/2"W x 12"D.  $900.00. (0100128)

 

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.  $675.00. (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.  $425.00. (0100089)
