Zenith AH "Zenette" (1931)

NEW!

Zenith AH "Zenette" (1931)

BC. The Zenette was Zenith's cathedral and this one is a beauty! Cabinet has an unusual quarter sawn Oak veneer along the top and beautiful subtle toning on the front. The grille cloth is new and the look is complete with the original ornate brass knobs for tuning, volume and tone. Backlit dial is a magnifier type making for easy tuning. Chassis is one of the first with AVC and a rather unusual design that works quite well and is very sensitive across the entire AM band, This is a rare set that doesn't show up too often. Fully restored and warranted. 18"H x 16"W x 9-1/2"D. $550.00. (0100152)

 

Zenith 6-S-152 (1937)

NEW!

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 516 (1936)

Crosley 516 (1936)

BC+1SW. This is a handsome little Crosley with a beautiful backlit glass dial, band, tone, volume and tuning controls. This chassis is a strong performer with an integral speaker. The grille cloth is a new exact reproduction of the original and original knobs. 11-1/2"H x 10-1/2"W x 8"D. $175.00. (0100149)

 

Philco 90 (1931)

Philco 90 (1931)

BC. Here is the famous and most desirable cathedral out there! This particular unit was manufactured on May 20, 1931, and is the early version with the brass escutcheon and push-pull 45 chassis. Very few of these most desirable early versions turn up and this one is a real gem! I have just completed a detailed restoration of the chassis which includes restuffing 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. $950.00. (0100148)

 

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)

 

Zenith 10-S-155 Console (1937)

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. $950.00. (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. $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)

 

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)

 

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)
