Air Castle 629 (1937)

Air Castle 629 (1937)

Seven-tube Sparton chassis graces this Aircastle with three bands and eye tube. The receiver has been restored inside and out. This is only the third 629 to appear in the Attic's history, and I sold one of the two known before. It is basically a clone of the 6825, or Lobster, with cabinet variations. This is a very rare set; in 20 years of collecting/selling, this is literally the third I have ever seen. 20"W x 12"H x 11"D.   $1,800.00. (1100292)

 

Climax Emerald (1937)

Climax Emerald (1937)

This Climax is one of the most exuberant and iconic of the 1930's radio design. Produced in two versions at less than 1000 total made. Three-band, seven-tube receiver has the original knobs, grille cloth and back. 17"W x 9"H x 8"D.  $2,800.00. (1100275)

 

Detrola 148 (1938)

Detrola 148 (1938)

Ivory version. In the era, several manufacturers sold ebony and ivory versions of some models. This is such a set. Made of Birch ply with Poplar sides, the cabinet was paint grade versus fine veneer to be toned. Famous Detrola chassis, seven-tube set for three bands. 14"W x 12"H x 9"D.  $995.00. (1100273)

 

Detrola 175E (1937)

Detrola 175E (1937)

Detrola marketed their 175E (E for eyetube) in 1937, and sold it under Truetone, Aria, Silvertone, and of course, Detrola. The electro/mechanical tuning was a huge innovation for the day. Popular in all nameplates, the sets are getting scarce today. This set is restored inside and out. Clean chassis, new speaker harness, and an aux input added for modern devices. Refinished in lacquer and hand buffed to a gloss finish. Plays well on AM and SW. Tuning works as it should. 22"W x 12"H x 11"D.  $925.00. (1100290)

 

General Electric 216X (1947)

General Electric 216X (1947)

Post WWII, the desire to own a fine radio in a fine cabinet continued the trend of the 1930's. General Electric offered many sets post War, some with cabinets by Ingraham, that were large, impressive, and utilized fine cabinets. The 216X is a walnut veneer, fairly large, elegant receiver that retains the original grille cloth and knobs. The six-tube, three-band set has been restored inside and out. 22"W x 14"H x 11"D.  $675.00. (1100289)

 

General Electric J-62 "Treasure Chest" (1946)

NEW!

General Electric J-62 "Treasure Chest" (1946)

GE, after the war, shifted design emphasis from Large to more "gentleman's radio" to compete with the growing influence of Bakelite and plastic sets. This is a three band, six-tube set with a large Rola, resulting in a better tone quality. The unusual Flying Buttress design is executed in American walnut. The set is restored inside and out. 15"W x 11"H x 9"D.  $545.00. (1100294)

 

Halson 4333 (1937)

NEW!

Halson 4333 (1937)

Halson was a NY maker, and generally of higher quality. Three-band, six-tube and a large Rola speaker. Made of American walnut, and extra specially clean chassis, the set is restored inside and out. 18"W x 11"H x 8"D.  $545.00. (1100293)

 

Silvertone 4763 (1937)

Silvertone 4763 (1937)

In 1937, Silvertone was on a roll, this set released after the Jubilee big gold dial series the year before. Made by Colonial, the set is a six-tube, three-band receiver. Restored electronically, plays well across the dial. Cosmetically restored, with original knobs and grille cloth. 16"W x 13"H x 9"D.  $765.00. (1100287)

 

Stewart-Warner 3043 (1937)

Stewart-Warner 3043 (1937)

This radio's distinction is being able to be displayed vertically and horizontally. Six-tube set. Original back and knobs. Restored inside and out, plays very well. 12"H x 8"W x 6"D.  $235.00. (1100281)

 

Western Royal (1947)

Western Royal (1947)

Unusual seven-tube set. I found the schematic; it was made by Wells Gardner, a quality maker. Found in Ft. Collins, Colorado, it has a western swing attitude. Clean as a whistle chassis. Restored inside and out, plays very well. 16"W x 10"H x 8"D.  $425.00. (1100283)
