Oriole 4A

Oriole 4A

This one-of-a-kind Oriole 4A "farm radio" was manufactured in the early 1930s by Radio Products Corporation of Chicago Ill. If you are the kind of person that wants to own the only one in the world, this one is for you. If you see the one on Radio Museum, this is that set. The cabinet is beautifully restored in conventional walnut with Spanish walnut detailing. Fully recapped, with resistors as necessary and a full alignment. This was my first radio restoration, before I knew not to buy battery sets, so I bit the bullet and bought the $75 power kit from Antique Radios. The original battery plug is still complete and usable. The knobs are what came on it, and one is not original. It is interesting that this set is "instant on" with almost no warmup period. It is a very nice little set. I'm obviously losing my shirt at this price. I hope someone will fall in love with it.  $125.00. (1680003)

 

Philco 42PT95 (1942)

Philco 42PT95 (1942)

If you want to knock "cute" out of the ball park, pick up this endearing little Philco table radio from 1942. The cabinet is beautiful and unique. The grille and knobs are original and in nice condition. Fully recapped with resistors as necessary and fully aligned. I had to fabricate a new dial glass, but I am sure you, like me, will be surprised how good it looks. Grandma had one just like this sitting on the kitchen counter keeping her entertained and updated on the war while she canned vegetables. I may have the white a little too white. There are no good color photographs, and after two tries, I settled on this. I hope you like it!  $135.00. (1680007)

 

Zenith 5D011Z Consoltone (1946)

Zenith 5D011Z Consoltone (1946)

Offered for sale is a nifty little Zenith Consoltone 5D011Z table radio from 1946. This is a really swell little set with surprisingly good sound and decent reception on its internal antenna. The cabinet is in very nice condition, with all original knobs and grille cloth. It has been fully recapped and resistors as needed, and fully aligned. The only thing not original is the power indicator lens, which I had to fabricate, as none were available. The sound is surprisingly rich for a small table set, hence the name "Consoltone." You won't regret owning this little gem. It doesn't take up much space on the counter top and will keep you entertained in the kitchen, just as it did for Mom and Dad, after he got home from the second "war to end all wars."  $175.00.

Zenith LH "Zenette" Cathedral (1932)

Zenith LH "Zenette" Cathedral (1932)

Offered for sale a very sweet and rare Zenith LH "Zenette." This was an early effort in 1932 for Zenith to address the depression era money crunch and compete with the flood of cheapo sets coming on the market. Unlike the four- and five-tube cut rate sets, it was built with seven tubes and has much better sensitivity than most of those. It has been lovingly restored in a rich vermilion walnut hue, and I think it is stunningly beautiful. The knobs are not original (I made them myself); I also fabricated the tube cover. All caps and resistors have been replaced and a full alignment done. I feel confident that people will notice this gem among your collection. For the person who wants to have something no one else is likely to have, this is what you are looking for.  $450.00. (1680001)
