Bendix 115 (1947)

Bendix 115 (1947)

This completely restored five-tube was modeled after the highly popular 526C Catalin radio. It was designed by James Franklin Glover and is in beautiful original condition, showcasing its maroon and cream swirl marbleized colors. Many of this model's cabinets have cracks down the middle on top. This case is in perfect condition with no cracks, chips, breaks, burns or hairlines. Only the top left post that holds the screw inside the back panel has been broken and repaired. All tubes have been tested and set to factory specs. This radio plays extremely well, and the dial lights up beautifully in the dark! Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 11"W x 7"H x 6-1/2"D. $788.00. (1750007)

 

Crosley 11-115U "Serenader" (1951)

Crosley 11-115U "Serenader" (1951)

The Crosley "Serenader,", AKA "Bullseye" or "Dashboard" radio is an iconic design for Mid-Century modern radios. It features the much sought after dark red Bakelite case. The gorgeous Bakelite cabinet appears to be in excellent "all-original" condition – no cracks, chips or hairlines. This little radio puts out big sound. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 8-1/2"W x 5-1/2"H x 5-1/2"D. $405.00. (1750022)

 

Crosley E-15CE (1953)

Crosley E-15CE (1953)

This is a green mint chartreuse Bakelite classic with streamlined automotive styling. Its cabinet is truly in near perfect condition, but not in working order. The case has no cracks, breaks, or hairlines. Minor cabinet wear is isolated to knobs and underside of the unit. Back panel and electrical cord are original. I am the 2nd owner of this set. This is an extremely good example of a radio that is an icon of the 1950’s. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 12"W x 8"H x 6"D. $515.00. (1750001)

 

Emerson 511 Beetle "Moderne" (1947)

Emerson 511 Beetle "Moderne" (1947)

This is an all-original Emerson model 511 "Moderne" in ivory Beetle Plaskon with bronze (sometimes referred to as gold) marbling. The Beetle cabinet has no breaks, cracks or hairlines. The set has an integrated handle and the dial lights up nicely in the dark. It is an eye-catching radio attributed to famous industrial designer Raymond Loewy. It was introduced in the fall of 1947 at the original price of $29.95. It not only looks great, but plays great too! Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 11-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D. $375.00. (1750025)

 

Emerson 587A (1949)

Emerson 587A (1949)

This Bakelite radio is proof that big things come in small packages. This set may be tiny but its reception is spectacular due to the internal loop antenna that comes standard. It has five tubes and a nicely lighted dial. It is simply a beautiful black color with plenty of sheen. The case is in perfect original condition with no cracks, chips, breaks or hairlines. It has been fully restored for safe, reliable use. All tubes have been tested and set to factory specs. Ready to be displayed and enjoyed. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 9-1/2"W x 6"H x 6"D. $275.00. (1750008)

Emerson 636A (1950)

This radio has been completely restored to factory specs. Its maroon Bakelite cabinet with gold Lucite insert and streamlined dial cover are in perfect condition. The Lucite on/off and tuning knobs are located at the ends of the dial cover. It is a gorgeous all-original example of this radio designed by Raymond Loewy, one of the greatest and important American Industrial Designers of the 20th century. It's ready to play and display! Comes complete with its original PhotoFact Folder. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 9"W x 6"H x 6"D. $385.00. (1750016)

 

Farnsworth ET-060 (1946)

Farnsworth ET-060 (1946)

This radio in such minty all-original condition has become increasingly obscure. Over the years, few sets have survived due to its thin Bakelite cabinet and checkered Tenite grille. Just take a gander at those original beautifully swirled Tenite knobs! The chassis has been electronically reconditioned and this six-tube is simply just one of my best players -- no kidding! Combined with a dramatic dial pointer and dial that lights up spectacularly in the dark, this set is now closer to "as new" condition than any other you'll likely find anywhere. It not only looks great. It also plays great! Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 11-1/2"W x 8"H x 6"D. $395.00. (1750031)

 

Garod 5A-2 "Commodore" (1946)

Garod 5A-2 "Commodore" (1946)

Here is a sleek, very Art Deco radio in near mint condition. It has a streamlined profile, vertical louvered red grille, and slide-rule dial in an original (not re-painted) Bakelite cabinet. This tiny Bakelite five-tube AC/DC radio is truly all-original, has been hand polished and its electronics have been completely restored. The case is perfect, no chips or cracks and very, very few "flea bites." The knobs are original, the cardboard back is intact and the label reads, "Garod model 5A-2, Brooklyn, NY." The lettering on the clear plastic slide rule dial is reverse painted with red numbers outlined in gold, the sensitive plastic and all lettering are perfect. The radio has a good cord. A beautiful little post-war Art Deco gem and these, when found at all, are usually chipped and attractive sweet originals like this one are hard to find. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 10-1/2"W x 5-1/2"H x 4"D. $326.00. (1750018)

 

General Electric C3300-A Clock Radio (1969)

General Electric C3300-A Clock Radio (1969)

Here is a groovy Peter Max-inspired "Clock Radio" and one that both the clock and radio still work and play great. Its Polystyrene case has no cracks, chips or hairlines. The clock, volume and selector knobs were made exclusively. Perhaps the most unique feature is the hand-shaped dial pointer. The case is also of a wonderfully quirky design. The radio works as it should, picking up the local stations. They used a bigger speaker in this model to afford it surprisingly good sound for its overall size. About 7-1/4"W x 5-1/2"H x 4-1/2"D. $165.00. (1750012)

 

Majestic 651 "Triple Fin" (1937)

Majestic 651 "Triple Fin" (1937)

Wow, what a beautiful iconic Deco radio that's been totally restored inside and out! The Bakelite "triple fin" case with original back panel, replacement grille cloth and original padded feet; has no chips, cracks or hairlines and has an incredible shine. It comes complete with its three original torpedo knobs; the left to adjust its tone, the middle is its on/off switch, and the right one is for tuning. The radio has been electronically restored to factory specs and is now in as close to "as new" condition as any model of its kind you'll find anywhere -- and, as you can see, the dial glistens beautifully in the dark. It plays great across the dial picking up all my local stations. Just a gorgeous minty set all-around! Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 12"W x 8"H x 7"D. $755.00. (1750030)

 

Majestic M-6B02D/6FM714 (1948)

Majestic M-6B02D/6FM714 (1948)

Obscure early FM set in mint condition and perfect working order. Replacement RadioDaze dial. Beautiful, fully restored rare example of this early FM radio model. The cabinet has no cracks, breaks, or hairlines. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 12-1/2"W x 8"H x 9"D. $469.00. (1750004)

 

Motorola 5R15U (1950)

Motorola 5R15U (1950)

If this radio had a bottom label, I'd bet it my last dollar that it was NOS. It's incredibly beautiful, with scarcely a single mark on its cabinet. It even comes with the box! This midget Bakelite radio makes up in dramatic appeal what it lacks in size. The color of this radio is really almost Steel Blue, not as green as the Photofact might suggest. The checkerboard pattern is deeply recessed and the numbers of the tuning dial are molded in relief, as is the gold-painted Motorola name. A thick dial bears the "serpentine" Motorola logo, and is color-coordinated with the cabinet. It obviously has no cracks, breaks or hairlines. It plays great across the dial picking up all my local stations. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 8-1/4"W x 5"H x 5"D. $275.00. (1750029)

 

Motorola 52R15A (1952)

Motorola 52R15A (1952)

Here is a rare minty green early 50s radio, the only one of its kind ever to be sold on Radio Attic in the last 20+ years! It's in excellent cosmetic condition with the only wear that I can see being the painted gold "serpentine" logo on the front of the case. The cabinet is all-original and has no breaks, cracks, chips or hairlines. It comes complete with its original cardboard back. The chassis is a standard five-tube, clean and complete. It looks great and plays great. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 8-1/4"W x 5"H x 5"D. $275.00. (1750032)

 

Northern Electric 5508 "Midge" (1951)

Northern Electric 5508 "Midge" (1951)

This is a gorgeous all-original Northern Electric "Midge" Bullet radio with very cool aerodynamic styling. In the 1950s, Northern Electric was a Canadian manufacturer of consumer electronics and radios. The 5508 "Midge" has a nice streamline bullet cabinet design that clearly is based on the Farnsworth GT-051 design. The Bakelite case is stunningly shiny with no breaks, cracks or hairlines - just a slight wrinkle in the gold foil on the dial. With a five-tube, superheterodyne receiver and built-in loop antenna, it not only looks great, it plays great too. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 11-1/2"W x 6"H x 6"D. $285.00. (1750021)

 

Philco D-595-124 (1956)

Philco D-595-124 (1956)

This is an obscure Mid-Century radio that combines a white case with a lime green grille, red dial and red on-off knob. Its cabinet has no chips or staining and shines well, but it does have a hairline crack that doesn't detract from its beauty or collectability. Though this set is in non-working order, it is an extremely fine example of a hard-to-find 1950's Atomic radio. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 10"W x 6"H x 5-1/2"D. $360.00. (1750006)

 

Philco TH-16 "Transitone" (1940)

Philco TH-16 "Transitone" (1940)

Introduced in June 1939 to replace the TH-4, this model, the TH-16, offered an additional handle and Bakelite back to conceal the newly introduced big loop antenna. The Bakelite cabinet including grille cloth is all-original and in perfect condition with no breaks, chips or hairlines. The chassis was serviced by the previous owner and picks up all my local stations. The pre-sets don't work except for the one labeled "DIAL." The grille cloth, dial and front louvered add the finishing touches to this beautiful Art Deco design. In all, 17,030 of these sets were made and originally sold for $11.95. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 8-1/2"W x 6-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D. $360.00. (1750026)

 

RCA Victor 5C581 "Debonair" Clock Radio (1954)

RCA Victor 5C581 "Debonair" Clock Radio (1954)

The "Debonair" is an obscure clock radio known for its 1950's TV-style appearance and unique design. It is in Near Mint fully restored working order. It is a five-tube Super-Het rarely found working and in good cosmetic shape. Everything is cosmetically original and electronically restored to factory specs. The on/off knob is atop the black with gold trim Polystyrene case. The clock radio turns on/off by twisting the plastic bezel covering the clock. It is now as close to "as new" condition as any radio that you may find anywhere. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 11"W x 8"H x 7"D. $463.00. (1750010)

 

RCA Victor 96X-13 "Vassos" (1939)

RCA Victor 96X-13 "Vassos" (1939)

This is an Art Deco gem! The obscure model of this radio in Walnut and Ivory Finish is rarely if ever found in this condition. Its Bakelite cabinet is in perfect mint condition with no breaks, chips or hairlines. The chassis was restored by the previous owner and it plays well picking up all the local stations. It has a very innovative beautifully lit dial that is part of a roller as you turn the dial knob. This radio was designed by John Vassos, an American industrial designer and artist who helped define the shape of radio, and TV for the Radio Corporation of America for almost four decades. He also designed the widely popular Perey turnstile still used in many subway stations. This one's a rare one, likely the best example of this set you'll ever find. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 11"W x 7"H x 7"D. $850.00. (1750020)

 

Silvertone 6405 (1940)

Silvertone 6405 (1940)

This is a rather scarce midget tube radio with an Art Deco design. It is a fully restored little beauty with two thumb knobs, one for on-off volume and one for tuning. Back panel is missing. This radio comes standard with no dial glass and is another radio with an upside-down chassis. Since dust couldn't settle on it over the years and foster corrosion, the chassis is especially clean after this restoration. The cabinet has no cracks, breaks, or hairlines. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 7-3/4"W x 5"H x 5-1/2"D. $535.00. (1750002)

 

Sparton 132 "Football" (1950)

Sparton 132 "Football" (1950)

A really nice, completely restored and all-original cranberry red Sparton radio from 1950, nicknamed the "Football" radio for obvious reasons. This is a hard to find color in this model, especially in this condition. The cases were made out of plastic, and consequently most of the survivors show a lot of wear. But this cabinet is in very nice condition, with just a one nick (see photo #3) and a few very slight rubs, but no breaks, cracks, hairlines, tube burns or major cosmetic issues. Its original grille, back and original knobs with brass inserts are in perfect condition. The radio is playing just great, picking up all my local AM stations clearly. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 13"W x 6"H x 6"D. $295.00. (1750024)

 

Stewart-Warner 04-512-S "Campus" (1939)

Stewart-Warner 04-512-S "Campus" (1939)

This bullet-shaped five-tube Super-het AM radio in solid ivory with red dial and on/off knob radio has been fully restored and hand polished. It is all-original and in near perfect condition. The dial light illuminates the pointer (which is often missing) and the illuminated stations behind the dial moves when tuning and lights up the cabinet in the dial area. There is a slight hairline fracture on the top (hardly noticeable under normal light) that doesn't detract from its beauty when on display. All tubes have been tested and set to factory specs. This radio only needs to be displayed and enjoyed. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 9"W x 6"H x 5"D. $350.00. (1750005)

 

Stewart-Warner B51T2 "AirPal" (1948)

Stewart-Warner B51T2 "AirPal" (1948)

In Radio Attic's over 20 years of existence, this is the first of this model for sale. This is a very rare all-original Deco radio that not only has its original grille cloth, but it also has been totally restored inside and out and is now electronically restored to factory specs. The case has no chips, cracks or hairlines. Its dial pointer has been calibrated and reaches across the dial from end-to-end. Original label is still attached. It plays extremely well across the dial but would benefit from an external antenna that connects to the original short wire provided. About 10-1/4"W x 5"H x 3-1/4"D. $405.00. (1750028)

 

Stewart-Warner B61T2 "Ferrodyne" (1949)

Stewart-Warner B61T2 "Ferrodyne" (1949)

Produced only in 1949, this set is all-original and in excellent working condition. This is a six-tube radio, AM band only model. It even comes complete with its extremely rare original instructions to explain the three control knobs! Tuning is easy, and the sound is strong and clear. The case with wrap-around louvered grille is not Bakelite but an early Polystyrene "mahogany" cabinet with lots of brown swirls. The asymmetrical streamlined Art Deco styling and illuminated dial makes this set a real show-stopper. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. In fact, this was just the 3rd radio I ever bought back in 1982. About 14-1/2"W x 8"H c 7"D. $395.00. (1750015)

 

Stromberg-Carlson T-4 (1954)

Stromberg-Carlson T-4 (1954)

This Mid-Century radio was one of Stromberg-Carlson's last radios. Its yellow Polystyrene cabinet with gold grille is stunning. It is in excellent cosmetic condition with no chips, cracks or hairlines at all. The radio has been serviced and plays well. The original cardboard back is intact, and the radio still has the its original schematic diagram laminated to the bottom. Both knobs are original. Comes complete with its original PhotoFact Folder. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 10"W x 5-1/2"H x 5"D. $225.00. (1750019)

About Me & My Radios
As a long-time radio collector, I've come to appreciate those sellers who I could always rely on to accurately describe the radios they're selling.  These are the sellers who've gotten the bulk of my repeat business over the past 35 years.  I'm sure you feel the same way and that's exactly why your satisfaction is so important to me.  I can 100% guarantee that I'll always make every effort to deliver you the radio that I have described.  All my radios are from my personal collection of more than 100 sets, most of which I no longer have room for now that my family and I have recently downsized to a smaller home.  Many, if not most, of my sets have been fully restored by a highly trained and experienced technician.  In those instances where the set is in non-working order and/or the cabinet has warts and/or other blemishes, it is so stated.  Please understand that though I will take every pain to carefully pack and ship each radio individually to arrive at your destination in the same shape it left my home, mishaps occasionally do happen in-transit.  Often, this mishap is just a tube that has come loose; on other rare occasions the damage may be more severe but that's why I will only ship your radio fully insured via two-day delivery.  I will use USPS unless you designate UPS or FedEx.  Your radio will be at less risk if it spends less time in the mail.  Please contact me should any issues arise.  The only exception is if you attempt to make any repairs or modifications to these radios yourself.  I am happy to take responsibility for these radios in my collection, but not for any work outside of my control.  Your 100% satisfaction is my goal and I hope you'll be happy to buy from me again and again.

Payments accepted: PayPal (preferred), cash, check, or money order.
