Five-tube cigar box style, mantle type radio with AM Broadcast & Police Band.

Atwater Kent 944 (1934)

Atwater Kent 944 (1934)

A-K's entry level radio for 1934. Four tubes and a small cathedral style cabinet. The radio has a regenerative detector which will cause a loud howl in the speaker if the feedback control located on the rear of the chassis is improperly adjusted. Two bands (broadcast and Police band) that take a bit of finesse to tune due to the lack of AVC and the antenna being coupled to the volume control. You need both hands to tune and be ready to turn down the volume! Radio receives many stations along the AM Band with a long-wire antenna. It was serviced with new filter and paper caps. Resistors checked, new line cord, cabinet was completely refinished with proper toners. New grille cloth. Cabinet shows some minor blemishes on top (see pictures). 14-1/4"H x 12-1/4"W x 8"D. $250.00.

Emerson DQ333 (1941)

NEW!

Emerson DQ333 (1941)

Very few radios can truly be called a cream puff but this little Emerson definitely qualifies. It's about as close to mint as you can get, looking like it just came out of the box. The all original natural finish cabinet is immaculate. Zero scratches beyond very minor superficial imperfections that most likely were from the molding process itself when new. It was lightly polished and that's all that was done to it. Absolutely no cracks! Dial cover is nice and clear showing the amazing beauty of the dial face itself. The chassis is so clean you could eat off of it. All capacitors have been replaced as was the line cord. The tubes all test strong. It plays (AM only) across the dial as good as it looks. Examine the photos closely and if more are required beyond the allotted six here, please ask. 12-3/4"W x 8"H x 6-1/4"D. $120.00. (1790024)

NEW!

Chassis was serviced with all new capacitors, resistors checked, good strong set of tubes including ballast, new line cord and hand made pushbuttons (the originals had disintegrated and replacements are unobtainable). 14"W x 8-1/2"H x 7"D. $180.00. (1790021)

 

General Electric G-61 (1938)

General Electric G-61 (1938)

Art Deco styled cabinet featuring bullet shaped knobs and push-button off/on/presets. Ultra cool three-stage slide rule dial with separate tone/band pointers. Radio has been serviced with new filter and paper capacitors, strong set of tested tubes, new line cord. Cabinet was refinished with proper toners; however there is an area on the top and side that was toned a bit darker to blend in glue stains from the previous owner's attempt to re-glue the veneer. It displays well despite the flaws. Radio has new reproduction grille cloth. The only issue is this once three-band set is now AM broadcast only. The short wave and police bands were disabled due to a destroyed band switch selector mechanism that was beyond repair. But it plays strong across the AM band and looks amazing in a darkened room! 21-1/2"W x 11"H x x 10"D. $150.00. (1790003)

New grille cloth. Please examine photos closely and request more if needed. The unit is nice, but it is not a perfect/pristine example. Known flaws: badly pitted trim areas on escutcheon & tone arm, some veneer patching on a grille rib and just below speaker opening, phono lid is slightly warped & doesn't close perfectly flat, some wear/touch-up on the dial face, turntable has plenty of volume but is quieter than the radio, records have a slight quaver at the beginning that clears up as it plays (early type phono motor may be getting a bit weak for the heavy platter). Original back cover in nice condition. Small compact design. 16-1/4"H x 11-3/4"W x 9-3/4"H. $250.00. (1790023)
