Algene AR-5-U Portable w/Snake Skin Case

For the collector that has been looking for a radio in a red snake skin cosmetic case, look no further. The radio dates from the late 1940's and sports Lucite knobs, handle and grille. The case shows some wear, but overall in very good original condition including the grille cloth. The power cord is rather short given that you have to store it under the lid. The mirror is a little cloudy from age. It has a lighted dial. The set has been serviced and plays good. 11"W x 7-1/2"H x 6"D.  $225.00. (0260697)

Audiotronics 222

NEW!

Audiotronics 222

The company made audio equipment for school and based in North Hollywood CA. This radio probably dates from the mid 1950's. There was a black stripe on the left side that most likely covered what class or department it belonged to. I was able to cover it fairly well with a matching color. Otherwise over all it's in excellent original condition. The indicator light comes on and the set plays really well, so I'm offering it as found unrestored. 13"W x 7-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D.  $99.00. (0260707)

The model 650 is a rare variation of the more common 653. It has the band and tone control switch on the rear of the chassis as shown. The labels are in amazing condition showing very little wear. I like the deep, mellow and brilliant markings for tone. the left knob in front of the set is a trimmer. It dates from about 1934 and is in original condition including knobs and grille cloth.

General Electric XB333-D2 Portable

General Electric XB333-D2 Portable

Made by General Electric in Canada, this portable is designed to operate on 110V or 220V. I could not find one on the internet so I would think it is rather rare. It is all original including the leather strap and back pull. The faux covering is loose around and could be glued down again with a little effort. Overall it is in very good condition. The set uses only four tubes including the desirable 1L6 which tests like new. The radio has been serviced and plays working on all three bands. 13"W x 9"H x 7"D.  $99.00. (0260635)

The A-200 was made in 1946. This example is a standout with contrasting ivory "H" knobs. There is a hairline about 2" long coming from the right corner of the dial as shown. There is also a 1/2" hairline coming from the bottom left corner of the dial. There are some light scratches and surface wear. The reverse painted glass dial appears three dimensional.

Madison 940AU Clock Radio

Madison 940AU Clock Radio

This rare clock radio is the only example I've seen in pink. I have no idea if this radio has ant relationship to the 1950's novelty dance "The Madison." I've seen the radio dated in the 1940's, but I believe it dates from the 1950's. It is a wonderful example of mid century design. There is what looks like a hairline crack that goes around the underside of the rim as shown. It can not be seen from inside the cabinet and appears to be just a mold flaw in the cabinet. It does not detract from the appearance as the radio displays as new. The clock was removed, cleaned and lubricated. It still makes what sounds like ticking, but still keeps good time. The chassis has been serviced and the set plays well. 11-1/4"W x 6"H x 5-3/4"D.  $159.00. (0260703)

 

McMurdo Silver Masterpiece III Console Radio

McMurdo Silver Masterpiece III Console Radio

Advertised in 1934 as a forward design with a round dial which was a new advancement at that time. This radio was in a private collection for 25 years with no cabinet. the receiver is all original. The cover and face panel have been re-chromed. The balance of the chassis retains the original chrome. There is minor surface corrosion, but as you can see it still displays well. The chassis has been serviced and cleaned. All controls and moving parts were lubricated. The 12" speaker was used with early Scott sets and it is not original to the radio. The power supply is from an early Scott Allwave 12. It was completely rebuilt to match the one used with the Masterpiece III. It uses the correct tubes and connections for an original look. The cabinet is a custom design made from a period correct cabinet, but not an original McMurdo. The radio plays well and a rare opportunity to purchase this hard to find set.  $2,199.00. (0260570)

 

Micro-Vox MV-200 with box

Micro-Vox MV-200 with box

Made by Mercury Electronic Laboratories, the Micro-Vox was made from 1949 until the early 1950s. It is a pocket sized hand held AM transmitter with microphone. This wireless remote microphone would work in conjunction with any AM radio with a range up to 75 feet. There are some marks on one side caused by decades of storage next to the wiring. Otherwise it is in as new condition inside and out with no cracks or chips. It is a rare find with the original box and instructions. The box has been written on and is missing a piece of one flap. It requires a 1-1/2 volt "A" battery and a 22-1/2 volt "B" battery, not included. It is complete with factory wiring, ground clip and 958A tube. It is sold untested. 5-1/2"H x 3"W x 2"D.  $99.00. (0260624)

 

Packard-Bell 551 (1948)

Packard-Bell 551 (1948)

This rare 1948 portable was offered with brown Bakelite trim. The radio was sold in Bakelite, Plaskon or wood cabinet with Bakelite or Plaskon trim. The dial is just made of thick paper. I could only find a couple of images of this radio on line. There may have been a thin possibly Plaskon frame around the dial. From what I can find I do not believe there was ever a clear dial cover. As shown the dial is intact, but is only fair at best. The Plaskon trim is excellent with no cracks or chips. The cabinet has been refinished, but otherwise it is all original including the grille cloth. The chassis has been serviced and it plays well. 10-1/2"W x 8"H x 6-1/2"D.  $139.00. (0260599)

 

Packard-Bell 602 (1949)

NEW!

Packard-Bell 602 (1949)

The model 602 had the dial marked in separate scales. One for stations in the southwest and the other for the northwest. The dial pointers move in tandem. This is a very unusual feature. The cabinet is made of what appears to be Masonite with a faux wood finish. It dates from 1949 with a nice mid century design. There is crazing on the face panel, but otherwise in excellent original condition. The radio has been serviced and plays well. 14-1/2"W x 8"H x 5-1/2"D.  $349.00. (0260704)

 

Philco 34B Cathedral (1934)

Philco 34B Cathedral (1934)

This is the hard to find early model 34B made in 1934. The 34B was offered again in 1935, but with a different cabinet. This is a farm radio or battery set, and a real time capsule. With the exception of the grille cloth it is all original. As shown the chassis appears to have never been serviced. The set was operational 15 years ago, but I'm offering it unrestored as found. It's in excellent condition. 18"H x 15"W x 10-1/2"D.  $149.00. (0260649)

 

Philco 37-600

Philco 37-600

The Philco 37-600 was designed to look good from all angles. At some point it was given a clear coat over the original finish. It was very well done, but any finish wear was left intact as shown. The faux finish is still in nice condition on the front and back. The dial was damaged and repaired, but the graphics are still good. It retains the original grille cloth and knobs. Overall the radio displays well and still a better than average example. The radio has been serviced and plays fine. 12"W x 8-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D.  $159.00. (0260699)

 

Philco 511 w/ 211 Speaker (1928)

Philco 511 w/ 211 Speaker (1928)

Still known as the Philadelphia Storage Battery Co., Philco started the 1928 season promoting a line of AC powered radios including this model with matching 211 speaker. Despite the obvious flaws this is the best unrestored example I've seen. The lid had lots of scratches. I was able to get a good match on the brown paint and touched up some of the worst. That was the only thing I did to this radio. The original paint still retains a high gloss shine and overall the radio displays well. The original grille is damaged, but otherwise the speaker is in beautiful condition. The interior is spotless and all the tubes are globe type with the exception of the 80 tube. All the tubes check good and the radio plays, but with low volume. I'm offering this in as found condition to enjoy and display in original condition or to restore.  $199.00. (0260612)

 

Philips 960AS Cathedral (1933)

Philips 960AS Cathedral (1933)

Made in Czechoslovakia, this wonderful radio is a decorative marriage between wood and Bakelite. The grille cloth has been replaced, but it retains an excellent original finish that is hard to duplicate. These were designed to operate on 220V. It appears that an electronic restoration was started. I do not believe that the speaker and transformer are original to the set. Otherwise it seems to be all intact. I have not tested or serviced the radio so it is sold electronically as is. This is a rare find and a stunning example of European design ready to display and enjoy. 19-1/2"H x 15-1/2"W x 7"D.  $399.00. (0260546)

The Majestic was made by the Arcade and the Crosley by Kenton toys. the plastic table model was made by Ardee and probably dates from the 40's. The tip of the volume knob is chipped off and note the lack of a tuning knob. The grille center is also chipped and the back slightly distorted as shown.

Western Air Patrol 59

I could not find any documentation regarding this radio. So I will say it is rare. It was sold through Western Auto Supply probably in the late 1930's.

Zaney-Gill Tombstone Clock Radio w/Original Stand

Zaney-Gill Tombstone Clock Radio w/Original Stand

This Zaney-Gill clock radio dates from circa 1931 and I do not have the model number. In the twenty years I've owned this set, this is the only example I'm aware of. A very similar radio is listed in machine Age To Jet Age 2 on page 346 with the name McCormick. Noted differences include three knobs vs. two, escutcheons, differences in grille cutouts, clocks are different and the chassis would not be the same. There are only two minor issues with this radio. The dial is worn and there is some base veneer missing. The base of course does not show so I never bothered to repair it. This set is in excellent cosmetic condition. The grille cloth is the correct replacement, but the balance appears to be all original down to the power cord. The chassis has been serviced and plays well with strong reception. The clock works and keeps time. There are no chassis bolts and never were. The only thing holding in the chassis is the small wood block in the rear. It is cut so the chassis fits in and it is secured with a screw. Don't miss this opportunity to own this great piece of LA radio history ready for display and preservation. 42"H including the stand.  $1,200.00. (0260691)

 

Zenith L403 Portable

Zenith L403 Portable

This cute little Zenith shows plenty of wear, but still displays well. There are two cracks on the left and right sides of the base. I have shown a pic of the worse one. The clip that holds the back on is missing. A screw and washer are being used as a replacement. You will also note that a small notch was made in the handle to clear the screwhead. On the plus side the chassis is clean, complete and in excellent original condition including wiring and power cord. When tested the radio just hums. Sold unrestored. 8"W x 6"H x 5"D.  $69.00.
