American Bosch 440 "Globe Trotter" (1935)


American Bosch 440 "Globe Trotter" (1935)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This a highly unusual radio. The six-tube super-het plays on broadcast and shortwave. What makes this radio so different, is the dial. The large dial has a map of the world, stenciled on a bronze disk. The globe rotates as you tune the radio, changing axis as you move the dial. There are two brightly lit keyholes, with the station numbers brightly lit behind. I know of no other set that offered such a feature. The radio is in very nice condition, showing some wear as you would expect. The finish is factory original, as are the decal, speaker cloth and knobs. My tech has done a very complete repair, returning the set to an "as new" condition. He has also added a new reproduction silk power cord and Bakelite plug, for your safe operation. 19"H x 15"W x 9"D.
