Bulova M-501 (1933)


Bulova M-501 (1933)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
You are looking at a great radio with real historical significance. This radio and the larger model M-701 were the first radios with clocks integrated into the cabinet. Moreover, they also allowed the clocks to turn on and off the radio at preset times. This is the smaller of the two models, and is a five tube super-het chassis with automatic volume control. These were very expensive radios of this era, thus expensive, so the number sold was very small. All of this particular radio's functions have been serviced and operate perfectly. My technician has serviced both the clock and radio to return it to perfectly running original specs. Note the toggle switch on the right side of the cabinet as shown in the fourth picture. It is a by-pass switch which allowed a manual on/off without the changing of the presets of the clock mechanism. The cabinet has been refinished at some earlier time, but the work is very nice. The speaker cloth is the correct reproduction and I believe the knobs correct and original. My technician has added a fine silk/cotton reproduction power cord and Bakelite plug for your safe operation. 19"W x 14-1/2"W x 10"D.
