Jackson-Bell 62 "Swan" Cathedral (1931)


Jackson-Bell 62 "Swan" Cathedral (1931)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Swan or Peacock? I have heard both, but I really think it's a swan. At any rate this is a very beautiful example of this extremely rare and sought-after work of art from the L.A. based company. Jackson Bell was in business only a few short years until the Great Depression bankrupted them. Bell finally found a new partner by the name of Packard and the rest is history. The chassis was manufactured by Gilfillan Brothers, who by the way are still in business as a part of ITT making aerospace and military gear. This radio plays loud and clear, my guarantee applies. The chassis has been fully restored with all new capacitors and resistors. The tubes are all globes including the 245 and 280! The original Lansing speaker has been restored with a new cone and a new field coil. The cabinet is finished with multiple coats of lacquer. There is some fading on the high end of the dial but still quite readable. 15"H x 12"W x 8"D, about 26 pounds packed.
