Sentinel 286-P "Treasure Chest" (1947)
(Bakelite tube portable radio)

Sentinel 286-P "Treasure Chest" (1947)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

Cute Sentinel portable in solid black Bakelite, not painted. Nicknamed the "Treasure Chest" for obvious reasons. Unlike similarly designed radios that turn on when the lid is opened, this radio actually turns on with an On/Off switch after the lid is opened. On/Off switch with Battery/AC on the left, Tuning on the right. Many of these radios have busted hinges, but this one has survived without any cracks, breaks or repairs. Label inside the case. The lid snaps shut with no problem. Unbroken leather handle. Plays fine, recapped & all tubes replaced where needed. About 8"W x 5"H x 4"D.
