Philco 41-226 "Sled" (1941)


Philco 41-226 "Sled" (1941)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This attractive and very collectible pre-War Philco table radio, nicknamed the "Sled" for obvious reasons, was introduced in the summer of 1940 for the 1941 season. Its introductory selling price was $27.50. The cabinet is in beautiful condition with its matched walnut veneer and gorgeous wood inlays. There are no splits or lifting in the veneer. The Tenite escutcheons on these sets usually have some warpage, but the escutcheon on this set is in about the best condition I have seen. A beautiful brass Art Deco escutcheon surrounds the pushbuttons with station tabs. This Philco is a six-tube super-het and covers the standard broadcast and the old police and aviation short-wave band. The push button on/off switch has been replaced with a standard on/off switch with the volume knob, as the old push button mechanisms usually failed over time. The radio has been recapped and is playing very well, picking up all my local AM stations with no filter hum, not much to pick up on the police and aviation band anymore. The backs are usually always missing, but this radio has its original. About 13"W x 8"H x 6-1/2"D.
