Zenith 6-D-311 with Original Box (1939)


Zenith 6-D-311 with Original Box (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
1939 produced some of the most beautiful radio case designs, but none better than this Zenith tabletop set, which is an icon of the Art Deco period. It was designed by Robert Budlong, one of Zenith's most prolific radio engineers in the 1930's. This beautiful completely original Bakelite set with its streamline shape was described as Franciscan Brown in color and originally sold for $14.95. The case is in excellent condition, with no cosmetic issues like chips, cracks or hairline cracks, and retains a great original showroom shine. It was designed with just a short antenna wire, but I have added and attached this antenna wire to a small loop antenna inside the case to really enhance reception, and all of my local AM station come in clearly. The chassis was checked completely by a pro, and everything needing changing was done. This model has the more rare and desirable Zenith black dial. The dial lamp works fine and the beautiful Art Deco dial really lights up. It also has a nice replacement back on the set, styled as the original. The radio comes with its original Zenith shipping box in good condition. About 10-1/2"W x 6-1/2"H x 7"D.
