Detrola 302 "Teardrop" (1939)


Detrola 302 "Teardrop" (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Detrola's triangular shaped "Teardrop" was a hit as soon as it landed in the radio dealer's stores in the early fall of 1939 and was intended to draw customers' attention to their new 1940 lineup. Introduced in the twenty-dollar price range, with recent designs improvements such as automatic volume control, self-starting synchronous clock, built in antenna and five-tube superheterodyne circuit, it was a big sales success! The electronics have been completely restored and for a smaller radio, it plays and sounds just like you would expect for a Detrola: very, very nice! The cabinet has been restored using the finest lacquers and grain fillers, with particular attention to detail, accenting the intricate veneer patterns and inlays. You should also notice that the original back, clock, clock switch and labels are in place as they should be, which is something you don't often see with this model. I must say this is quite a classic. 10"W x 9-3/4"H x 4-1/3"D.
