Philco 90 Cathedral (1931)

Philco 90 Cathedral (1931)
Again we have the classic Philco 90 designed by Edward Combs. These radios are large and heavy to today's standards. Despite that the Philco 90 was referred to as a "midget" radio, much smaller and offered a much more attractive design. In the 1920s and early '30s the only radios available were the "coffin" style and large, heavy consoles. The model 90 also used the new, better performing superheterodyne technology which was eventually used by all radio manufacturers. There is a four-step tone control for better control over the radio's tone. Blake went through the radio replacing the Bakelite block capacitors. Checked all of the tubes and resistors, replacing where necessary. He installed a cable for an external device, and a safety fuse was added. A new period correct cloth power cord was installed. This radio was aligned, and has wonderful tone and volume with great sensitivity across the dial. A gorgeous semi-gloss finish has been done. The radio retains its original speaker and knobs. We installed a new reproduction Philco 90 grille cloth. It's an awesome radio, beautifully restored and ready to compliment your collection. 18-1/2"H x 17-1/2"W x 12"D  $995.00. (1600193)
