Sparton 628 Tombstone (1938)

Sparton 628 Tombstone (1938)
NEW!Like many companies in the early 1900's, Sparks-Withington of Jackson MI, made products for farm implements. As the automobile industry came along, they made hub caps, electric horns and brake drums. In 1926, they produced the first electric radio. In 1934, they produced the first "VisoGlo" tuning indicator tube. The model 628 was the top-of-the-line table radio in 1938. This six-tube, three-band (SB,SW,Police) is a strong performer producing room-filling volume through an 8-inch speaker. The capacitors have been replaced, tubes and resistors checked and replaced where needed. We added a safety fuse, audio cable and a new power cord. Gary stripped this Art Deco walnut cabinet, and worked his magic using the best toners and grain fillers. A few coats of lacquer and some polishing, a new reproduction grille cloth and the original knobs, one stunning Spartan radio is ready for your collection. This is a large radio, but it will be professionally packed insuring a safe delivery. 21"H x 16"W x 12"D.  $995.00. (1600201)
