Zenith S-829 "Chrome Front" Tombstone (1935)


Zenith S-829 "Chrome Front" Tombstone (1935)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Three of the rarest and most sought after Zenith models are the 835, 829, and the 809, the gorgeous "chrome front" Art Deco radios from 1935. These grilles were designed by Rosenow and Company, who also designed all of the Majestic "smart set" chrome grilles. The S-829 was a revised model with an extended short wave dial with a lot more efficient circuitry. This seven-tube, two-band radio (SB,SW) was sold with a money-back guarantee that insured the best short wave reception. Blake replaced all of the capacitors, checked tubes and resistors and replaced if out of tolerance. He installed a safety fuse, audio cable and a new power cord. Gary continues to amaze folks across the country with his masterful cabinet restorations. The radio was stripped and sanded, grain filler applied. Then lacquer was applied, sanded and buffed out by hand. These "piano" lacquer finishes are better than new! The radio has its original knobs, grille cloth, speaker and chassis. Coming soon is another model 809 as well. I can safely say these are some of the finest restored 1935 "800 series" radios in the world! 18-1/2"H x 15"W x 8-1/2"D.
