Philco 70 "Baby Grand" Cathedral (1931)

Philco 70 "Baby Grand" Cathedral (1931)
NEW!Philco introduced some very iconic radios in June of 1931. The Edward Combs designs became the quintessential cathedral radios, and the Philco 90 still has that claim to this day. The lowboy and highboy models were designed by Norman Bel Geddes. Philco sold several hundred thousand of these models, defining 1931 as one of the most profitable for the company. The model 70 is a seven-tube AM only radio. This entry level radio for Philco sold for $49.95 including tubes! Blake replaced all of the capacitors, including the ones found in the Bakelite "blocks." Tubes and resistors were checked and out=of-tolerance units were replaced. A safety fuse, audio cable and a new cloth covered power cord were installed. The radio picks up a lot of stations and produces wonderful fidelity with plenty of volume. Gary stripped the cabinet, did a bit of veneer work, and applied a beautiful satin finish. The radio has its original grille cloth, knobs, chassis and correct speaker. A fantastic example of the Philco 70 that sounds and displays like new! 18"H x 16-1/2"W x 10"D.  $749.00. (1600224)
