Detrola 134A (1937)

Detrola 134A (1937)
Detrola was founded in 1931 in Detroit. They produced radios for Western Auto Supply (Truetone) and Sears (Silvertone) as well as their own brand. At one time they produced radios for 100 different brands. Detrola became the sixth largest manufacturer of radios in America, and later struggled to keep up due to union problems and high production costs. They ceased operations in 1948. The 134A is a four-tube, two-band (SB,SW) radio. It was one of the first radios to use a new plastic called Plaskon in combination with its wood cabinets. The radio had been gone through recently by the previous owner, a good friend of ours that does great work. The radio is strong performer across the dial and has a ton of volume for such a small set. We added a new power cord and audio cable. Gary stripped and refinished the cabinet to a "piano" lacquer finish and it's gorgeous! With its Plaskon bezel and knobs, this unique radio is seldom seen. The radio would be a nice bedside set, or a kitchen radio. 13"W x 8"H x 7"D.  $399.00. (1600238)
