Grunow 680 Tombstone (1935)


Grunow 680 Tombstone (1935)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
In 1933, Grunow Corporation of Chicago merged with U.S. Radio and Television to form General Household Utilities Company. From 1933 on, they continued with the brand Grunow, coming out in 1936 with "Teledial Twelve" nicknamed the "Shirley Temple" as the child star was used in advertising. The model 680 is a six-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) radio. Blake replaced all of the capacitors. He checked all of the resistors and tubes, replacing all out-of-tolerance components. An audio cable and new power cord were installed, along with a new antenna lead wire. The radio was aligned and plays strong across the dial with good sensitivity. Gary stripped the cabinet. He refinished the American Walnut, Black Walnut and Maple veneers using high quality toners and lacquer. The original speaker, chassis and dial are present and we installed a period-correct grille cloth. This is a really nice example of a model 680 and is priced right, ready for your collection! 18-1/2"H x 13-1/2"W x 9-1/2"D.
