Continental Radio & Television (Admiral) B-125 (1936)


Continental Radio & Television (Admiral) B-125 (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
In 1929, 28 year old Ross Siragusa started making transformers and parts for the new American radio industry. He started the Continental Radio & Television Corporation in Chicago IL in 1934. In 1936 he acquired the Admiral trademark, which became the name of his company after WWII. In 1948, they started producing televisions and the rest is history. By 1950, along with radios, he was selling over a million TVs! The B-125 is a five-tube, two-band (SB,SW) radio. The set is a good performer with good sensitivity on both bands. We replaced all of the capacitors. The tubes and resistors were checked and replaced where needed. A new power cord was installed, along with an audio cable and a new antenna lead. Gary stripped and refinished the cabinet with a nice lacquer "piano" finish. The radio has the original knobs, speaker and glass dial. A reproduction grille cloth was installed. This radio was manufactured before the company became Admiral, so is pretty rare in that sense. A really nice piece for anyone's collection! 15"W x 9"H x 7"D.
