Sparton 517 (1937)


Sparton 517 (1937)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Here we have a gorgeous Sparton version of the "cube" manufactured by the Sparks-Withington Company, located in Jackson, Michigan. This radio was created by the famous industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague, and was available in three finishes: wood, ivory and ebony. The 517 is a five-tube, two-band (SB,SW) radio. Blake replaced all of the capacitors, checked the resistors and tubes, replacing where needed. A new power cord, antenna lead and audio cable were installed. The radio has great sensitivity across the dial and plays with plenty of volume. Gary stripped the walnut cabinet, then grain-filled and painted the cabinet using high-quality products. He ended up with a beautiful, hand-polished "piano" lacquer finish. The knobs, dial scale and top-mounted speaker are original. These sets don't come up much these days, and this one is "like-new" and ready for your collection! 13-1/2"W x 13"H x 9"D.
