Westinghouse WR-214 (1936)
Westinghouse WR-214 (1936)
NEW!George Westinghouse started the Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company of Pittsburgh PA. in 1886. He competed with Edison on AC power distribution with the help of employee Nikola Tesla. Westinghouse formed RCA, purchased GE, AT&T and Marconi. In 1919 they started producing radios, and in 1920 started broadcasting on KDKA. The WR-214 is a ten-tube, four-band (AM,SWx3) radio. The largest tombstone they made, it was top of the line in 1937. This radio is a great performer and has an unusual tuning eye location in the middle of the grille. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. the resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where necessary. A hew power cord, safety fuse, audio input cable and antenna lead were installed. Gary stripped this gorgeous radio and ended up with a "piano" lacquer finish. The Walnut veneer with a contrasting vertical band of quilted Maple is stunning. The original knobs, chassis and speaker are present. A period correct grille cloth was added. This radio is very hard to find, and you're truly not going to find one anywhere in this condition! 24"H x 17-1/2"W x 11"D.  $1,495.00. (1600432)
