Monarch 5237 (1935)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)
Monarch 5237 (1935)
NEW!Once again, there isn't much info out there on Monarch radios. One source said they were out of Chicago, one source said they were made by King Manufacturing Company out of Buffalo. Monarch didn't manufacture anything themselves. Cabinets that were "left over" from Plant A...chassis by Detrola and others, branded for sale in Mom and Pop stores. The 5237 is a five-tube, two-band (AM,SW) radio. It shares the same tube lineup, knobs and dial scale as the Detrola 5X. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. A safety fuse, polarized power cord, audio input cable and a new antenna lead were installed. Gary stripped the cabinet of the old finish and ended up with a gorgeous "piano" lacquer finish. The base molding is a beautiful and unusual Greek key design. It's interesting that the Monarch badge was improperly installed t and it's partially covered up by the band-switch knob. The glass dial cover and dial scale are in perfect condition. The original knobs, speaker and chassis are with the set. This unique radio is priced to sell...make it part of your collection today! 15-1/4"H x 12"W x 7"D.  $495.00. (1600445)
