Zenith 5-S-127 (1937)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)
Zenith 5-S-127 (1937)
NEW!"The Quality Goes In Before The Name Goes On." This was the slogan created by "Commander" Eugene F. McDonald Jr., who ran Zenith for 30 years. Much of the innovation in manufacturing and advertisement came from the Commander. By the 1930's he had introduced many things: short wave radio, push-button tuning, rural Windcharger stations, the big black dials, the first TV stations in Chicago and the USA. McDonald was also very influential in forming the FCC. By 1950, sales had surpassed $100 million and Zenith employed 5,000 people. This five-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) Art Deco style radio is a gorgeous example of function and design. All of the wax/paper capacitors were replaced with Mylar equivalences. The tubes and resistors have been tested and replaced as needed. A new power cord, safety fuse, audio input cable and antenna lead have been added. The radio receives plenty of stations across the dial. The radio was refinished by the previous owner was a semi-gloss finish.The original knobs, chassis and speaker are with the radio. A reproduction grille cloth was installed. This particular Zenith has a different but gorgeous look to it. A very unique 5-S-127! 19"H x 13"W x 9"D.  $749.00. (1600448)
