Treasure Chest Radio (early 1930s)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

There are a number of antique radios that look like treasure chests, but I believe this is the earliest, and best of them all. I have seen three of these sets in my 40+ years of collecting. The maker is unknown, and this set is the best of the three. This metal cased set uses two 224A tubes, a 235, 80 rectifier (280 printed on socket), and a 47 output tube (247 printed on socket). So you know this was early 1930s. This set was restored in 2004 by Radio Attic's own John Hartman of Antique Electric Radios. As a tribute to John's skills, it plays well when tested. 12"W x 8"H x 7-1/2"D.
