Garod 831 "Two Worlds" (1937)


Garod 831 "Two Worlds" (1937)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Unique and rare,"mystery" radio, but there is just nothing written on it that I can find. In all my reference and price guides, the only reference I could find was in Stein's "Machine Age to Jet Age 2" and all he has is a picture and claims it to me model 830 whereas, this one clearly has 831 stamped on chassis. His guide prices it at 500+. Nostalgia Air has the schematic, but no pics. I cannot find where any others were listed, sold or even mentioned?? Having said that, I will say that this one has had a complete restore and plays well with short antenna. The large beautiful dial has the "two worlds" and the second hand fine tuning which is really cool. There are four working pilot lights and when the bands are switched, they light up that respective portion of the dial and a small circle opposite the beautiful green tuning eye, shows the corresponding band # (1, 2, or 3, 2 being broadcast). This is kind of a "Caddy" for that era. I will let the pictures do the talking. It is a beautiful radio and fully restored inside and out, tho there are a couple of blemishes on the cabinet, but will leave any touch ups for the new owner. 16-1/2"W x 9-1/2"H x 10"D; weighs approx 15 lbs.
