R.K. Radio Labs 6 "Radio Keg" (1933)


R.K. Radio Labs 6 "Radio Keg" (1933)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The Radio Keg 6 is an AC/DC, five-tube superhet with 6-1/2" speaker that fills the back end. Radios with a theme, such as Mickey Mouse, and similar models could be classified as novelty radios. But, those sets looked like radios. Following this trend in design that came into prominence since the legalization of beer, the "Radio Keg" of R.K. Radio Laboratories, 6300 Northwest Highway, Chicago is encased in a small, quarter sawed white oak, walnut finished keg with burnished copper hoops and spigot. The radio has both good volume and tone quality and was freshly restored by previous owner. I recently acquired it and all I've done is wipe it down with Howard's restore. Plays and displays beautifully. Kind of a rare set, especially in this original condition. Nice lighted dial as well. It also maintains its original cork and spigot for authenticity. There is some notion that these were made to be played/displayed for bars? I can't confirm that, but these sets are often favorites in bar areas, family rooms, and game rooms, man cave and yes, radio collection. 10-1/2"H x 8"W x 10-1/2"D.
