Atwater Kent 217 (1934)


Atwater Kent 217 (1934)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Nice and Sassy seven-tuber with unique look for sure. AK made some of the best traditional cathedral style radios but this model has a very distinctive arch design, sometimes called "Double-Wide" or "Barn Top," which sets it apart from all others. This model is not offered for sale often, very unique in style and design. It retains its outstanding original finish with amazing veneer and inlays. The radio has an original finish, in fact, all original parts, including grille cloth, knobs, brown crinkle coated speaker + transformer, backlit dial, escutcheon marker "217" as well as the brassy AK tube shields. Unrestored by me, but does play well across the dial. The power cord + antenna wires have been replaced which leads me to believe it has been restored by previous owner. Notice the beautiful diagonal cut veneer arched over top front as well as the panel below grille area. Just a nice accent to contrast with the other uses of mahogany and walnuts. The Philly AK factory did make some top of the line sets of that era. This is one of the cleanest chassis I've seen and nearly looks chrome, Shipping weight 35 pounds. 17"W x 14"H x 10-1/2"D.
