Stewart-Warner 1801 (1938)


Stewart-Warner 1801 (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This lovely tabletop radio from Stewart-Warner's 1938 model year is a superb example of late Art Deco design. A five-tuber + recent complete restore. Very clean rust-free chassis. Original 5-1/4-inch side speaker, it has plenty of volume and brilliant fidelity thru two grille clothed ends. This model has some nice showroom features like a brilliant gold front dial with brass bezel and a cabinet featuring bright walnut veneer with contrasting color elm burl piping running thru the middle. Craft Built cabinet + it retains that metal tag on factory wood back. Today, this attractive radio is sought after by collectors but almost never found restored to this near perfect condition. The gold dial displaying all the station frequencies is quite impressive, especially in a dim or dark room. Recent complete restore. The dial displays the two bands - BC or AM Broadcast (525-1750 kHz) and Shortwave (2200-17000 kHz) (nothing on this SW band). All letters and numbers of the main faceplate are legible and show virtually no signs of wear and it plays well across the broadcast band with short attached antenna. 13-1/2"W x 9"H x 10"D; 13 Pounds.
