Goldentone 3-X (1936)


Goldentone 3-X (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Goldentone was a small company which was located in Detroit. Whether or not they ever actually built any radios is questionable, since most of their sets were obviously products of other manufacturers. Among the known suppliers were Simplex, Admiral (Continental), Detrola, and others. This is a great looking and unusual shaped miniature wooden radio with wrap-around sides, front & back. The brass Goldentone tag is about the only identifying info I can find, tho the factory serial tag on chassis referenced General Electric, so I am at a loss the exact manufacturer nor model # even (3-X is a guess). It is a five-tube "cutie," but not a strong performer. Also I should mention the dial string is in place, but catches in a couple of spots, but does go to the limits. It does play pretty well with a long antenna wire (attached), but may need a longer wire for your area? It has what appears to be a factory wooden back. Very cool little radio, but can find little/no info anywhere, tho it does have some Detrola looks. Might be fun for someone to pursue. AT least it is a great "mystery" display and priced accordingly. Only 12"W x 8"H x 4-1/4"D & not very heavy.
