Philco 45C "Butterfly" (1935)
(wood tube table radio)

Philco 45C "Butterfly" (1935)

Here is a very nice, working, coveted Philco "Butterfly" ready for play/display. This is a model 45C from 1935 and is still a marvelous radio from the Philly factory which really turned out some lifetime lasting radios. This is a recent estate find & since I already have one in my collection, I am offering this one to The Attic world. It is in as found condition & all I've done to it is some light cleaning & added a new repro back from FYLP which looks & fits perfectly. The previous owner obviously took good care of this one. The radio performs well, picking up stations across the dial with only a short wire antenna (supplied). Love the lighted "slit marker" pointer. Nice clean chassis as well as original knobs, speaker, dial, etc. The grille cloth is era correct replacement and very close to original pattern & really shows well with the contrasting tones that this radio is finished in. Just a great looker & shows why the "Butterfly" meme applies. These are becoming scarce and it is certainly one to be proud of. Heavy, 30+ lbs., but I pack well for safe SH. 16"W x 9-1/2"H x 8"D.  $579.00. (1640263)
