Automatic "Tom Boy" (1947)
(cloth/leather tube portable radio)

Automatic "Tom Boy" (1947)

Automatic Radio Mfg. Boston, MA [1920-1957]. They were famous for the "Tom Thumb" series of radios started in the 1920's and manufactured radios into the 1950's. Automatic made all sorts of radios from wood, to Bakelite and two models made of Catalin. The Tom Thumb name fits perfectly, as both of the Catalin radios made by the company are some of the smallest radios ever made during the 1930's. Unusual model "Tomboy" by Automatic Radio Mfg Co Inc. This is a four-tube Superhet which runs on batteries 1.5V + 67.5V. It is a wood box covered by two-tone leatherette material (one is alligator, other smooth)…no cracks or chips. A leather handle on top makes for a portable radio! Nice & small portable in excellent un-retouched condition. Under the handle is stamped "C8308” (not sure of the meaning). All original including covering, knobs, dial, speaker, grille cover, factory back & handle. Great restoration project for radio enthusiasts or just use as a unique display in your home! About 9"W x 5"H x 4"D.  $125.00. (1640278)
