Freshman Unknown model (1932)
(wood tube cathedral radio)

Freshman Unknown model (1932)

Rare is often over-used, but in some cases it is the only word to properly describe an item as in this case with this offering. I can find no other. The bezel states "Freshman Products" & the factory plate on rear states "B.R.C." Chicago serial 166769. BRC is Belmont Radio Corp & they made radios for: Classique, Crusader, Freshman, Goodyear Wings, Imperial, Starck Classique, Truetone. This Freshman model unknown. No one I know has never seen another one (super rare). According to knowledgeable long time collectors I spoke to, Freshman Radio was based in Chicago, and they made two beautiful radios as follows: the "Master Piece" and this model along with very few other models; This baby not only is super rare, its condition is also super rare. Ornate scrolling & cut-outs, the Deco lines of the cabinet, waterfall top, super clean chassis with original speaker plus everything else including the knobs, dial etc. The new grille repro cloth is era correct and also very attractive. What a great looking dial bezel with the ship sailing to add to the décor. The dial light follows the channel. It has been completely restored electronically & plays very strong. The previous owner also added Bluetooth capability using the flip switch you can see neatly attached to chassis + jack. It also plays extremely well on Bluetooth. I have been playing & enjoying it for hours at a time. 18"H x 14-3/4"W x 10-3/4"D.  $850.00. (1640283)
