ERLA 271-A (1931)
(wood tube cathedral radio)

ERLA 271-A (1931)

This rather rare radio dating from the very early thirties is an impressive ERLA (Electrical Research Laboratories, Chicago) cathedral radio with a "flat top" and a Hammond clock in the center of the speaker grille. This is a special & unusual set with its "flat top" has a rather unique look for a cathedral. I believe the grille cloth to be original as are the knobs, speaker, dial etc. The case has been nicely refinished and restored by previous owner, & plays with great sound and selectivity with a supplied short antenna. Nice clean chassis & is a seven-tuber driven by a single 45 output! The electric clock also runs, but like all clocks of the era, is not self starting. It is easy to spin the clock into work, with the spinner in the back of the set. It is held in place by retaining clips and can be easily snapped into & out of cabinet. It is a quality one made by Hammond Clock, well known for a recognizable name and quality. This is a large set & the size alone, makes for the impressive appearance, but will require proper packaging & materials. I pack very well using over-sized box & all new materials. The weight is an impressive 42 pounds. The exceptional set would be a fine addition to any collection. 19"H x 14"W x 11"D.  $529.00. (1640286)
