Wells-Gardner 7J (1934)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)

Wells-Gardner 7J (1934)

Here is a 1934 Wells-Gardner 7J series that I have never seen before, much less laid my hands on. So ornate and different. Restored completely in/out. Wells-Gardner & Co., Chicago: Trade names: Arcadia, Blackhawk, Fearnola, Fideltone, Granada, Great Northern, Gulbransen, Hudson, Lexington, Skelco, Sky Rover, Solar, Star, Supertone, True Value, Truetone, Universal, Wells-Gardner, Whelco. Wells-Gardner was acquired by Gulbransen in 1930 but the name was kept as a division of Gulbransen. The chassis or whole sets from Wells-Gardner or Gulbransen were also sold to catalog distributors like Lafayette, for instance chassis C or DG from 1929/30 for Duo-Symphonic. Very detailed & uncommon dial & escutcheons. Within the main dial are two additional second-hand dials (one for On/Off/volume & other is for Tone Control). The grille cloth is era correct & really is a nice add. The shadow meter works, but not as well as I'd like, but rather useless anyway & adds little to functionality. Plays very well with clarity & sensitivity. Eye catcher that's ready for play/display. Clearly the radio is in a unique shape and a relatively large cabinet offering a big sound quality. Wells supplied the chassis which is a super sophisticated seven-tube super-het offering both AM and shortwave. I have never had this model in the years of my collection/restoration hobby and doubt you will see another. 16-1/2"H x 15"W x 12"D.  $549.00. (1640293)
