Gloritone Apex 27

Gloritone Apex 27
Here's one you don't see every day. Check out this unique and exotic Gloritone Apex 27 cathedral manufactured in 1932 by United States Radio and Television Corp of Chicago. For a 1930s depression era set they spared no expense on the exotic and unusual veneer design on the front. Chassis is a five-tube TRF and is very minimal, as was customary in keeping with the tight budgets of depression era radios. Note the strange upside down tube orientation and dial scaled from 0 to 100 instead of marking it with actual frequency units. I spent a lot if extra time stuffing the original caps with new ones to maintain originality. All caps and resistors replaced and full alignment. I had to repair several chips in the front veneer, and the knob is not original. I went overboard with 15 coats of lacquer to give it a nice, slick finish. This will make a real eye popper in your collection and you are not likely to see another like it.  $325.00. (1680010)
