Gloritone 26 Cathedral (1931)

Gloritone 26 Cathedral (1931)
NEW!Check out this girl next door manufactured by United States Radio and Television Corporation from 1930 to 1931. Not a cheerleader, but pretty darn good looking! This radio had a nice cabinet, but the finish was badly deteriorated so I stripped it and dressed it up fit for church with 15 coats of nitrocellulose lacquer. There are a few very minor flaws in the finish, but overall it is absolutely gorgeous. The dial is a little stained, and I had to fabricate a tube shield as that was missing. I modified the volume control from the lousy antenna swamping type to audio stage volume control. All the tubes test good as new. I replaced all of the capacitors, resistors as necessary and gave it a full alignment. Receiver sensitivity is quite good for a 1930 design. This is one of the nicest examples of the fairly rare Gloritone model 26 you are likely to see anywhere and would be a standout in any collection. 18"H x 15"W x 8-1/2"D; 23.31 pounds.   $299.00.
