Minerva W-710 (1947)
Minerva W-710 (1947)
I had never heard of Minerva corporation of New York until I saw this little gem at an antique mall a while back. The W-710 outclasses a lot of radios in its market segment with an extremely well made, hand rubbed solid Walnut cabinet, a dedicated RF amplifier tube, a flywheel tuner control for speedy tuning, and a large, 6-inch speaker for excellent sound reproduction. The six-tube chassis is a good performer, receiving fairly well on the internal antenna with an external wire for more distant stations. A large, attractive dial lets you tune without your reading glasses. I touched up a previous cabinet job and overcoated it with five coats of Lacquer. The resulting finish is very nice, with a few minor flaws and one small crack in the upper right corner. One small, 1/2" repair to the speaker cone. Minerva was a small company, but don't let that deter you. This is an attractive, well made and very good performing radio. Very few of these have survived. Only one has sold on the Attic. Minerva was the goddess of wisdom and art. I'm sure it would please her if you help me save her namesake radio! 15-1/2"W x 9-1/2"H x 8-1/2"D.  $225.00. (1680097)
