Crosley 154 (1933)
Crosley 154 (1933)
This adorable little Crosley 154 came to me in absolutely horrible condition, but it is the only example of this radio I am aware of, so I wanted to restore it. The front veneer was in very bad condition, but I spruced it up the best I could. A lot of flaws remain in the otherwise nice finish after 80 years of obviously hard living. The photo finish is gone from the lower left and right columns. The speaker is not original and has a couple of patches by a previous servicer. I had to paint the chassis. Crosley employed regeneration in the IF circuit to give it the gain of a five-tuber. It has the 1930s style antenna volume control, so you have to turn it up to pick up weak stations. The gold sparkle in the luxurious Brown Lurex grille cloth doesn't show up in the photos but is very elegant. While it has some shortcomings, this radio is extremely rare. None has ever sold on the attic, and the one on Radio Museum is this one. Despite its blemishes, this really is a little cutie, and if you're a Crosley guy, I'm betting you don't have one of these. Requires an external antenna. 12-1/2"H x 10"W x 8"D.  $299.00. (1680106)
