Packard-Bell 5F (1941)
(Plaskon tube table radio)

Packard-Bell 5F (1941)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

This five-tube Packard-Bell is an entry level set akin to the Philco Transitone line. Similarly, this set also saw production that lasted from pre-war to post war 1940's. This is an early production model that uses a power transformer coupled with 6-volt tubes and field coil speaker, an unusual combination for a compact radio. What sets this set apart from others of its ilk is the beautiful ivory Plaskon cabinet that literally glows in the dark from the dial light and tubes inside. A very cool effect of these Plaskon cabinet radios. This one is beautifully preserved with only a few very minor superficial blemishes. Amazing for being over 80 years old! It has a new crystal-clear dial cover and original Plaskon knobs unique to this set (very difficult to find). It receives all of my local stations with its built-in loop antenna. It has been recapped, tubes tested strong, controls cleaned & lubricated. A nice time capsule from the "year of infamy." 9-1/4"W x 6-1/2"HJ x 6"D.
