Philco 40-125 (1940)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Philco 40-125 (1940)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

This six-tube, AM/SW Philco comes from the first year Philco used the new miniature Loctal tubes. Meaning, they could have a higher tube count in a smaller cabinet. This set featured five push-button station preset buttons that can be individually tuned to your favorite AM stations. The sixth button on the right must be depressed for manual dial tuning. The chassis has been totally recapped, weak tubes replaced, new line-cord and controls cleaned and lubricated for smooth operation. The cabinet was totally refinished using multi color toners and topped off with a spray of clear enamel for sheen and durability. Original pointed knobs and fiber board back is intact, featuring a label indicating this set was able to receive television sound in those early pre-war days when television was still in its experimental stage. It is a strong player too, receiving all of my local stations easily with its powerful built-in loop antenna. A brass inlayed carrying handle tops off this very attractive multi veneered cabinet. 11"W x 9"H x 7-1/2"D.
