Silver-Marshall T-694 (1935)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)

Silver-Marshall T-694 (1935)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

Very little is known about this rare six-tube tombstone. In fact, the only thing resembling a model number is "T-694" which is stamped on the bottom of the cabinet. The cabinet design was used on a model 736 so it could be either or somewhere in between. At any rate, it's the first example ever to appear on Radio Attic. Its Art Deco cabinet was refinished with multiple toners, featuring black accents, and topped off with a light coat of clear enamel. It has a brass tag on the front of the cabinet that says "Silver Marshall Manufacturing Co." with no traditional hyphen between Silver and Marshall. What is unique about this set is it's basically a standard fare five-tube mini tombstone, with the addition of a second #42 output tube. Yes, this set has push-pull audio! The AM/SW/police band chassis has been gone through with all new wax and filter capacitors, and all out of tolerance resistors replaced. Comes with a strong tested set of tubes. Nice cloth line cord and correct pattern grille cloth completes the extensive restoration. This set requires a long wire antenna to be connected to an external source for more distant/SW reception, or use the AUX cord to play your own audio through the radio. 15-1/4"H x 12"W x 9"D.
