General Electric E-52 (1937)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

General Electric E-52 (1937)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

Here's a compact mantle style five-tube GE featuring AM and Short Wave. It has a unique slide rule dial that sits in front of the speaker and lights brightly to grab your attention. There's a separate two position tone control knob for your treble and bass listening pleasure. The chassis has been gone through with all new wax and filter capacitors, a strong tested set of tubes. The controls were cleaned and lubricated to make them move as smoothly as they did when new. Requires its long wire to be attached to an external antenna source to receive stations. This is one of those circuits where the antenna is connected directly to the volume control, so the louder you turn the volume, the stronger the stations come in. There is no AVC, so you have to adjust the volume as you tune. As such, my standard add-on 3.5mm cord could not be installed on this unit. The cabinet was totally refinished using toners and topped with a light coat of clear enamel for durability and sheen. New grille cloth. 12-3/4"W x 8-1/2"H x 7"D.
