Philco 41-255T with Original Instruction Booklet (1941)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Philco 41-255T with Original Instruction Booklet (1941)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

This nine-tube, three-band (AM/SW/Police) Philco is basically the model 41-285X console housed in a massive table model cabinet. It's big, heavy and imposing but very stylish with its slant front cabinet designed by Philco to make it easier to see the dial when you're standing over the set (the no stoop, no squat, no squint models from 1938-42). The cabinet was nicely refinished, and a new exact reproduction plastic escutcheon was installed to replace the hopelessly cracked and warped original Tenite. The glass slide rule dial really pops thanks to no less than five dial lamps, four just for band/pushbutton indicators. The chassis has strong tested tubes, all capacitors have been replaced (even the hard to get to ones under the pushbutton assembly), newer line cord, new repro rubber corner mounts. Controls cleaned and lubricated for smooth operation. It receives all of my local stations with its built-in wire loop antenna. SW & Police band more active at night. The left side pushbutton off on still works. The rest are station preset buttons which can be tuned to your local stations. And if you find nothing to listen to on AM, use the AUX cord I added to play your own content through the radio. It comes with its original owner's manual/instruction booklet, which are virtually impossible to find! Shipping will be a bit higher on this one due to its large size and weight. 23 pounds, 19-1/2"W x 11"H x 14"D.
