Aetna 451 (1937)

Aetna 451 (1937)
Sold by David Martin on November 27, 2017
Listed price on date of sale - $395.00
Aetna Radio, the "in-house" brand for Walgreens Drug Stores during the 1930's, was obviously a Detrola designed cabinet and chassis. Many retailers turned to companies such as Detrola, to produce private branded radios for their own stores. The multicolored backlit dial, with the airplane style pointer, is amazingly beautiful in a dimly lit room--stunning graphics! This lovely cabinet has been refinished using the very finest grain fillers, toning and finishing lacquers, producing a gorgeous finish. The electronics have been completely restored (no shortcut repairs and it is internally fused for your safety), and it plays very nicely on the AM and shortwave bands. I've added an MP3 input for your listening enjoyment should you wish listen to your own supplied music. 14-1/2"W x 11"H x 8"D.
