Majestic 161 (1933)
Sold by Joe Millward on May 19, 2019
Listed price on date of sale - $1,499.00
Grigsby-Grunow Company started manufacturing radios in 1928 in Chicago. In 1933, they introduced the "smart sets." The Majestic 161 was not in any of the advertising for the "smart sets." The only mention of it was later in an ad for Gambles, who had bought the remaining inventory after the bankruptcy. We guess that it was available at the end of 1933, thus making it it possibly the last "smart set" model manufactured, since the company went bankrupt in February of 1934. They are one of the rarest and most desirable chrome grille "Smart sets." We went through the chassis and replaced all of the capacitors, out-of-tolerance resistors, checked the tubes and replaced where needed. The radio was aligned and plays great across the dial. Gary did a fantastic job stripping and refinishing this rare radio. It has all of the original knobs, and I believe the grille cloth is original. The chrome is perfect and polished up to a beautiful luster. You seldom see this model, and never in this perfect condition. I've seem less than five of them for sale over the years. Here's a chance to own one of the rarest Majestic chrome grille radios! 18"H x 14"W x 9"D.
