Gilfillan 510 (1934)

Gilfillan 510 (1934)
Sold by Joe Millward on April 11, 2019
Listed price on date of sale - $425.00
Gilfillan Bros. was a premier radio manufacturer located in Los Angeles, California and they produced radios from 1921 and continued into the 1950's. Gilfillan was the only company on the West Coast that had permission to produce super-heterodyne radios under the RCA patent. Between 30 and 40 companies built their radios at Gilfillan. The Gilfillan 510 is a beautiful and striking mantle radio with its Ebony cabinet, American Walnut and Birdseye Maple veneers accented with a gold stripe. This is the first one for sale at the Attic and there's little information of this model on the internet. This five-tube, two-band (AM,SW) radio has four controls, but only two can be seen from the front. The rear controls are the band switch for BC/SW and for the tone control. This beautiful radio has been completely restored electronically with new long-lasting capacitors. The tubes tested like new. The resistors have been checked and replaced as needed. A safety fuse and an audio cable were added. A precise alignment was done allowing this radio to play with great tone and sensitivity. The chassis, speaker and wood knobs are all perfect and original to the set. 13-1/2"W x 10"H x 7-1/2"D.
