|We look for radios to restore on a daily basis, and as we say "even a blind mouse occasionally finds cheese". This radio showed up on Craigslist, and I couldn't get over there fast enough to buy it! The radio didn't play and had an amateur restoration on the cabinet. This eight-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) has the large, golden dial with the extended range (1850kcs) AM band. The "Egyptian" motif cabinet and dial has an eye tube that looks like the sun, with projecting rays. Very unusual, and was used on several console and table radios in Silvertone's "Jubilee" series. We replaced all of the capacitors, checked and replaced resistors and tubes where needed, and aligned the radio for peak performance. The "tuning eye" tube was replaced and is bright and active. A safety fuse was added and we installed a cable so you can use an external listening device. The cabinet had a broad base that gently tapers in towards the top, giving the radio its "Pyramid" nickname. Gary did his usual masterful work stripping and refinishing to a "factory fresh" lacquer finish. A very rare, beautiful and collectable radio. 21"H x 16"W x 11"D.|
