Zenith 6-S-254 Console (1938)

Zenith 6-S-254 Console (1938)
Sold by Joe Millward on July 23, 2019
Listed price on date of sale - $1,399.00
Zenith continued producing great radios in 1938. The introduction of "Walton" series radios, the first triangular dial; with seven-tube count and higher, radios included motorized tuning, eye tubes, and dial plates that changed with the waveband. The lower tube count radios didn't have any of those options, but offered a five-point tone control, bass boost, "split-second" tuning control and "tell-tale" controls. This six-tube, three-band radio was smaller than most consoles. Utilizing a ten-inch speaker, the radio has a lot of volume and very good adjustable fidelity. We replaced all of the capacitors, checked tubes and resistors and replaced them where necessary. A safety fuse and external cable we installed. We aligned the radio and it just flat-out performs. Gary stripped the cabinet and refinished it using high-quality paint, toner and lacquer for a "factory fresh" finish. Note the beautiful quilted maple strips. We used a period correct grille cloth and the wood Zenith knobs are original. Included in the asking price are packing and shipping. This radio is gorgeous and a wonderful example of American quality craftsmanship from 1938! 40"H x 24-1/2"W x 14"D.
