Majestic radios sold!
|Sold by Mike Boessen on October 17, 2019|
Listed price on date of sale - $500.00
|The brand name is absolutely appropriate for this radio. The effect of the Gothic stained-glass window look on the front of this instrument is nothing short of majestic. This rare beauty was manufactured by the Grigsby-Grunow Company of Chicago in 1932. I think it is one of the most beautiful tombstone radios ever made. I refinished it in the original color with 18 coats of nitrocellulose lacquer. I repaired a few chips in the veneer, and a cigarette burn in the top. The knobs, dial, and grille cloth are reproductions. The set had a couple of large aftermarket chassis mounted capacitors in it when I got it. I removed those and put metal plugs in the holes. I replaced all the capacitors and resistors, and gave it a full alignment. Receiver sensitivity is the best I have ever seen in a seven-tube radio. I went to a lot of trouble and expense to find high testing, original Majestic metallized tubes where they were originally used. This is a radio you don't see every day. I hope someone falls in love with it.|
