Stewart-Warner 1231 "Troubadour" (1933)

Stewart-Warner 1231 "Troubadour" (1933)
Sold by Mike Boessen on October 29, 2019
Listed price on date of sale - $279.00
Here's a nifty little Stewart-Warner 1231 "Troubadour" from 1933. Stewart-Warner must have been selling these things by the pound because this little gem is built like a tank. Quite heavy for its size, it is very well designed, stoutly constructed, and quite attractive. The restoration was done by a previous owner. I touched up the finish and put six coats of nitrocellulose lacquer on it. The knobs were not correct so I made new ones out of black walnut. It has one small crack in the veneer on the front and one small blotch on the lower left side, but presents very nicely. The actual shade is a little darker than my photographs. I replaced all of the resistors and capacitors that hadn't been already, put in a good set of tubes and gave it a full alignment. I removed the miserable antenna volume control and replaced it with much superior audio stage volume control. The receiver is fairly good for a four tuber. The speaker is larger than many radios of this size and it is a pretty good sounding little set. Priced to sell! 11-1/2"H x 9"W x 7"D, shipping weight 16 pounds.
