Aetna 605 (1936)
Sold by Lew Magrish on February 4, 2009
Listed price on date of sale - $399.99
Aetna Radios were the house brand for the Walgreen drugstore chain in the 1930s. Walgreen, like many of the major retailers, contracted their models from a large pool of nationally recognizable makers. This particular radio most likely made for them by Detrola Radio, which made a highly similar model in their own line. The radio is nothing less than first class. The woodworking of the cabinet, in original finish is deluxe. I believe the woods are walnut and mahogany. The internals reveal a fine and highly selective multiband receiver, with the dial changing as you switch the bands. This set has impressive looks and the sound to match. My technician has done a terrific restoration, replacing all of the old filters and caps. The balance of the components has been tested for factory correct values and as always, there is a fresh power cord and plug for your safe operation. 14-1/2"W x 12"H x 9"D.
