Philco 90 Cathedral (1932)

Philco 90 Cathedral (1932)
Philco 90 Cathedral (1932)
Sold by Lew Magrish on January 2, 2013
Listed price on date of sale - $699.00
Long recognized as the classic cathedral radio, the Philco 90 is a beauty. Designed by the famous Edward Combs, the "90" was the very top of the line. This nine-tube powerhouse is a tremendous super-het. The radio had the very latest technology, including automatic volume control, a dramatic improvement to earlier sets. The condition is very good considering it is 80 years old. It has all the factory-installed parts with a nice correct reproduction speaker cloth. The radio has been refinished with a very high luster lacquer finish. Note how dramatic the book-matched veneers are highlighted on the front. There is a minor amount of veneer damage on the arch due to shrinkage over the decades. My technician has done a complete and perfect repair. The radio plays loud and clearly with an excellent level of selectivity. The radio has a fine silk reproduction replacement cord with a new Bakelite plug for your safe use. A "Grand Cathedral" at 19"H x 17"W x 12"D.
