Philco 90A (1931)

Philco 90A (1931)
Sold by Lew Magrish on January 14, 2015
Listed price on date of sale - $799.00
RE-LISTED AS 0961109 3/01/2015 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. This is the earliest version, using a power pair of #45 tubes. There is a very sensitive distance/local switch on the back of the set. The condition is very good considering it is 80 years old. Clearly the radio is in a terrific original cabinet. It has all the factory-installed parts and speaker cloth. The radio is perhaps the finest example I have ever offered Note the dial is backlit by the dial light, difficult to get a decent photo. The markings on the dial show clearly when the radio is on. Note how dramatic the book-matched veneers are highlighted on the front. The collector did a very nice job. 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.
