Philco radios sold!
|Sold by Lew Magrish on October 18, 2015|
Listed price on date of sale - $899.00
|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 and speaker cloth. 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. Les has done a complete and perfect repair. The radio plays loud and clear with an excellent level of selectivity. Les also added a mini-jack, allowing you to attach an external device. This will allow you an unlimited choice of content. 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.|
