Zenith 5-R-216 "Cube" (1938)
Sold by Lew Magrish on October 27, 2018
Listed price on date of sale - $399.00
Here is a collector favorite. These extremely reliable models are compact in size and offer a dramatic level of performance. This particular model is a five-tube (All American Five) chassis that plays on the AM/Broadcast band only. Note the black dial, a highly lauded feature of the middle to late 1930's Zenith radios along with the iconic wood "Z" factory knobs. This example has been nicely refinished in an accurate manner. I would describe the color as red mahogany, with a fine lacquer finish. The work is good and the only issue showing age is a slight stress crack by the speaker grille on the left side. This is a common issue for a cabinet now 80+ years old. Les has completed his professional repairs and the radio plays in a terrific manner. Les added a mini-jack to allow your connection of any modern device. It also will accept a Bluetooth receiver available for $25 additional. A great performer in a modest sized radio! 12"W x 9-1/2"H x 10"D.
