Philco 90 Cathedral (1933)

Philco 90 Cathedral (1933)
Sold by Lew Magrish on August 22, 2018
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. The condition is very good considering it is 85+ years old. It has all the factory-installed parts and correct original speaker cloth. The radio has an original finish with a bit of touch up on the top (see photo), and a high luster, hand rubbed lacquer finish. Note the dial is back lit 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. Les has done a complete and perfect repair. The radio plays loud and clearly with an excellent level of selectivity. The radio has a fine Rayon reproduction replacement cord with a new Bakelite plug for your safe use. He added a mini-jack for your auxiliary input device. Bluetooth is available for an additional $25! 19"H x 17"W x 12"D.
