MY WOODEN RADIOS





This is a Silvertone model 6050 from 1946. Seems to be fairly common.


This is a Silvertone model 7037 from 1941.


This is a Silvertone model 7039 from 1941. This one has wonderful sound. Besides having a tone control, it has base and treble boost controls.


This is a SIlvertone model 7134 from 1946. This cabinet is a little rough, but it plays well.


This is a Silvertone Model 6320 from 1938. This is a real beauty and very small.


This is a Silvertone model 6251 from 1939. This one is fully restored and beautiful. It tunes in very distant stations and sounds great.


This is a Silvertone model 6220-A. Not sure of the year. It's a farm battery radio. Other than the piece of broken veneer in front, the cabinet is in pretty nice shape.


This is a Silvertone model 7031-A from 1941. This piece is in the museum.


This is a Silvertone chassis number 101.571-1 from about 1940.


This is a 1942 Philco Transitone model PT3. The PT3 featured a cabinet finished entirely in Di-Noc or "photofinish" over wood. Di-Noc is still made today as wall and floor covering, mostly for commercial use. This radio is in nice overall condition and works well. It's for sale for $99.00. E-mail me for info if you're interested.


This is a Motorola model 54A16117 made in the 1940's is about all I know. This radio orginally had a photo finish cabinet, but it was in poor shape, so I had to sand it off and refinish it. It looks and plays really nice, but doesn't look original, unfortunately.


This one is a 1924 RCA Radiola model III-A. It doesn't have the tubes because they cost more than the radio. It'll have to get a tube conversion if it should ever play again. But the radio is in fantastic condition.


Thie styling of this Silvertone model 1481 cathedral just caught my eye and I had to have it. It was made in 1933. It works and sounds quite well.


This Silvertone is a model 6120 made in 1939. I love the cabinet design of this set.


Here's a model 6130 Silvertone. It was made in 1939. It has AM and shortwave and has the green tuning eye.


This Silvertone is a model 1923 tombstone. I refinished this one to be close to original. This is a battery farm radio using three 45 volt batteries at 135 volts instead of the usual 90 volts. It also uses 3 volts on the tube heaters instead of 1 1/2. It's a beautiful radio.


This Silvertone model 1719 cathedral is definitely one of my favorite pieces. This one was made in 1933. Most of this cabinet staill has it's original finish. It really sounds great, probably because of it's huge speaker. It also plays really loud. This is an exceptional Silvertone.


this is an early 30's Ambassador 2492Y. I know nothing about Ambassadors. I can't find anything on it. But, I have one.


This Atwater-Kent from the mid 30's I bought already reconditioned and playing great. It's a small tombstone, model unknown to me. It has the tone control in the back. sounds and plays good.


 

I love this Silvertone. It came to me in pieces in a box. It has power tuning, just hold the button of choice in and the tuner powers itself around to the station preset. It sounds good too. This is model 7241.

Here is an Everyready battery operated radio from what I believe to be late 1920’s. The speaker is original to this radio. This set really works good.

This is an RCA model 28X from about 1942. This radio has a really good chassis and sounds wonderful. It has AM and shortwave bands. When I got it, the cabinet was in pieces, but all parts were there.

This SIlvertone, model 7120, is very similar to the one above. It too is a battery set, but this one runs on 6 volts so it could be used with a car battery or windmill power of the time.

This AM only Silvertone is model R1161 made in 1941. It featured push button tuning and tone control.

I had to refinish the cabinet as well as restore the electronics on this Silvertone model 7036A. This one was made in 1942 and featured push button tuning with AM and shortwave bands.

When I bought this Philco, I intended to restore it and sell it. When I was done, I couldn’t sell it. This is model number 3762. I can’t find a date on it, but I’d guess early/mid 1930’s.

Darn it! Here’s another one I intended to restore and sell, but just couldn’t when it was done. The picture does it no justice. It has beautiful natural wood colors, I used no stains or coloring. This is a GE model H623 from 1940. It has AM and shortwave bands and 4 push button presets.
