Algene AR-5-U Portable w/Snake Skin Case

Algene AR-5-U Portable w/Snake Skin Case

For the collector that has been looking for a radio in a red snake skin cosmetic case, look no further. The radio dates from the late 1940's and sports Lucite knobs, handle and grille. The case shows some wear, but overall in very good original condition including the grille cloth. The power cord is rather short given that you have to store it under the lid. The mirror is a little cloudy from age. It has a lighted dial. The set has been serviced and plays good. 11"W x 7-1/2"H x 6"D. $225.00. (0260697)

 

Atwater Kent 10A-4550 (1924)

Atwater Kent 10A-4550 (1924)

The AK 10A was produced in 1924 and offered in brown or black as model 4560. This is an extremely nice original example. The board retains the original finish with the model tag, but missing the warranty tag. The Bakelite is in excellent condition with no cracks or chips. There is some stain discoloration to the one coil. The brass has a beautiful patina with no corrosion. All the 01A tubes have tested good. Otherwise the set has not been serviced and is sold untested. In a class of their own these early AK radios are a great piece of radio history. $1,199.00. (0260772)

 

Atwater Kent 10C-4700

Atwater Kent 10C-4700

The iconic AK breadboards were among the first radios to be collected and preserved. This model 10C saw some restoration at some point in the past. The board was refinished and well done. It is missing some trim grommets. The wires that pass through the board to the detector are missing the brass eyelets that mount in the board. The grommet that the power cord passes through is missing. The wire on the coils show some fraying. The Bakelite is very good with just a 1/4" hairline at one tube socket in the detector which is hard to see. The model tag is there but missing the warranty tag. Overall this is a nice clean example that displays beautifully. All the O1A tubes test good. It has not been electrically serviced and is sold untested. $799.00. (0260773)

 

Audiotronics 222

Audiotronics 222

The company made audio equipment for school and based in North Hollywood CA. This radio probably dates from the mid 1950's. There was a black stripe on the left side that most likely covered what class or department it belonged to. I was able to cover it fairly well with a matching color. Otherwise over all it's in excellent original condition. The indicator light comes on and the set plays really well, so I'm offering it as found unrestored. 13"W x 7-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D. $99.00. (0260707)

 

Colonial 650 Tombstone (1934)

Colonial 650 Tombstone (1934)

The model 650 is a rare variation of the more common 653. It has the band and tone control switch on the rear of the chassis as shown. The labels are in amazing condition showing very little wear. I like the deep, mellow and brilliant markings for tone. the left knob in front of the set is a trimmer. It dates from about 1934 and is in original condition including knobs and grille cloth. The finish shows minor discoloration and wear, but still displays well. The set has been serviced including a new cloth covered cord. It plays well and receives on both AM and Shortwave. About 14-1/2"H x 11"W x 7"D. $449.00. (0260689)

 

Davison Haynes Aero

Davison Haynes Aero

The only identification is Aero on the escutcheon and the number 15997 on the label. This is an extremely rare radio and is the only example I'm aware of. There is little documentation about the company and it appears they were only in business from 1930 to 31. The chassis was assembled at Gilfillan Bros. Plant in L.A. The chassis is the same used in their model 92 and 93 consoles. The radio is in beautiful condition inside and out. The chassis is super clean with no corrosion. The set was serviced by the former owner and plays fine with strong reception. The cabinet has been refinished. The grille cloth is a replacement, but I believe the knobs are original to the set. There is no schematic for this set and so it is offered primarily for display and preservation. 16-1/2"H x 15"W x 9-1/2"D. $749.00. (0260733)

 

Detrola Tombstone (model unknown, 1933)

Zaney-Gill Tombstone Clock Radio w/Original Stand

Zaney-Gill Tombstone Clock Radio w/Original Stand

This Zaney-Gill clock radio dates from circa 1931 and I do not have the model number. In the twenty years I've owned this set, this is the only example I'm aware of. A very similar radio is listed in machine Age To Jet Age 2 on page 346 with the name McCormick. Noted differences include three knobs vs. two, escutcheons, differences in grille cutouts, clocks are different and the chassis would not be the same. There are only two minor issues with this radio. The dial is worn and there is some base veneer missing. The base of course does not show so I never bothered to repair it. This set is in excellent cosmetic condition. The grille cloth is the correct replacement, but the balance appears to be all original down to the power cord. The chassis has been serviced and plays well with strong reception. The clock works and keeps time. There are no chassis bolts and never were. The only thing holding in the chassis is the small wood block in the rear. It is cut so the chassis fits in and it is secured with a screw. Don't miss this opportunity to own this great piece of LA radio history ready for display and preservation. 42"H including the stand. $1,200.00. (0260691)
