DeForest Crosley 506A (1933)

I believe the cabinet is made of mahogany, with either butt burl of some exotic type of veneer on the front. Note the exquisite hand laid inlay in a diamond pattern further enhancing the front.

You are looking at a very early and extremely scarce early cathedral radio. The five-tube chassis plays on Broadcast only on an earlier type of circuit call a "TRF." I had my cabinet pro do the refinish and he discovered the inky super dark finish was covering Rosewood. At that point, I gave him artistic license to highlight the stunning wood. He choose a super high gloss lacquer hand rub finish to accentuate the gorgeous wood. Please excuse the photos as with the finish being so glossy, there is a bit of reflection and bounce from the flash.

Zenith 6-S-222 (1936)

Nobody made better radios in the mid to late 1930's than Zenith Radio. The set before you is a perfect example of the earned reputation. The radio is a solid six-tube super-het chassis playing on both AM and Shortwave bands. The oversized 6-1/2 inch "black dial" which lights at night with a pair of lamps only furthered their fame. The radio is has been beautifully and in very nice finish condition. I made one small repair to the top right side, so be sure to inspect the photo #3 to see it. The radio sounds great with a full range speaker radiating the sound out of the top. The speaker cloth also original and very clean. Note the classic and original with iconic "Z" wood knobs. This radio is a standout. My professional tech has done a perfect repair and has the radio to a "like new" condition. Since these are solid players with the speaker spreading the sound from the top of the cabinet, he added a mini-jack at no additional cost. This will allow you an unlimited source of content. You will be amazed at the sound quality. Bluetooth is available for $25. 14"W x 11-1/2"H x 11"D. $795.00. (0961727)

 

Zenith 6-S-229 Tombstone (1936)

Zenith 6-S-229 Tombstone (1936)

You are looking at one of the iconic tombstones that made Zenith famous. The brightly lit 6-inch dial was the source of the "black dial" fame with fly wheel tuning. The radio is a five-tube super-het which receives both AM and Shortwave. The cabinet condition is original and showing a small measure amount of wear for the 85 years since it left the factory. I did a bit of touch up to the top due to a watermark. The cabinet is in otherwise quite nice and factory original condition. The speaker cloth is an accurate replacement and the radio is complete with the iconic wood "Z" knobs, all original. The radio is a tremendous player with great selectivity and sound quality. My tech has done a complete repair with all of the aged parts which have failed being replaced and those that might be prone to future failure. He added a mini-jack to allow you an unlimited choice of content along with a fresh power cord and plug for your safe operation. These radios are a collector favorite, which good reason: they are terrific radios. Bluetooth is available for $25! 18"H x 13-1/2"W x 10-1/2"D. $795.00. (0961730)

 

Zenith 7-D-216 "Cube" (1938)

Zenith 7-D-216 "Cube" (1938)

This is a modestly sized famous Zenith Radio black dial. Within the modest size and price, lays a terrific seven-tube, super-het chassis. These highly reliable radios offered fine service and excellent sound quality from a 6-inch speaker. These models play on both AM and Shortwave. The radio was refinished by a previous collector and the work is accurate and excellent with a high luster. The photos show the expertise and the radio retains all other factory installed parts including the wood knobs with the iconic "Z" logo. My triple licensed tech has given the radio a terrific update in his professional repairs and the set is a "hot" receiver. He added a mini-jack for our connection to any modern device or Bluetooth receiver. This will allow you an unlimited choice of content which will allow you to use this with your iPhone, smart phone, iPods, or record player. Bluetooth is available for $25 additional! 12"W x 10-1/2"H x 10-1/2"D. $895.00. (0961721)
