Truetone D-712 "Egyptian" (1938)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Truetone D-712 "Egyptian" (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

Here is one of the most sought after collectable radios on the planet. The Art Deco inspired "Egyptian" as it called, is truly an industrial work of functional art. Constructed of Walnut, Burled Walnut, Maple and Australian Laurel wood, this cabinet has been professionally restored and refinished. Correctly toned (not "Monotoned") and finished with a ultra smooth semi-gloss. Not the incorrect "Piano High-gloss" that is often seen. This Truetone D-712 has had its chassis meticulously refurbished both electrically and mechanically, even going so far as to take tube shields for a machine shop "finishing blast" for a gorgeous factory patina. With the aid of my rooftop longwire antenna (required) I am receiving many stations across the silky-smooth dial on both AM/Shortwave. Video available upon request. Radio features the original grille cloth, dial plastic and internal tags and paper labels. Chassis was polished as best I could with "SemiChrome" metal polish. Mechanical tuning is silky smooth, the quirky electrical tuning is untested and inoperative.
