Mirror-Tone 850 (1947)
(Plaskon tube table radio)

Mirror-Tone 850 (1947)

This is one of two Mirror-Tone compact ivory Plaskon radios being offered. Mirror-Tone was one of a few brands sold by John Meck Industries. This 850 is the more common model with miniature tubes and a rotating pointer dial. The ivory cabinet with its red knobs and labeling is cute as a button! The cabinet is clean, free of chips, and has a nice original shine. Knobs, dial cover, and back are all original. This was an inexpensive radio in its day, being a four-tube TRF design with a wire antenna. TRF sets don't have the selectivity of a superhet; on the other hand, the broad tuning offers superior audio bandwidth, so it sounds good! The chassis is exceptionally clean and has been fully recapped and aligned for like-new performance. A new polarized power cord has been installed with the power switch rewired to greatly improve the safety of this otherwise hot-chassis design. The original antenna wire is still there, ready to use. This radio is very compact and light, so shipping will be inexpensive. 8"W x 5-1/4"H x 4-3/4"D.  $195.00. (1310162)
