Philco 90 (late -- 1932)
(wood tube cathedral radio)

Philco 90 (late -- 1932)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

The Philco 90 is perhaps everyone's favorite cathedral radio. The classic cabinet was designed for Philco by Edward Combs. Although we would consider it a big radio, in their day cathedrals embodied a new trend toward smaller and less expensive radios. This model 90 is the far less common late model with a push-pull pair of 47 output tubes and a number of other circuit improvements over the earlier models. The cabinet is in very nice condition, either with its original finish, or possibly refinished by a real expert many years ago. Knobs and grille cloth are original. The nine-tube chassis is unusually clean. Even the original power cord and plug are in great shape and still safe to use. The chassis has been fully restored with new capacitors throughout, a strong set of tubes, and a meticulous alignment to get it performing like new. Sensitivity is good, and the audio output is prodigious with good sound quality. This quintessential cathedral belongs in every collection. 18-3/4"H x 17-1/4"W x 12"D.
