Silvertone 57D 1705 (1933)

Silvertone 57D 1705 (1933)
NEW!Collectors speculate this radio celebrated the Empire State Building (notice the grille bar design) and was a smaller companion to the Chicago World's Fair Century of Progress radio. In my opinion this radio signifies the unique style and elegance only found in Depression Era radios. The cabinet on this fairly rare radio is in stunning original condition. The gorgeous grille cloth is intact along with the impossible to find original Silvertone knobs and wooden backing. Even remnants of a 1933 National Recovery Act sticker can be seen on the back of this set! A prior owner performed an electronic restoration, including a new power cord for safety. It's a good player on AM but not a great performer since it's an early Superhet. I was unable to tune much on the Shortwave band but that's not surprising for such a small set. The diminutive dial lens is bit distorted from natural aging (see photo). Despite its small size, there's a lot of heft to this set. This radio weighs 19 pounds; 10"H x 13-1/2"W x 7-1/4"D.  $349.00.
