Motorola 6-T (1938)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Motorola 6-T (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

There are very, very few radios that are harder to come by than this 6-T. It's amazingly beautiful and has features that appear to be ahead of its time. When changing from one band to another, the actual dial mechanically changes to another separate corresponding dial. When introduced, this was a $50 radio and fairly pricey for a table set! An Art Deco influenced set where quality came first, what Motorola practiced for decades. The cabinet has been refinished using the very finest toning and finishing lacquers, producing a gorgeous luster. The set retains its original wooden knobs and has correct era correct replacement grille cloth. All the capacitors have been replaced with modern types, out of tolerance resistors replaced, its six tubes checked and replaced where needed, antenna lead installed, and a new fused polarized power cord installed, and it plays very nicely on both the AM and both shortwave bands through an 8-inch speaker. 21-1/2"W x 12"H x 10"D.
