R.S. Shelly "Peter Pan" (1935?)

R.S. Shelly "Peter Pan" (1935?)
The Peter Pan saga starts with the Bell brothers forming Jackson-Bell in 1926, and the company closed in 1935. R.S. Shelly acquired many of the chassis and parts that remained and in 1935 formed the Peter Pan Company in Los Angeles. He manufactured a lot of Peter Pan radios, several that can be identified by the Pied Piper on the dial, but there are no model numbers, schematics or identification documents to be found. This five-tube, two-band (SB,SW) set plays great! Blake replaced all of the capacitors, checked tubes and resistors and replaced where needed. The dial was reproduced by Blake, but the knobs, on-off switch and speaker are original. Gary stripped and refinished the cabinet, which is just gorgeous! I will admit that I came to the conclusion this was a Shelly Peter Pan after talking with Jim Ryan, who studied and wrote an article about them in the SCORS Gazette of Los Angeles Radio Club. 14"W x 9"H x 7"D.  $399.00. (1600248)
