Grunow 550 "Chromefront" (1934)
Grunow 550 "Chromefront" (1934)
Starting in 1928 in Chicago, Grigsby-Grunow produced the famous and high performing Majestic brand radios. They hired the brightest engineering talent available and became one of the most prolific radio and tube manufacturing companies of the time. In spite of the depression in 1929, Majestic radios were very successful and were even distributed in Europe and Africa. By 1931, Mr. Grunow started General Household Utilities Co. and produced radios under the Grunow name. The 550 is a five-tube, AM only, AC/DC radio. The chassis was completely rebuilt using modern capacitors. All of the resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. A new power cord and antenna lead were installed. An external audio cable is not available for this AC/DC set. Most of the finish is original (restored) except that Gary did redo the top. The original knobs and speaker are with the radio. A reproduction of the original cloth was installed. The chrome is in perfect condition, and the radio performs perfectly! This seldom seen early Grunow is ready to grace your collection... make it yours! 12"W x 8"H x 5-1/2"D.  $749.00. (1600389)
