Stewart-Warner R-1261 "York" (1934)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)

Stewart-Warner R-1261 "York" (1934)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

There are two kinds of nicknames for radios. A nickname that came from the designer, and those that came from collectors. There are several Stewart Warner models that have "factory" nicknames, such as the R-1281. But a "collector" nickname example is the Zenith Walton, named long after the radio was manufactured. The "York" is a seven-tube, four-band (AM,SWx3) radio. This set was top-of-the-line for Stewart-Warner in 1934 and a great performer utilizing an 8-inch speaker and an early "robot" dial. We replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. All of the resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. A safety fuse, new power cord, antenna lead and audio input were installed. Gary restored the original finish. Gary is one of the best in the business, and this radio exemplifies his talent! The original knobs, speaker and chassis are with the set. A reproduction grille cloth was added. This model is fairly scarce, and you won't find a better example anywhere! 19"H x 14"W x 11"D.
