Majestic 461 "Master Six" (1933)
(wood tube tombstone radio)

Majestic 461 "Master Six" (1933)

Grigsby-Grunow of Chicago, IL started to manufacture Majestic radios in 1927. As the depression hit, the company faltered. In 1933, and in an attempt to bolster sales and save the company, they produced a new line of stylish, Art Deco radios, the "Smart Sets." The attempt failed and the company declared bankruptcy later that year. The 461 is a six-tube, AM (police on the upper end of the band) radio. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. the resistors and tubes were replaced where necessary. We installed a safety fuse, new cloth-covered power cord with the original plug, audio input cable and a new antenna lead. The radio is a strong performer with good sensitivity and volume. Gary completely stripped the Walnut cabinet. The set has beautiful book-matched veneer on the front, and he ended up with a gorgeous "piano" lacquer finish. The radio has the original knobs, chassis and speaker. There aren't many of these sets around anymore, and very few have been offered on the Radio Attic. A unique radio for your collection! 17"H x 13"W x 8-1/2"D.  $599.00. (1600453)
