Arvin 417 "Rhythm Baby" (1936)
(wood tube tombstone radio)

Arvin 417 "Rhythm Baby" (1936)

Arvin was based in Columbus, Indiana and was the radio brand name manufactured by Noblitt-Sparks. There were four companies with the first starting on 1919 as Indianapolis Air Pump, to car radios in 1933 to home radios in 1935 as Noblitt-Sparks and Arvin. They created "families" of radios, starting with the "Rhythm Series" in 1936 and the "Phantom Series" in 1937. Many of these radios are highly collectable, with the "Rhythm King" being one of the hardest radios to find. There were several "Rhythm" series radios...The King, Queen, Master, Junior, Maid, Bell and Baby, which we have here. The 417 is a four-tube, two-band (AM,police) radio. The capacitors have all been replaced. We checked resistors and tubes and replaced where needed. A safety fuse and polarized power cord were installed. The radio plays well using about 10 feet of antenna, which we have provided. Gary stripped the walnut cabinet and came out with a "piano" lacquer finish. The knobs, speaker and chassis are original. This rare radio is gorgeous and a wonderful addition to anyone's collection! 12"H x 9"W x 7"D.  $599.00. (1600455)
