Silvertone 1954 (1935)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)

Silvertone 1954 (1935)

One of the first radios I bought and restored was a Silvertone model 1954. During this time period, Colonial was manufacturing a lot of the Silvertone models and there were various cabinet makers used as well. These good looking, Art Deco tombstones were great performers and featured one of the first "airplane" motif dials. The 1954 is a six-tube, two-band (AM,SW) AC radio. We replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. We added a new power cord, safety fuse, antenna lead and an audio input cable for iPhones, Bluetooth etc. An interesting feature is the "airplane" dial turns from green to red when the radio is powered up. Gary stripped the walnut cabinet with his usual mastery, and after sanding and painting came out with a gorgeous catalyzed lacquer finish. The original wooden knobs, chassis, speaker and dial are with the set. Once again, this restored model 1954 is "collection ready" and performs well. 16-1/4"H x 11-3/4"W x 10"D.  $679.00. (1600491)
