Atwater Kent 80 (1931)
(wood tube cathedral radio)

Atwater Kent 80 (1931)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

We have written several times about Atwater Kent radios. They were one of the highest quality radios produced between 1921 and 1936. Arthur Kent chose to cease production rather than produce the cheaper five-tube radios his competitors were selling. It was ironic that his strongest competitor (Philco) bought his factory and started producing refrigerators. The model 80 is a gorgeous cathedral, designed by Charles S. Bradley, who also designed the models 82 and 84. The graceful Gothic-style influence with an rounded arch and multiple veneers is unsurpassed! The model 80 is a six-tube, AM only radio. We replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. We installed a new power cord, audio cable and a safety fuse. The knob in the back is an antenna trimmer. The cabinet has two kinds of Walnut and is trimmed with Zebrawood. The cabinet is beautifully restored and finished with a semi-gloss lacquer. The original knobs, chassis and speaker are present with a reproduction grille cloth. I can safely say this radio is "better than new" and is one great performer! 19"H x 16"W x 10"D.
