Grunow 650 (1934)
(wood tube tombstone radio w/SW)

Grunow 650 (1934)

In 1933, Grunow Corporation of Chicago merged with U.S. Radio and Television to form General Household Utilities Company. From 1933 on, they continued with the brand Grunow, coming out in 1936 with "Teledial Twelve" nicknamed the "Shirley Temple" as the child star was used in advertising. The model 650 is a six-tube, two-band (SB,SW) radio. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked, replacing all out-of-tolerance components. An audio input cable, safety fuse and new power cord were installed, along with a new antenna lead wire. The radio was aligned and plays strong across the dial with good sensitivity. Gary stripped the old finish off the cabinet. He refinished the American Walnut veneers using high quality toners and lacquer, ending up with a gorgeous "piano" lacquer finish. The original speaker, knobs, chassis and dial scale are present and we installed a period-correct grille cloth. This is a really nice example of a model 650 and is priced right, ready for your collection! 19-1/2"H x 14"W x 9-1/2"D.  $649.00. (1600535)
