Zenith 4-B-131 Battery Tombstone (1936)


Zenith 4-B-131 Battery Tombstone (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
When you think of farm radios, you think small, flimsy cabinets, little tinny speakers and big, expensive throw away batteries. Zenith decided to lay that image to rest when they designed this gorgeous, full-sized, tombstone style 4B131. Nothing about this says Farm radio. The cabinet is stylish and elegant. It has a large 6-inch, perfect speaker, a well-designed chassis with a tone control that actually works! Unlike your average farm radio the sound is outstanding! On par with any similar AC set I have ever heard. They designed it with a vibrator like a car radio so it can run off a standard 6V car battery. You could even take it to the beach! The finish is slick and gorgeous, with a few minor dings from 80+ years of living. Fully restored chassis. New vibrator, and a full set of high testing tubes. When you look at this, don't think Farm radio. This is way better. For an extra $30 I will provide an AC supply that is nearly noiseless. 13"H x 10-1/2"W x 7-1/2"D.
