Motorola 5J2U "Jewel Box" Portable (1951)
Sold by Jeffrey Buda on March 11, 2019
Listed price on date of sale - $119.00
Posted is a seldom seen Motorola portable with a beautiful swirled Jade green, Chinese influenced grille. Portables of this design always have cracks in the cabinet in and around the hinge area. However there are none to found on this set anywhere. Replaced Selenium rectifier with heavy duty modern diode and paper caps. Gave radio a tune up on the IF's and now has loads of sensitivity and room filling sound. Beautiful matching swirled Jade green knobs.
