|It never ceases to amaze how many different models of radios were manufactured by U.S. companies, and Silvertone was no exception. Seeing this model, the first thing that comes to mind is this large table radio could have been Silvertone's answer to the popular "Walton" model by Zenith, and to the many large tombstone radios that were offered for sale in 1938. This eight-tube, four-band radio (SB, 2xSW and police) with push button electric tuning. Each button is assigned a frequency range that can be set by the user. The chassis was restored earlier and was done well, boasting good sensitivity across the dial, with an active tuning-eye tube. Gary did a magnificent refinish making this one large, gorgeous radio! I reused the original grille cloth as it just fits this radio design. Check out the intricate dial, with a mechanical pointer identifying the band being used. The Tenite escutcheons for these radios are impossible to find, and have a tendency to shrink and break. This one shows some repair, which was done quite well. This large, heavy radio will be shipped via Greyhound to a depot near you. Please add $150 for packing and shipping. 22"W x 15"H x 11-1/2"D.|
