Grunow 588 "Teledial" (1938)
Sold by Joe Millward on May 18, 2019
Listed price on date of sale - $399.00
By 1932, Grigsby-Grunow went bankrupt and became two companies: General Household Utilities, which sold radios under the Grunow name, and Majestic Radio and Television, selling radios under the Majestic name. Their "teledial" radios came along a few years later. They offered them on table radios and consoles. Their top-of-the-line console in 1938, model 1291, was a twelve-tube console advertised using the very popular child-star Shirley Temple. It had a very functional teledial. The 588 is a five-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) radio and also sports an easy-to-use teledial. It produces a lot of audio through its 8-inch speaker. We replaced all of capacitors, checked all resistors and tubes, replacing where needed. We added a safety fuse and installed a cable for listening to the device of your choice. Gary stripped the cabinet, restoring it using top quality toners and lacquer. The walnut veneer on this radio is gorgeous. The wrap-around grille is accentuated with a center slat covered with that beautiful walnut. This great-looking, great playing radio would grace anyone's collection! 14"W x 9"H x 8"D.
