Majestic 194 Mini-Cathedral (1933)

Majestic 194 Mini-Cathedral (1933)
Sold by Joe Millward on May 18, 2019
Listed price on date of sale - $499.00
Grigsby-Grunow Majestic became Majestic in 1933 upon the bankruptcy of Grigsby-Grunow. A year later Majestic went out of business. In 1933-34 they produced some angular cabinet designs with chrome fronts that just screamed "Art Deco." The "mini-cathedral" 194 was produced in this same time period, but was much more a Gothic design, but was taller than it was wide, giving it a different look from other Gothic cabinet designs, and was sold right along side the Art Deco radios. Low production numbers of Majestic radios from this time period contributed to their rarity today. The 194 is a four-tube, two-band (AM,SW) radio. Only four tubes, but with a 6F7 pentode acting as IF amplifier and first audio, so it performs like a five tube radio. We went through the radio, replacing all of the capacitors, checking and replacing resistors and tube where needed. A new volume switch, power chord and safety fuse were installed as well. Gary stripped the cabinet and refinished it with a satin finish, and it's really quite stunning! A period correct grille cloth was used. This unique and rare radio will be a gem in any collection. 14"H x 10'W x 7"D.
