Philco 81 Cathedral (1933)

Philco 81 Cathedral (1933)
Sold by Mike Boessen on May 15, 2019
Listed price on date of sale - $225.00
By 1933, the Depression era money crunch brought about a bevy of affordable little four-tube mini cathedral radios. This really cute little model 81 was Philco's entry into that market. This is one of the nicer examples of the model 81 you are ever going to see. The cabinet was in very nice condition and I completely refinished it with 14 coats of nitrocellulose lacquer. I think the finish is nothing short of spectacular. There are a couple of tiny specks in the otherwise near-perfect finish. The knobs are original, but two of them had to be repaired. Original dial. New speaker cloth. Fully recapped, resistors as necessary, and a full alignment. I seriously doubt you will ever see a nicer Philco model 81.
