I Found this at a yard sale and i couldn't leave it there didnt even know what brand it was tell yesterday or that people collected them I just had the most uncontrollable urge to buy it and restore it...... even though i know nothing of radio's new or old or electronics I paid $30 for it it was worth it to me not sure how I'm gonna do it
but i like it And hope to fix it and keep it as decor i dont much about its history other than its probley around 1923-1925 is my guess
i found this site trying to figure out what i need to do to find the right tubes i have all sorts of neat antiques to share so I think I will like this site and you guys may get a kick out of my antique collection as well !
i love stuff like original W.M RODGERS silver plate not the oneida stuff they took over everything good in the 1880's i think
i collect all forms of apothecary , tonic , root bitters prohibition era decanters bottles
along with furniture, swords , books that pre-date 1900
japan antiques, I DONT THINK I WILL EVER HAVE ROOM FOR ALL MY ANTIQUE LOVES :)

I'm a native american artifact dealer & And proud member & seller of the AACA Authentic Artifact collectors Association (not the car club im to poor for that }
and antique fanatic I love anything that has age but artifacts are my Main study my Mother was a picker so were called now she raised me alone by selling antiques her and my Aunt would send my 4 year old rear
to knock on the doors to see if something was for sale kinda funny
I didn't realize how much of all that i learned in tell she passed
Me and Fiancee watch antique road show and we were both amazed at how accurate i can appraise stuff with in the range to profit no joke 95% accurate and i dont know how i know it
thanks Mom <3
SO This makes me one of the weirdest artifact dealer's and antique lover as I am 30 years old tribal tattoo sleeve and eyebrow piercing and i look like I'm about 20 so I get some funny looks at auctions :) they are thinking did that weird kid just outbid me on that 1860's copy of Shakespeare ? or my favorite was the looks i got when i bid against them on antique costume jewelry lol
well i did MOST know me now & how friendly and how honest I am
I WILL UPLOAD SOME OTHER STUFF SOON WITH LESS TALK ABOUT ME AND MORE ABOUT THE ANTIQUES
Any info on restoration of this radio would be great ! and if i got a good deal at $30-$35 i think it was
