Just bought this today along with another larger unit which I haven't had a chance to look at yet (will get pics posted soon).
This was sold by Montgomery Ward & Co. in the mid 1930s. It stands 35 inches tall, is 19 inches wide, and 10-3/4 inches deep. It appears to be all original parts. I'm not sure how long they sold this particular unit. I see some stamps on the inside for the 1950s I'm not sure if that's the manufacture date or maybe a last service date.
All the knobs appear to turn except the one on the right - an inside piece is chipped off so won't catch the metal rod to turn the knob. One wire is not connected properly so I didn't want to turn it on yet. The wood casing is in very good condition.
The left knob is on/off + volume; the middle knob is to tune the stations; the right knob is a shortwave switch.
