      Well, I could not find the model name or number, but I found some pictures of this cabinet and it was really a pretty and unusual one. Too bad your is missing the speaker grill. https://www.icollector.com/Crosley-Floor-Model-Highly-Decorated-Metal-Tube-Radio_i21122502

      Here, I found the model! Now I want one! Crosley model 609 “Gemchest” https://www.google.com/search?q=Crosley+model+609+%E2%80%9CGemchest%E2%80%9D&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwix55mGuLzpAhU6HLkGHeKuAl4Q2-cCegQIABAA&oq=Crosley+model+609+%E2%80%9CGemchest%E2%80%9D&gs_lcp=CgNpbWcQA1DRVVi5YGCTZmgBcAB4AIABaIgBaJIBAzAuMZgBAKABAaoBC2d3cy13aXotaW1n&sclient=img&ei=nPzBXrGpDLq45OUP4t2K8AU&bih=663&biw=1366

      As far as I could learn, it is a rare model from the 1920s. Nice find. I guess you could have the speaker grill reproduced and the paint restored. Your's seem to be the red "Mandarin Red" version. The paint used in this cabinet seems to be what was called "crackle paint" and it contains lead, so be really cautious if you intend to sand or sand blast it.

      I would not remove the crackle or wrinkle paint, I would wash it very well, apply a rust converter on the parts that are oxidized and repaint it in one of the original colors used in this model, to keep the wrinkled effect.

      I paid $40 I don't know if that was a good deal or not now I'll be on the lookout for the speaker grill

      I actually just found the advertisement ! Now I feel like I need to find a forever home for with someone who can bring it back to it's original glory on the inside !!

      I didn't know this model and I am vary happy your post made me find it. I am serious, I really want one of these ans if I am lucky enough I will find one :) Nice to know you will try to restore it. The grill wont be easy to find, but it can be easily reproduced by a CNC shop. The radio itself would also be easy to adapt, as well as the speaker. Again, what a nice find!
