1921 Aeriola Jr. Crystal Radio W/original Perikon Detector * Excellent Condition For Sale


Make sure to check out all of my sales after you've looked at this one. I'm listing a pretty amazing assortment of mechanical, musical and technological antiques this week, and I suspect there will be something of interest to almost everyone.Here's a 1921 Westinghouse Aeriola Jr. crystal radio. The set is original throughout, including the early Perikon detector. Condition of this example is excellent throughout. The painted wood panel is clean, with no blotchy areas and no touch-ups anywhere. The silver-plated dial is probably the best I've ever seen on an Aeriola Jr.. Some very light tarnish, but about as close as you can come to near mint for this receiver. Nickel-plated parts are in excellent condition, and all of the nickel plated binding post nuts are present. All of the cabinet hardware retains its original coat of yellow shellac, with only minimal tarnish and oxidation evident.Inside, the chassis is close to mint, with brightly-colored sheathing on all of the wires, secure solder connections everywhere, straight, original wiring throughout.The early poplar cabinet is in excellent condition, with no damage, no distress, no checking, no extra holes. Finish is original and still satiny smooth, and the original Westinghouse decal is still affixed to the underside of the base. The instruction sheet under the lid has some protective acetate taped to the sides, but it's complete and legible throughout.The radio includes spare Perikon elements in a spare catwhisker. That's about it. I will pack everything carefully and properly, and Ican assure you that it willshow upat your doorstepin the samefine condition in whichits leaves mine. I have been shipping antique phonographs and radios for years, and if you check my response, you'll see that I know how to do it correctly.
