1922 Aeriola Sr. Battery Radio With 2 Wd11 Tubes & Headset * Works Great For Sale

1922 Aeriola Sr. Battery Radio With 2 Wd11 Tubes & Headset * Works Great


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 gorgeous1922 Aeriola Sr. regenerative radio. The set is original, it's working, it's in excellent condition, and it includes a good bakelite clear glass WD-11 Radiotron tube, a beautiful brass base, tipped WD-11 display tube (non-working) and a good (ie, working) 1920's headset. This is the "sister" set of near mint Radiola Senior that I sold on last month. It came from the same high end collection, and it's been tested as recently as this past weekend.Launched by Westinghouse in 1921, the Aeriola Sr. underwent only a few changes over the course of its 2 1/2 year production history, the most significant of which came in the wake of RCA/Westinghouse's decision in 1922 to change the composition of the panel from painted wood to polished bakelite. The result was a radio whose appearance was a bit more refined than that of its predecessor and also more in keeping with the "look" RCA was attempting to project across its entire line of boxed radios and amplifiers. With the introduction of the less expensive (and self-amplified) Radiola III in 1924, the Aeriola Sr. and its nominal successor the Radiola Sr. were discontinued, although dealers were still selling the radios (which tuned better than the Radiola III) well into 1925. As you can see in the photos, the condition of this example is superb throughout. The panel is beautiful and undamaged, and the original lettering is crisp and clear everywhere. Plated parts are in near mint condition, and the nickel plated dial literally gleams. The binding posts, the panel screws, the screws securing the parts on the underside of the panel to the bakelite -- all of this hardware is still bright and clean. Inside, the chassis looks as you would expect given the condition of the exterior, which is to say almost like new, with straight, original wiring throughout and the original fuse-type grid cartridge still in place. The cabinet is in excellent condition, and the finish is original, with minor marks here and there consistent with the finish's age and authenticity. All of the cabinet hardware (hinges, latch assembly, screws) is in near mint condition, with no rust or corrosion. All four original feet remain intact on the underside of the base. Original green felt dots (buffers) are still in place in the upper corner of the lid. The original lid instruction sheet is still in place under the lid, but there's a tear out of the lower right corner, so I've tipped in a replica over the original. The replica is pictured in the photos. If desired, it can be removed in a matter of minutes.If you want to operate the set, you'll need a longwire outdoor antenna (ham radio type -- approximately 120 feet long and 20 feet off the ground), a good regulated DC power supply (I'd recommend and ARBEIII), and a good indoor ground connection. The radio comes with a good 01A tube and a working pair of 1920's headphones, so if you're familiar tuning principles of an early 20's regenerative radio, and you have the proper antenna erected, and the proper DC power supply, you'll be able to use it as soon as it arrives. 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.
