Make sure to check out all of my sales after you've looked at this one. I'm listing an eclectic assortment of hard-to-find technological, musical and mechanical antiques, and I suspect there will be something of interest to almost everyone.
Here's a 1923 "Lawrence" broadcast receiver made by the Park Radio Corporation of Pittsburgh. Park was a tiny manufacturer that produced 1-tube and 2-tube radios under the Paraco brand name, but this model, which features a fixed crystal detector mounted to the panel, is the only Park crystal set I've ever seen. Condition is excellent throughout. The panel is pristine, and the tuning assembly inside the cabinet is entirely original and in excellent condition. Original Stuckeman Bros. variable condenser (also made in Pittsburgh). Cabinet finish is original, with only minor checking. Cabinet itself is in excellent condition, with no damage to the base or lid. All four original feet remain in place on the underside of the base. Original metal manufacturer's tag is still present on the lid. Small hardware exhibits tarnish and surface oxidation but is in good condition overall. The radio comes with a good Dixie headset. The radio -- somewhat large for a crystal receiver -- measures approximately 13" wide by 5" deep by 6" high. Shipping weight, properly packed, will be approximately 11 lb.That's about it. Iwill package the set carefully, and Ican assure you thatit willshow upat your doorstepin the samefine condition in which it leaves mine.
