Beautiful, Working, Prewar Zenith Wood Tube Radio- 1 Year Operating Warranty For Sale
Beautiful, working, prewar Zenith wood tube radio. This is a model 6D-525 and was made for the 1941 model year- a year before the radio industry would cease production of civilian radios and begin their wartime manufacture of military radios and electronics. The late 1930's and early 1940's was a time that for many, the depression had eased a bitand many families were buying a smaller, 2nd radios for the home- a radio that was in addition to the larger floor console kept in the living room. This is one of those types of radios. A smart looking table set, that has a furniture quality wood and finish. The Mark Stein "Radiomania" series of value guides attributes the wood cabinet on this modelto the Ingraham clock company- a company that producedexquisitely designed and executedwood cabinets for Emerson and GE. A good majority of this cabinet has solid woods, not veneers (the grille and entire surround is solid American walnut). This set is early in the production schedule for this model, as evidenced by some subtle differences in the grille cloth, grille, and chassis details. The unit has it's original finish on the wood, which is quite nice as you can tell- very well taken care of and stored responsibly for many years. I prefer a fine original finish to a refinish (even a nice refinish- which is very hard to find) for a number of reasons, including the natural beauty of the aged tones and thegreater likelyhoodto maintain or growits resale value over a refinished set. Impeccibly clean, inside and out, it will pass the
white glove test- a final detail cleaning is accomplished with Q-tips, all the corners and pocketswere attended to- and the final result shows that off. Unit has
the original knobs, grille cloth,and cardboard back. Theclear dial lensis a professionally made, thermally formed, exact reproduction of the original- it isn't a cheap piece of flat plastic sheet.The radioplays loudly, clearly with
good tone, no hum. The radio has a good, safe, power cord.It measures 12 inches
long, 7 1/2 high,7 deep.
All radios sold have had preventative electrical
maintainence, so that they perform as well in the foreseeable future...as they
do when you first get them. I stand behind the components I've repaired, parts
and labor- for 6 months. After that- free labor for 6 months. Why would you
bother with someone who says they've "restored" the radio and then
tell you you are buying "as is"- and why would someone's warrantee be
worth anything if you can't find them again on ? The insides of my radios are
given the same careful attention as the outsides are.
Please give a look to a Beautiful, working, 1930's Zenith bakelite set that runs until July 28th, it is pictured in the final photo. That bakelite radio is its own sale and is not part of this lot/sale.
Very well packed Fed Ex insured ground shipping is $24 (this radio is heavy for its size)within the continental US (shipped at a loss, it costs much more for the packing supplies and the actual shipping). Shipping elsewhere, will be at exact postage.
