Excellent, Working 1921 Aeriola Sr. Battery Radio With Good Wd-11 Tube For Sale

Excellent, Working 1921 Aeriola Sr. Battery Radio With Good Wd-11 Tube

Make sure to check out all of my sales after you've looked at this one. I'm listing an outstanding assortment of musical, electrical and mechanical antiques, and I suspect that there will be something of interest to almost everyone.Here's a 1921 Westinghouse Aeriola Sr. 1-tube battery radio. The set is original, it's working, it's in excellent condition, and it includes a good (ie, working) WD-11 Radiotron tube. Launched and marketed (briefly) by Westinghouse in 1921, the Aeriola Sr. went through several iterations over the course of its 2 1/2 year production history. You're looking at the very first version of the set, with a painted wood panel, silver-plated dials, a poplar cabinet and a lid card with no references on it to RCA, the company that would eventually take over its marketing and distribution and make the radio famous. As you can see in the photos, the condition of this example is excellent throughout. The painted wood panel is essentially perfect, with no flaking, no checking, no blotchy areas. The silver-plated dials are tarnished, but much less than you typically see on wood-paneled Aeriola sets. 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 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 and the original fuse-type grid leak cartridge still in place. The WD-11 Radiotron tube is good. It has been tested with the radio, and it still has strong emissions.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 ready to "plug and play," 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 and a working headset, 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.
