Near Mint, Working 1921 Rca Aeriola Sr. Radio W/good Tipped Wd11 Tube & Headset


Make sure to check out all of my sales after you've looked at this one. I've got another great group of listings running this week, and I suspect there will be something of interest to almost everyone.
Here's a 1921 Aeriola Sr. regenerative radio. The set is original, it's working, it's in near mint condition (including the original lid sheet), and it comes with its original (and still good) brass base, tipped WD-11 Radiotron tube and its original (and still working) pair of Brandes headphones.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 example I'm listing this week is the earliest version, with a painted panel, silver-plated dials, a poplar cabinet and a large brass base, tipped RCA Radiotron (later versions were sold with smaller bakelite base WD-11 tubes). As you can see in the photos, the condition of this radio is superb throughout. The panel is beautiful and undamaged, with perfect original paint that's still glossy and smooth to the touch. Silver plating on the dials has minimal tarnish, much less than you typically find on these early sets, whose dials are either black and illegible or completely re-plated. The binding posts, the panel screws, the screws securing the parts on the underside of the panel to the wood top -- 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 excellent condition, with no rust or corrosion. All four original feet remain intact on the underside of the base. The lid instruction sheet is original and it's one of the cleanest I've ever seen.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. As noted above, the radio comes with a good WD11 tube and a good pair of Brandes 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.
