Rca-westinghouse Radiola-rs 1923-receicer Amplifier-tube Radio (areola Sr):
This WORKING RADIO is a Two Tube Set called a RADIOLA RS-TYPE RS
STYLE 358101—SERIAL # 136271. It was manufactured by Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Co. under Licensing to RCA.
Was introduced in May 1923 by Radio Corporation of America (R.C.A.)to replace the 1922 two box set consisting of Radiola Senior (Detector) and the Radiola AC (Two Stage Amplifier).
The Radiola-RS had both the Detector and a one-stage amplifier in one box. It was an attempt to bring the price of the two box set totaling $138.00 plus tubes, down to $85.00 plus tubes for
the Radiola-RS Single box set. It was marketed for a short time but did not sell well. Their numbers sold were Few ( only 4,613 were made) when compared to the numbers of the two box sets.
The Radiola RS gave up its market to the Newly Designed Radiola lll that had a far better marketing success.
Few of these Radiola RS are found today especially in Working Condition and This Cosmetic Condition. Radio is being sold as it was originally sold With Out the WD-ll Tubes it uses.
TUBES IN PICTURES WERE FOR DISPLAY ONLY.
The winning buyer may request working WD-ll tubes if desired at conclusion of sale for separate additional cost.
CONDITION: It is COMPLETE and has been TESTED and is in ELECTRONICALLY WORKING ORDER.
The FACEPLATE is COMPLETE with NO CHIPS or CRACKS, ALL KNOBS & POINTERS are CORRECT and the White Lettering, Numbers and Scales are untouched.
ALL NICKLED PARTS on deck plate and Mahogany Box are ORIGINAL and Rate a 97+% condition except for the tuning pointer which rates an 80% condition.
The MAHOGANY BOX has NO CRACKS or SEPERATING JOINTS and has the ORIGINAL DEEP MAHOGANY FINISH. The top of the lid does show micro alligatoring of clear coat
but is hard to pick up in the pictures and appears to be U.V. induced.
Over all, this RARE SET in THIS CONDITION, would make a nice addition to any MEASURES: 8 ½”W X 7 ¼” D X 7 ¼” H

Winning buyer will pay actual shipping, insurance and packing costs. I pack Very Well. Due to the age of this piece I will be selling it with no warranty or guarantee or refunds of any kind, all sales are final.
Also on all used/antique radios they may be working when I have them but during shipping anything can happen that might cause them not to work once they arrive at your address.
Again, I pack my items very well with plenty of space between the bubble wrapped item, peanuts and the side of the box, for safe arrival, and also ship in the most cost effective means.
Some of the items require double boxing for damage free shipping. This results in a larger box which adds a little more postage, but assures that your item will arrive undamaged. I charge a small fee
to cover the cost of bubble wrap, new boxes (when needed) and peanuts, etc.Have not lost one yet!
