1937 OR 1938
BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE RADIO
Recently Fixed; a few expensive tubes were recently replaced.
Works Fine; I listen to the Los Angeles Dodgers and Angels Baseball games on this radio just like they did in the old days.
The lights and power cord have been retro fitted due to the original electrical chords being old, dangerous and with ware.
Exterior has normal scuffs at usual places and the top of the radio lid towards the back there is a small chip at the back edge (shown on picture #7)
Overall exterior condition is good and ready to be displayed at your home.
This is definitely a conversation piece.
Cloth covering the speaker has been replaced and match to accurate era cloth.
These Philco Radiobar Radios were made in Los Angeles CA
The concept of the Radiobar came from the Prohibition Era.
This type of radio at the time is the type of radio you would expect to see in the office of a sophisticated gangster.
You can see an example of this radio in action in the movie films "Angels With Dirty Faces" & "Gold Diggers"
Bar has concealed ice buckets and concealed compartments.
I don't have the key for the side door use to look up the expensive liquor.; lock can be changed or a key can be remade by locksmith.
Glassware in bar is original
I am missing the Brandy Decanter, 1 shot glass and 2 high ball glasses. You can search for the missing glassware to complete or purchase similar glassware.
This Philco Radiobar is very expensive even when it is not in working condition. Similar Radiobars have sold close to 2k in non working/poor condition.
Local Pick up due to size and weight of Radiobar Console
We will test to assure it works!
