1938 Detrola T 2 "Egyptian" Table Radio

1928 Detrola Model T2 Table Radio
This is one of the most deco of antique radios.  The "Egyptian" nickname refers to the faboulous winged escutcheon. It is an eight tube set, originally 3 bands, with one of the first electrical automatic tuning mechanisms. The set receives AM and Shortwave, and does require  an external antenna, which I provide.  The third band is silent today, unused.  The set was virtually disassembled and rebuilt, and works as new.  All of my sets come with a 90 day electrical warranty.

1937 Detrola 146 " the Suburban"

Another fairly obscure Detrola. Tried and true chassis, with 7 tubes plus the eye tube.  Detrola hit the ball out of the park on this  chassis set up. A big success for both Detrloa, and the several brands they sold this chassis combo to, to be re badged.   Great looking cabinet. made in very small numbers.  Good, solid performer,with 3 bands and a big 8 "speaker.
