1838 Philco model 38-10
Table radio, Art Deco

This was the first radio of its kind in my collection, a beautiful wooden table radio with strong Deco design, 17" wide by 11" high. It works beautifully, although the lightbulb behind the dial needs replacing. I like sitting next to this one, listening to old-time radio dramas on KNX-AM here in Los Angeles.

It never ceases to amaze me how something made the same year my mother was born could still be in such great shape and working so well.  (Um, sorry for giving your age away, Mom.)  Purchased from Chris Schulte of Amherst, New York. Image is 107K.
