Antique 1930's Art Deco Apex Tube Radio Made in Chicago
Beautiful radio just acquired out of a private estate, we are able to offer this very fancy ~ US APEX SCREEN GRID RADIO made by UNITED STATES RADIO & TELEVISION CORP. This is a very unusual, fancy high-end model! I would imagine that this would have been a pretty expensive model to purchase when it was new, and not all that many were sold. It is quite large measuring 19 1/2 inches tall by 16 inches wide by 11 deep. It is also quite heavy weighing 37 pounds. It has a very nice look and would certainly stand out in any Vintage radio collection. It has been tucked away in the estate for quite some time. We did not do a thing to it and left it just the way it was when discovered in the estate. The overall condition is quite good for the age - (see pictures). The wood cabinet is absolutely beautiful, and it really displays well. The radio does work and has strong reception on most of our local stations. Pickup and our antique store in Chicago 60618 is highly recommended! Please look over the pictures and feel free to ask questions.
