Smokerette Radio item #1751
What a find - a Smokerette Radio Model SR600. It is by Porto Products Chicago IL and is from the same manufacturer that sold the Portobar radio. It is from 1947-48. This one is in beautiful condition with no cracks or chips to the massive bakelite case. The only thing missing is the original square ash try but I bought a vintage ash tray made of bakelite from the 1940s on eBay and will include (first picture is the radio I am selling with this ash tray, second picture is the same radio from the internet showing the correct ash tray). I am not sure if this ever came with pipes but there are 4 slots to hold your favorites. Includes two humidors for cigars and tobacco and a double humidor for cigarettes. The covers on all three compartments are intact but there are 1 or 2 two small stress cracks on the inside of the covers (no big deal but just wanted to make sure the description is complete). As for the radio itself, the chassis was restored and is playing fine (Stewart Warner actually made the chassis). I have two of these in my collection (a brown one and a white one) and always get wonderful comments from anyone who sees them. Grab this one for yourself. It will be boxed with plenty of bubblewrap to get to you safe. Buy it now and I will include shipping lower US 48 only.

Crosley 11-118U item #1748
Fresh out of an estate comes this 1951 Crosley Model 11-118U "Serenader" radio. It is in excellent condition throughout with just 3 small scratches on top that could be touched up (look at first picture closely and you can just make them out). The case does not have any cracks or chips. I powered the radio up and it plays fine. I was curious so I took out the chassis and it is clean and all original. Knobs, back, and label on bottom complete this beauty. Priced at 1/2 of other websites and to make it even better, free shipping!

Philo 37-610 Big Bullet item #1747
This is one of my favorite art deco radios. It is a 1937 Philco Model 37-610 aka "Big Bullet". The wood cabinet is in good condition for being 80 years old, but there are a few repairs needed. There is a small missing piece of veneer on the front as seen in the first picture. The lacquer finish on top is worn and will need some refinishing. The veneer along the front top edge needs gluing down, and there is a small crack in the veneer just before it starts the rounded portion of the cabinet (it can also be glued down and when sanded smooth should not be a problem). As you can see in the first picture the grill cloth is torn and the original Philco field coil speaker had some tears in this area. I was able to use rubber cement from the inside of the speaker and make the repairs and it is now fine. On the bottom of the cabinet is a factory cut out so you can see the underneath of the chassis. I noticed one electrolytic was disconnected so I removed the chassis and found all 3 were disconnected. I decided to replace them and to my amazement the radio played fine and sounded great. If this was my radio I would still replace the rest of the old capacitors, but this takes the big gamble out of buying an old tube radio and not knowing if it works. While I had the chassis out I noticed the plastic dial had 2 cracks and I was able to epoxy them tight. I think it looks fine but if this bothers you repro dials for this radio are available. Finally, the original knobs and escutcheon are good. I had one of these radios in my collection and sold it for $350. I had wanted to get another but do not have the time for any more projects so instead I am offering it for sale for $100 (I recently looked on ebay and cabinets alone for this radio go for $100). Please expect Fedex shipping to be around $35 East and $45 West of the Mississippi as this is a large radio and needs a big box with lots of packing. I am betting this radio will go quickly.

Emerson 540 item #1746
Great find at auction. This is an Emerson model 540/540A, introduced in early 1947, sometimes called the "Emersonette". It has a tiny cabinet housing an All-American-Five (AA5) AC/DC superhet chassis. It covers the standard broadcast band. The cases on these radios are very fragile and as a result relatively few have survived. This one is a survivor and in excellent condition with no damage. Everything appears to be original and untouched right down to the knobs and back. The power cord is missing the plug but I tried it anyway and I got hum along with a local station with garbled sound. That means a recapping needs to be done. Here is the offer - buy it as found for $95, or I will rebuild the chassis so it works for $125. Since it is so small I will include shipping in the price. I am not listing it as excellent only because the chassis needs repair. The Emerson 540 is highly collectible.
