Wonderful 1930s Ecophone Cathedral Style Radio Model S5, Early 1930s
Item Details
Description
Wonderful 1930s Ecophone Cathedral Style Radio Model S5, Early 1930s. 'Echophone' wood cased cathedral radio model S5. This radio is very popular and collected for its shape and the elaborate grill that is made from repwood. This material was used mostly for decorative trim, speaker grill work, and is a composite of wood sawdust and glue.

This Echophone radio's wood cabinet and repwood grille work are in superior condition and again, immensely appealing. The original tubes and original plug are intact and inside cabinet. The speaker fabric is original but at some point in this radio's life, the fabric was painted in a complimentary tan. That stiffened the fabric and has made it a bit susceptible to cracking when punctured. Also at least two of the buttons have been replaced.

In spite of these issues, the radio still displays beautifully. 17 x 14 x 7" and weighs about 20 pounds.
Estimated Value $100 - 300.
