This is the 1942 Marconi 5 tube + Tuning Tube radio and it is simply gorgeous. This model 201 Marconi radio is very rare and certainly a collectors "must have". This gorgeous radio is 13 long x 10 tall x 7 deep. The cabinet have a unique design and is in beautiful condition.
I recently refinished the cabinet and it appears to be a nice walnut color. The radio displays its nice colors and has plenty of beautiful wood grains throughout.
The top of the radio really catches the eye with notched in grooves down the center and sides. The big arched dial face is in excellent condition and the brass pointer works as it should. Additionally, this radio has the "Magic Tuning Eye" factory installed which indicate your signal strength as you are tuning for stations. The big large grill looks wonderful and has a new grill cloth.
The three knobs have been cleaned and resealed. There is a new dial cover, new dial lamp, new AC Power cord, and new Filter/Audio capacitors installed. The 5 tubes plus the Tuning Eye have been tested and the remaining components were checked & replaced if needed. This is a wonderful example of the Canadian Radio Industry waiting for you to display in your favorite place in the home or office. The radio plays and receives stations very well.The speaker is in excellent condition and has very good volume, tone, and clarity. There is an Antenna pigtail at the rear of the radio that will need to be stretched out in order to receive and perform properly. Performance will vary depending on your signal strength and location. Thank you very much for stopping in! Please take a look at my other radio's.
