Spirit of St. Louis Radio

You are bidding on a wonderful, vintage-style Spirit of St. Louis Wireless Radio.

The radio was made a few years ago for the S.O.S.L. Collection Collector Series, and I believe it was sold in either The Sharper Image stores, Hammacher Schlemmer catalog, or maybe both. The current owner thinks he got it at Sharper Image.

The name plates say:

Spirit of St. Louis Wireless Radio 2 Valve Amplification 360 Swivel Reception New York - Paris 2 Valve Radio S.O.S.L. Wireless NX 211 Mini Watt PF Patent Pending PH780 Registered Design S.O.S.L. Trademark Spirit of St. Louis Wireless Radio Made For S.O.S.L. Collection Serial No. 95.27291268 1 Control Certificate MY 27 New York - Paris

The unit is made to look like a vintage vacuum tube AM radio, but has an AM/FM tuner and Cassette player slot on the side!

The radio has 2 light-up tubes at the top along with a retro antenna. T is a power switch, and a separate on/off switch for the lights. It also features:

Radio/Tape Source Selector Switch AM/FM Band Selector Switch Volume Knob Tone Knob Center Tuning Front Cassette Storage Drawer Light-up "Vacuum Tube" Indicators

The radio was briefly used, but is in excellent overall condition. It works very well, although the right vacuum tube light needs to be replaced. The wood has light wear and no damage. T are some scuffs, minor metal wear, and needs to be cleaned of dust.

This gorgeous radio make a wonderful and functional display piece.
