This is a 6 tube superheterodyne Bakelite table radio that tunes just the broadcast band. It is built without a power transformer but due to tube advances, no resistance line cord or ballast tubes are required. Commercial radio production was stopped during WWII as the radio manufacturers built military equipment. This is one of the first post WWII commercial radios.. It has a beautiful wood-colored finish.
