• 1936 Stromberg-Carlson Console Radio 130-M

  • $150
Submitted for your consideration is a 1936 Stromberg-Carlson console radio, model 130-M. Design is low-boy, in Art Deco style, made from mahogany wood and veneer. Condition of the Cabinet is about VG-EX, which is somewhat unusual for an 80-year-old console radio. The cabinet manifests a few scratches, which can likely be oiled/buffed. Nothing serious. One of the front feet is loose, but remains fully intact. It either needs glue, or a nail, or whatever would secure it. Is only a problem upon moving the console. The only real downside to the condition is the cord, which is severely cracked due to dry-rot. Thus, this radio is UNTESTED.

It comes with an octagonal 3-Band "Triple Range" Tuner;

1) Broadcast ~ AM
2) Police
3) Short Wave

This 130-M model employs a P-26246 chassis (8-tube), and one P-26170 Loudspeaker; both of which appear to be fully present & intact.

DIMENSIONS - 41 x 24 x 12

Would guess this console radio weighs about 60 lbs. I'm no spring chicken, but can lift it with relative ease. Anything heavier than 60 lbs would render me prone, buzzing for the Visiting Nurses.

These old console radios are relatively hard to find in decent condition. A very similar Stromberg-Carlson model just sold for $665.00, and it was also UNTESTED. Mine is priced for a quick sale.

Price is FIRM @ $150.00 - Cash Only. Buyer to pick up in Concord NH.
