Fully restored in authentic and playing condition, provided with the original Philips “cloud” radio cloth, station-tuning ornament with logo and back panel.

Brand: Philips
Type: Tube Radio
Condition: Very Good Plus

This beautiful Philips tube radio device type Super Inductance 836A (with built-in speaker) got such a favourable pricing in 1934, that a working man could also afford this device, according to Philips. This radio device was nicknamed “Labourer cabinet” in professional circles. The device cost back then: Hfl. 98.00 at the time and has Middle and Long Wave, sound control and connection for Record Player (with switch plug) and additional (high impedance) speaker on the back. The device is set to a mains voltage of 225 V - 50 Hz by means of a voltage terminal block. For good AM radio reception, a long wire antenna is recommended.
The device has signs of wear and aging, but these are not bothersome and the veneered cabinet has been touched up as best as possible. The right knob is missing a small piece (bottom). The internal high-voltage wiring has been replaced where needed for a safe cable and the connection cable with socket has been replaced because of a perished insulation for a safe, matching cord with nostalgic cloth winding. The tube layout is as follows: E455 - E462 - E499 - E443H(PP4101) and 1823(1805). The dimensions are 343 x 365 x 215 mm It weighs approx. 11 kilograms.
Because of the vulnerability, it is preferable to pick up the radio device in Amersfoort-NL. All shipping is properly packaged, and sent by registered and insured mail.
