  • 1936 Stromberg-Carlson Console Radio 130-M

  • $150
Submitted for your consideration is an UNTESTED 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. Cabinet bears some light scratches, which can likely be oiled/buffed. Nothing major. No holes in Grill Cloth.

One of the front feet is loose, but all there, and not a problem until console is moved. Either needs glue or a nail; whatever would secure it. Again, overall condition is VG to EX; 'not too shabby', in other words.

The only real downside to the condition is the cord, which has its plug attached, but is severely cracked due to dry-rot. It's so bad, I wouldn't dare plug it in until the cord is replaced - preferably with a 3-prong ground. Thus, this radio is UNTESTED.

The 130-M model employs a P-26246 8-tube chassis, and a P-26170 loudspeaker.

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

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

CABINET DIMENSIONS - 41 x 24 x 12

This console radio weighs about 60 lbs. I'm no spring chicken, but can lift it without too much trouble. Anything heavy would render me prone, buzzing for the Visiting Nurses ~ "I've fallen under a console radio, and I can't get up!".

These old radio consoles are hard to find in such good condition. Very similar Stromberg-Carlson model just sold for well over $600.00, and it was also UNTESTED. Mine is priced to sell.

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