Vintage Collectors Art Deco Radios | 1920 – 1945

Ekco Black 1940s Tube Radio
Ekco Black 1940s Tube Radio

The Art Deco era brought new designs and materials to radio manufacturing, notably molded resins like bakelite, plaskon, catalin, and beetle (although some really cool deco radios were made of wood). These resins were dyed and colored, sometimes with swirls or marbled patterns. Speaker grilles on Deco style radios were slotted, round, square, or tombstone shaped, but many were also designed with aesthetics in mind, and overlaid with patterns and designs. The big manufacturers of this era were Emerson, Philco, Zenith, Fada, and General Electric. To collectors of Art Deco radios, aesthetics and condition are everything. Many resin cases faded or discolored over time, so truly beautiful, original Art Deco style radios are quite rare.

Butler Brothers Collectors Radios

Sky Rover Brand
Sky Rover Brand

The Sky-Rover brand was sold by Butler Brothers, which opened in 1887 as a wholesale distributor to discount stores around the country. In 1927, they organized the Ben Franklin dime store chain with most of their old customers as franchisees. (One franchisee named Sam Walton owned a couple of Ben Franklin stores in NW Arkansas. In the early 1950s, he argued that they should switch from dime stores to discount department stores. When they refused, he opened a little store called Wal-Mart. The Ben Franklin chain was disolved a few years later.) It’s hard to find literature about Sky Rover radios because there really was no literature. Ben Franklin tried to cut costs at every opportunity. (Brochures cost money.) Franchisees received lists of items and would order what they thought they could sell. Most Sky Rovers are remainders of discontinued models from radio companies in the Chicago area where Butler Bros. was located. (Erla, Belmont, Warwick, etc.)

BRAUN Design Collection | app. 1000 pcs for Sale

The BRAUN design collection consists of approx. 1000 different pieces, mainly from the years between 1955 and 1985. It is probably one of the most complete private BRAUN design collections of this period.

The collection shows how Dieter Rams und the BRAUN Design Department, starting from 1955, managed to give technology a clear shape (form follows function), wrapping it in modern materials. The domestic appliances in particular reveal the impact of “BRAUN Design” on other designers and their product engineering. The collection is either suited for a private collector or a design or technical museum. The innovative aspect becomes evident especially by comparing it with the technical products of other manufacturers of the same time period. Dieter Rams can be regarded as one of the best and most influential designers of the 20th century.

Part of the Braun Collection
Part of the Braun Collection

About the BRAUN Design Collection

The collection was created between 1979 and 1981 during my studies of architecture. In 1991 it was joined with a second collection in order to choose the best among 200 double items. Since 2010 the collection has been further extended. Most of the pieces are in a good or very good state even though the function of the devices has not been tested as most of them have been standing idle for more than 30 years.

Braun Collection Catalog shows only part of the collection as it was issued about 20 years ago. However, the list of items and the pictures of the storage facilities are up to date. The collection is completed by numerous brochures, manuals, posters, books, spare parts and so on. There are also some devices from the years before 1955, just to show that at that time they did not differ a lot from the products of other manufacturers.

Minimum asking price for the complete collection 350.000,– Euro

Harman/Kardon Collectors Radios

Dr. Sidney Harman circa 1955
Dr. Sidney Harman circa 1955

Harman/Kardon is a division of Harman International Industries and manufactures home and car audio equipment. Founded in 1953 by Dr. Sidney Harman and Bernard Kardon – two men with a deep interest in music and the arts – the company helped create the high-fidelity audio industry. Before Harman and Kardon was formed, Sidney Harman was the general manager of David Bogen Company, a leading manufacturer of public address systems at the time, while Bernard Kardon was the chief engineer for the same company. By the 1950’s due to management changes at Bogen, both men resigned and with $5000 investment from each, formed Harman Kardon Company in 1953.

Soundsticks III Wireless | By HARMAN KARDON
Soundsticks III | HARMAN KARDON

In the 1950’s Harman Kardon designed some of the first high fidelity audio products, that help fuel the Hi Fi business (see section of Receiver Milestones). In 1954, the Festival D1000 would be the world’s first Hi Fi Receiver. By 1956 Bernard Kardon decided to retire and sold his interest to Sidney Harman. As the sole head of HK, he continued to keep HK as a technical leader in Hi Fi products. Sydney Harman would change the name to Harman International but the receivers, tuners and amplifiers were still called Harman Kardon. The name continues presently.

KLH Model Eight Tube Radio. 1960s High Fidelity, Made in the USA! nearly 100% original. Fully restored, re-capped and professionally aligned. The KLH Model Eight was Henry Kloss’s first electronic product. It may be the world’s first true high fidelity table radio, and it is the ONLY tube radio with an acoustic suspension speaker. If you would like to read more about the Model Eight, and see how I restore these, please download my restoration booklet here (post #1): http://www.classicspeakerpages.net

This set is nearly all original. The finish on both pieces was so good I just wiped them down with Howard Restor-a-Finish and applied a coat of Howard Feed-n-Wax. Receiver S/N 011024. Speaker S/N 06663. This radio has been meticulously restored. It features:

SOLID WALNUT CABINETS
ORIGINAL SPEAKER CORD
DUAL 3″ SPEAKER DRIVERS
ORIGINAL GRILLE CLOTH
INTACT ORIGINAL SPEAKER CORD CLEATS
ORIGINAL POWER CORD & PLUG
ORIGINAL KNOBS & DIALS
ORIGINAL METAL LABELS AND LOGOS
ORIGINAL SCHEMATIC ON RECEIVER BOTTOM
ORIGINAL FINISH ON BOTH PIECES

KLH Model Eight 8 FM Tube Radio 6The restoration process: The cabinets were wiped down with Restor-a-Finish, then waxed. The big 4-part electrolytic can capacitor was replaced with a new one. The 4.7uF electrolytic capacitor was replaced with a new film cap. All other caps were checked and found to be plastic so they did not require replacement. The 220 ohm resistors were replaced with 3-watt versions. New, larger diode. New power switch. All tubes were tested. 6U8 was replaced, the others were good. Brown felt stick-on feet added to speaker bottom for protection. The radio was professionally checked and properly aligned. ALSO INCLUDED: A professionally reproduced copy of the Owner’s Manual

Detail
Detail

Known “issues”: There is a small dent in the top of the radio cabinet, shown in photo 10 (at ebay). The finish on the receiver is glossier than the speaker. Schematic on receiver bottom is yellowed and wrinkled, but complete. I will provide a new reproduction schematic if requested. I guarantee satisfaction or your purchase price will be cheerfully refunded. Buy it now on eBay!

It powers up and all the tubes lit up, that was the extent of my testing. It comes with the tubes. With the exception of one ding on the leading edge of the faceplate it is in good cosmetic condition only showing normal scuffs and scratches.

BRAUN ATELIER 3 | Designed by Hans Gugelot and Dieter Rams | Model 1962 -63. This radio is attractive and certainly an eye-catcher. The case has been professionally restored by a carpenter. It looks as good as if it came straight from the store. A radio in this state is very rare to find. Also real strength is the chassis. The chassis has been carefully cleaned and prepared.

Detail

The FM provides the amazing thrilling sound these radio are known for. Even quite strong on FM and AM without any external antenna other than the built-in antennas. Nevertheless, for serious listening, an external antenna will provide amazing radio reception. Please note this is a Europaen model, FM works up to 100MHz. The sound can be controlled by potentiometres and a button Sprache – Speech. I am convinced you will enjoy playing with and listening to the incredible reception of all bands and functions.

Detail

The Braun Atelier 3 has no built-in speakers. It can be connected to low impedance speakers. German special connector for connecting the speakers are supplied with the radio. There is also a cable with jack for external audio sources. Please note some pictures reflect furnishings. The dial glass is beautiful, cleaned and polished. The lower original panel is also in place, it has a small damage. The turntable does not work. Because of the time of use there are small scratches on the aluminum side panels. But even these traces of use the radio shows make it a beautiful antique. Please look to the pictures carefully.

Detail

I´m using a check-list with approx. 80 points for all work which has to be done in an old tube-radio to make it running for the next „50“ years. So I measured all voltages, tested tubes, checked and replaced electrical and mechanical components, adjusted the filters, lubricated the mechanics, checked and fastened screws. And did very much more necessary work. After all work was done, the radio was tested 120 hours before it was placed in the auction. I´m using a automatic watch controlled system for test procedure.
