NICE WORKING VINTAGE ADDISON 5D. The radio was recently checked over, two resistors replaced and the radio works fine and still has one Addison tube. There is a repair to a hairline crack in the cone of the speaker as shown in the photos. I have played the radio quite loud for extended periods with no vibration/rattle or distortion. The radio has a nice warm sound and is surprisingly loud. The cabinet has very nice marbling and shine and the grill cloth is clean and in tact. The power indicator light works, as does the band selector and volume control. The underside of the radio has the original sticker showing the tube layout. There is a thin drip of some kind of clear residue on the right side of the case that is virtually invisible and i have not attempted to clean. Please note that all of the photos were taken in bright, atypical lighting, so beware of reflections. Other photos available upon request. A fine sought-after piece of vintage Canadian radio history!

Please be sure to review all my other auctions after you have looked at this one! I will be listing a broad and diverse range of vintage communications and technology items, related books, periodicals and ephemera… This is one of the finest loop antennas I have ever seen! It is incredible and was manufactured in Berlin by the Deutsche Telephonwerke und Kablelindustrie A. And stands 41″ tall and 39″ wide. The sleek mahogany support system is magnificently designed and is fully collapsible… Even the feet fold over as you can see in the photos!! The three-footed base includes a metal engraved directional wheel and pointer. Finish and materials are all original. There is some fraying to the original silk wire as you can see in the photos, but there are no splices or repairs. All the metallic pieces are clean and functional, bindng posts are all present and spring loaded supports are operating as new. All these components are also original. One of the wooden washers has a hairline crack that has been glued but not noticeable without close inspection. This loop anteanna is simply a work of engineering art! Interestingly, the sole importer for the USA and Canada of this device was the Tobe C. Of Boston, and later, Canton, MA. The Sales Manager at Tobe C. Since the company made radio components and imported technical and radio apparatus, they opened a store in downtown Boston called: “The Radio Shack”!! And yes, Tobe went on to be a founder of Radio Shack! And, Bill went on to form The Hallicrafters Company in 1933!! Deutschmann Laboratories was a renouned supplier of components for US military radar during WWII. The company was also recognized for developing and supplying a filter device that suppressed the static that jeopardized radio communication between US Army tanks opposing the Germans in North Africa. It’s amazing that this loop could have so much history surrounding the journey from Berlin to Boston in the early 1920′s! That’s about it… I hope she finds a good home! I will pack all items properly and with great care. Charges will be invoiced seperately. THANK YOU FOR LOOKING!
