Item #2649

At the time, Westinghouse was the frontrunner for all of the copycat Skyscraper radios to follow. This statuesque and collectible piece features the warmth of tube radio AND a clock. The tube radio and  clock were recently restored along with the  refinished cabinet. It is now ready for another 90-100 years of service.
