Circa 1930 Radio

on May 14, 2014

Another addition for our 1920s/30s dining room. This DeForest Crosley radio, which Mr. Restyle fell in love with, now occupies a corner in our home. I don’t know anything about it except that the company was located in Toronto.

The great thing about this is that it still actually works! it takes a few minutes for the bulbs to warm up.

I haven’t done any refinishing to it. I may just leave it the way it is. It is a little rough along the top and the screen is in need of some repair. A quick and inexpensive fix to swap out the fabric.

The kids wondered why there was no FM radio on this thing.

Now all I have left to do in here is repair the chairs, build a new leaf for the table, add some window treatments, reupholster the chairs and hang a new era-appropriate crystal waterfall chandelier!

    Oh! That’s in SUCH good shape! Agreed- all it needs is a fabric swap and a buff-up. That’s really gorgeous- congrats on your “score”! đŸ˜€
