The subject line says it. A couple of days ago I saw, in a local repair shop,
a just restored shutterdial chassis that looked stupendous. The cabinet
was a floor model but the radio would fit in a table model. Are there such things?

My floor is now reserved for pre-1957 color TVs.

Probably the most prominent and most collectible Zenith Shutterdial table radios are the 232 series "Walton" models.

Zenith called it the "Robot Dial" but collectors have given it the name "Shutter dial"

Table models would be
7-J-232
7-S-232
9-S-232
12-S-232

All above are called "Walton" models.

The 1939 model 9-S-324 and 1940 model 12-S-445 are the only others I know of.
