The tag says Automatic Radio Mfg. Co. That's your manufacturer. It's an Automatic C-15.

The mentions of RCA and Hazeltine are just license notices... That's who Automatic was paying royalties to, to use their radio patents.

That's not an RCA radio. That radio was manufactured by the Automatic Radio Mfg. Co. of Boston, Mass. The tag states that this radio uses technology of which RCA has licensed Automatic to use. The C-15 model designation is correct.

I find nothing under Automatic that looks even remotely similar.....and nothing for a C-15 except this:

Please post the tube types, a closeup of the dial, and a rear view showing the innards.

(The dial actually looks RCA-ish....)

That tube lineup is as common as dirt, but the ballast narrows it way down:

only one automatic on the list, but I can't find it anywhere---nothing else on the list looks close.

How about a **readable** picture of the dial?---looks like you need some disassembly for that

It looks like there's a name on the dial face. If there is, what is the name?

You might be surprised.....that is a pretty distinctive graphic---someone may recognize it.

Look at this:
https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/westinghou_wr101.html

the grillecloth site list the WR103 as having the right tube lineup, but it does not look anything like yours.

So--maybe look up the Rider's info for both Westinghouse and Bosch (Bosch made some of the Westinghouse models)

The very different Automatic radio posted at the radio attic might be mis-identified as a C-15. The label looks like it may actually say C-12?

The critter on the 'coat of arms' may be a lion, but it has no mane, so is it a female? A cougar, or a panther? Maybe just a wiener dog. :lol:

I have a copy of WR103.... its very close, it has the right tube match plus the K49C is wired the same as the WR103....so I may have to use that as a reff...... :roll:.......Look at the WR101 and it looks closer..... I'm going to check them both out and see whos closer
