I thought this was a cut-down console until I looked it up on RMorg. Pretty neat, IMO. No pics of the grill cloth.

I can't get past the cut-down look.

I'm trying to like something about it, but it's just not happening. A real goof of a design.

I can't figure out how you're supposed to sit in a chair and tune it. Does the dial face towards the chair or away? Is it particularly taller than most chairsides?

Interestingly, it seems to have the same chassis as the radio my mom's cousin gave me, the WR-226. See July Finds & Losses, pg. 11: http://antiqueradios.com/forums/viewtop ... &start=200.

Really strange design. The other one you spotted was stranger still and wouldn't have thought in 100 years it was an actual model until I looked.(palegreen's other thread)

I was thinking of looking at that, but I thought it was chopped. Look how tiny the speaker is! :shock:
