Well done home brew? Or custom made by the furniture factory? Looks like 1934 6 tube chassis like 118.

Very well done....
No real indicators of it being homebrew but it is really close to the ground...
No grill mistakes, all knobs are level, escutcheon is centered... Veneer matches, color matches...

Hard one...

Looks to me like an aftermarket conversion of the one music cabinet. The quality of the radio panel veneer doesn't quite hold up to the quality of the cabinet's outer veneer. Whether this conversion was amateurishly done or professionally done, it looks to have been fairly well done.

Stewart Warner was big with end-table radios back then. I had one once. I agree that it's a well done home-brew or maybe a custom job done back in the day.

You could hurt your back trying to tune in a station on that thing.
