Vintage Trav-ler Tube Radio

Vintage Trav-ler Tube Radio

The Trav-ler Radio  Corporation was founded in 1921 and manufactured table  radios, record players and in 1951 added television sets  until 1965.

They were located at 571 W. Jackson Blvd., Chicago, Illinois. Presented is a fine example of their fashionable style, the Trav-Ler Tube Radio Model 5170. This is a great looking early 1950s tube radio housed in a solid wood cabinet. The cabinet is in great condition, the radio comes on but we were unable to get a station on it. The second hand on the clock sweeps as it should, it is missing one of the clock knobs. I like the stylized numbers on the dials and the clock has a Telechron movement with red sweep second hand. Measures 5 1/2 x 11 x 5 1/2 inches, Serial Number 2197751, Model 5170 Superheterodyne Radio and Electric Time Clock Combination – Trav-Ler Radio Corporation. This awesome vintage tube radio is sold as a collectible and due to age sold as is.
