Base of cabinet with central painted vignette of courting,and scenic vistas at sides. Interior with single glass shelf, velvet-line bottom shelf, and storage space below. On back, impressed number 537, and incised marks X.X.M. Cabinet very well preserved, and well cared for. The painted vignettes remain fresh and vivacious. The mirrored backing a later but still old addition, while the display light is more recent. Comes with key for the locking door. Height: 56-3/4".
Estimated Value $2,000 - 3,000.
Ex Dr. Pipito collection.

Lot 1112
Eye-catching Silvertone Console Radio. United States, c. 1936. Model 4586. This is a 10-tube console radio, with futuristic "tuning eye" (a quaintly atmospheric green flickering Radon tube), large powerful-looking single speaker, and very handsome cabinetry in multi-wood veneers and solids. The champagne-colored circular tuning dial shows that the set could receive both U.S. and foreign worldwide broadcasts. The controls were comprised in five brown bakelite knobs (one with chipping). Made, or marketed by Sears, this was their high end radio, costing a whopping $100 in its time (probably equivalent to several thousand dollars in today's money). Wood nicely refinished, the speaker cloth perhaps original -- it certainly looks period. The cord was replaced a long time ago, but should be done again. Parts and tubes are still available for these old "symphony" machines. Height: 38".

To quote a Sears catalog…. "Powerful … Beautiful … Rich, Full Range Tone. Yes, this Silvertone has everything you need to get everything you want… It's so powerful it brings in Foreign Stations and Long Distance American Stations with amazing Ease and Clearness."
Estimated Value $500 - 700.
