Antique Tube Radios


Hello and welcome to Antique Tube Radios. Your one stop for vintage radios from as far back as the 1920s and manufacturers such as Zenith, Philco, RCA, Westinghouse, and many more.

The console tube radio was the center piece of every house back in the era of radio. They were big and expensive going for as much as $700 back in the late 1930s. These vintage radios were mainly for the rich and were placed in hallways and living rooms.

Most console radios were waist high and not very wide and as the years went on they got shorter and wider. Most consumer tube radios were made by RCA, Philco, General Electric, Westinghouse, and many more. Brands such as Zenith, Scott, Atwater-Kent, were mainly for the rich as their prices ran into the $500-$800 range in the 1930s and 1940s.

Table top radios came in many styles such as cathedral and tombstone (two of our favorites). At that time in history, tube radios we mainly manufactured by hand. An art that is sadly lost in our modern times. The quality and workmanship that went into creating these radios is something that attracts collectors to this day.

We now invite to look around our store as we are confident you'll find just the piece to add to your collection or start one. We have teamed up with ebay, the world's online marketplace, to bring you the best deals possible on antique tube radios.
 
We've made it easy to find what you're looking for by splitting up the antique tube radios by years. You can also use our search feature to narrow down your selection by manufacturer for example.

Sincerely,
The Antique Tube Radios Team
