Zenith 11-S-474

The large body style of this 11 tube Zenith console from 1940 has a very demanding presence. It has a rounded motif from top to bottom, including the rolled and pleated speaker cloth and the dial cover. There are some great bells and whistles, including a magic green tuning eye and “tone organ” pushbuttons that use 6 different tones selectors (tenor, bass, etc.) this allows the user to tailor the tone to personal preference. A Wavemagnet antenna, and a big 12 in speaker add to the great sound. Dimensions are 43” tall, 29” wide and 16"deep weight 80lb.
