American Bosch 680
This stately 13 tube radio was manufactured in Springfield, MA in 1936. Each band in its dial is color coded to match the band switch position.The chassis is broken up into two parts to isolate noise from the power supply. The lower section is for audio and power and the upper section for radio circuits. It produces a big sound because it puts out 20 watts of sound through the 14 inch speaker.The cabinet features light and dark contrasted veneers and a detailed inlay at the top. The recessed speaker grill provides interest to the look. Very heavy; local pick up in the Washington/Oregon area advised.
