When I got this radio it was quite a mess and the grill cloth was torn.
I recapped the radio and then U worked on the cabinet. The radio is a 1933 DeForest Crosley
model 851 and it is called the Mayfair/ York.
It is the only radio I have that has two speakers.
A very different feature us that when you change the tone it causes a plastic piece to move behind the main dial, causing the dial to get darker ,as you get more bass
The cabinet is made by McLagan which was a manufacturer that made fine quality gramophone cabinets up until about 1927.
They then made cabinets for radio manufacturers.
The cabinet came out very nice. I just thought I would share it
Here are some photos.
