The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
Many of us know that in late 1937 E H Scott offered the Autotrope as part of the Scott lineup of radios. I recently acquired an Autotrope. I believe this is the Autotrope that is featured in the Scott News 11/37 as it is white. The cabinet is solid wood, English oak, and is a white lime finish, which is unusual for mid 1930s. The Autotrope is complete. I removed the side panels in order to reduce the weight of the cabinet as I needed to place this cabinet on furniture dollies to move it about. It is extremely heavy, more some than a Ravenna Grand. With the side panels removed, I took the accompanying photographs. Enjoy!
I have attached photos. What I would truly appreciate is hearing if there is anyone else in this society that has an Autotrope. I really need some photos of it and have a few questions:
Does it have a Scott 16 or Scott 18? Are there two speakers or one; and if two, what manufacturer? Is there a crossover unit present. What type of finish is on the Autotrope? I have more questions too.
