The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
I found this beauty at an estate sale. I am looking for any information I can find about it...and value. Radio and turntable need to be cleaned up and connected and tested. Missing the speakers but I do have the remote controls. Cabinet is massive and impressive. Weighs perhaps 300 lbs. Inlay work is stunning. Very little damage to the veneer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I am certain that you will receive many offers. I'd like to know the final price - probably all would. Personally it would be irresponsible for me to take this on right now. I literally have a warehouse full of projects and parts, including some rare Scotts: The Philly I mentioned, several 800bs, an 800bt, an export. I just can't, really. Good luck with it though.
BTW Uship.com is a way to move this.
It takes a lot to make me log in, but this is the most astounding set that I have seen in a long time. That appears to be a completely custom but professionally designed cabinet. It is not a repurposed Capehart, nor a GE, nor a Brunswick, nor an RCA. The Philharmonic with remote is very, very rare. Of course the two remote sender units that you picture are themselves worth thousands - especially if they are prewar.
I have a remote FM Philharmonic that is on my bucket list. Yours is worth the same treatment that I intend for mine - complete rechrome and stuffed caps. The tt is also worthy of mechanical clean and lube. It should perform well. Won't you consider to photograph your restoration thoroughly, and post it?
