A beautiful Jackson Bell Model 62 (Modern) from 1930. The Jackson Bell line of radios are hard to find and are highly collectable. They were one of the few radio manufacturers on the West Coast (Los Angeles) in the early days of radio. One of the partners was Herbert Bell who went on to found Packard-Bell. The notable examples of Jackson Bell radios are the "Peter Pan", "Tulip", "Swan", and "Peacock" grille styles. This one has the Fleur-de-lis design in the grille cutout. The wood cabinet has been nicely refinished and is in excellent condition. Has original knobs in excellent condition. Has original ID plate on rear. Has new speaker wiring. The radio has been electronically serviced by the Antique Radio Store in San Diego and plays strongly and clearly with wire antenna for good reception. Receives on AM band.
