vintage radio - Sears Silvertone - ivory - AM only - 1960s
plastic body and knobs, gridded front grill - UL Listed
taupe power cord - these were sold only by Sears Roebuck & Co.

measures: 9¾ x 4 x 6h | 24.76 x 10.16 x 15.24 cm

condition: very good vintage - There are minor scuffs overall, the makers label was removed from the bottom by a former owner, no chips or cracks are present. There is a small rattling noise inside when the radio is lifted and shaken but it does not affect the appearance or sound of the radio. This radio is in working condition but is vintage and requires a few moments for the tube to heat up before the sound is produced. All issues have been considered in the asking price.

We have tested this item for basic functionality but have not used it for any length of time. Because we sell items in as found condition and have no history of their former life we cannot provide a guarantee of internal components or longevity of use.

Safety Notes: This item is not intended for use as a toy. Electric parts could pose a hazard to small children and pets. Purchase and use with caution and at your own risk.

Shipping note: This item is fragile, will ship alone and does not count toward combined shipping on a multi-item order. Mailing cost is based on Oregon to New York. Your cost may be less if you live nearer the west coast; difference (if any) will be refunded to PayPal after shipment.

It has been 30 years since Sears ended its association with the Silvertone brand, but the public's association is so strong to this day that many still believe Silvertone is a Sears brand. In 1915, Sears introduced the Silvertone phonograph, a hand-cranked machine that came in tabletop and freestanding models. All phonographs came with a two-week, money-back guarantee.

Sears began selling Silvertone radios in the early 1920s, soon adding Silvertone radio tubes and batteries to the product line. In the late 1930s, however, Silvertone radios quickly took off in popularity. The era corresponded with the outbreak of military aggressions in the Pacific theater. With the approach of WW II, many people bought radios not just for entertainment, but also to receive updates on the progress of the war.
