Posting a picture would help us to identify the radio.

Okay. Here is my GUESS. And it is just a GUESS.

This radio looks really Philco-ish to me. I can't see the bezel around the dial to read what it says, but that looks Philco-ish as well. Like a model 70 or similiar. It also appears to me that the third hole on the row of knobs on the bottom may have been filled for some reason. Again, there is not enough detail for me to be sure, but there should be a third knob on the bottom, for like a tone control. The knob on the left is for on-off and volume, the center for band switch, the third for tone and the top one for tuning. That would be my educated GUESS. Hopefully, wiser men than I will have more information for you.

Regards

WC

Denver, this site wasn't made to copy, paste photos, and, I can't help that. I own the forums, but, not the site.
As for your radio, I enlarged it, and, it's a Crosley.

It looks like a Philco to me that somebody did away with the tone control Like WC said. I enlarged it also and dont see Crosley anywhere. Sorry Bill. I have a model 60 but it has a much plainer cabinet but the knobs and escutcheon looks the same. Maybe thats the difference between the model 60 and the 60/505 is the cabinet and some minor circuit changes.

Actually I meant to be typing a "60" instead of "70". I had a senior moment and hit the wrong key. After consulting my "Cathedral And Tombstone Radios" book, by Mark V. Stein, on page 192, there is a picture of a Philco 60, five tubes, circa 1933. That appears to be a dead ringer for the radio in question. Why someone went to all the trouble to fill the third hole in the cabinet is anyone's guess. Thank you for the "like" Denver. I was just guessing, however, I felt I was pretty close.

Tony, according to the above-referenced book, there are FIVE seperate model 60 Philco radios listed! There is the model 60 we are talking about, five tubes, 1 band, 1933. There is a model 60-B, five tubes, 2 bands, 1935. Then a model 60-B, five tubes, 1 band, 1935 and a model 60MB, 1 band 1934, but this one has a squarish cabinet. The other three model 60's have the round cathedral cabinet with different front arch trim. There is another squarish model 60-B, five tube, 1 band, from 1938. Philco must have really liked model 60 for some reason.
