I've only seen a few Wilcox Gay radios. I was at a flea market today and found this buried under a pile of junk. Got it for $5! Anyway, after taking it apart and cleaning it up, it works perfectly. I was going to give it a full re-cap, but as it seems to work great now, there's no rush I suppose unless I get bored. Its actually really well constructed. Whoever owned it must have used it a lot because every tube is a totally different manufacture. It even sounds pretty decent. Notice the side pic: there are tiny strips of brass embedded into the wood. Nice Art Deco treatment.

Ya, its pretty nice. Its cool that it works because for some reason, it seems that most tiny radios I've picked up never work or are in terrible condition.

Congratulations on your find. Can't beat the price for a radio in that condition.

Whoever had it kept good care of it. It was indeed really clean.
