Default HMV Radiogram Type 495 For Sale. Collection Only.

This has sat in my house for over ten years and has sadly not gained the attention it needs nor frankly deserves. (Usual story.)

Purchased for just under 100 back in the mid 2000s I am looking for a token 20 to justify the time and space it has consumed from my life.

Collection only from Braintree - North Essex - UK. At a time to suit you.

The item in question is a HMV type 495 Radiogram circa 1937. (80th birthday year)

As per: http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/hismasters_495.html

Cabinet is sound/solid beneath a layer of dust - some front panel veneer is dried, cracked and missing.

Electronics/valves intact and as far as I can establish they have not been tampered with, although the cotton power cable has been cut off.

Gramophone deck is felt lined and in good condition.

This is really it's last chance - I had a local restorer interested earlier in the year but he did not turn up after assuring me he would collect one weekend.

...if there are no takers this time it will be offered to one of those nasty furniture up-cyclers to be crucified on the alter of Shabby Chic.

Although I thought it would make a good composite humidor and port rack

Has been rescued yesterday by me, but it is in a terrible state with the bottom half covered with woodworms holding hands.

The best this to do is, I guess, to strip it for parts unfortunately. There are several parts (e.g. bakelite ones, the chassis, backpanels and deck)) which are in good condition considering the place where the radiogram came from.

It's a big beast that's for sure !

But this one will meet its maker, as is it too far gone to make a restoration job worth while.
