Default Re: Possibly a Barton and/or Premier?

The valve line up included an ARP34 which was apparently was the CV equivalent of the EF89. The rest you have included sound about right. I'm still thinking it is an aglomeration of sets. The wiring doesn't look to be a kit to be honest, all joints wrapped then soldered unless the person who built it was familiar with the technique? Yes, I've seen the Premier on the Radiomuseum website & they all have Premier on the dial. The puzzler was the dial shows a SW band but there are only two positions on the waveband switch. Perhaps that's another clue that it's possibly more than one set?
I just liked the "look" of it but then I'm a sucker for bakelite radios in general!
Many thanks for your comments & for taking the time to post.
