Default Radio and Record Player Auction

Just come across an upcoming auction of sets - a single owner collection of 135 lots at Chalkwells Auctions, online only ending 3rd April 2024. All estimates £20-£40 with a lot of descriptive quirks: many portables described as transistor instead of valve, record players described by their decks, 1960s sets described as 'early'...

https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/a...id-srchal10436

There are, however, sets from the 1930s onwards, although most appear to be 1950s and 1960s.

All nowt to do wi' me!

Very nice example of a Gerry Wells repro of the EKCO AD75

These were made of MDF if memory serves I watched them being built must have been 20 to 30 years ago now

Thanks for the tip some nice sets in this auction.

Cheers

Yes, some very nice and tempting stuff there but I shall keep my hands firmly in my pockets!

Lot 86 is particularly interesting... A Bakerlite Bush transistor radio - it's a DAC 90a, somehow I think there's been a listing error
