The Philco Model 20 Deluxe Cathedral was introduced in August of 1930 at a price of $49.50 "less the tubes". The "Baby Grand" is a seven tube TRF (tuned radio frequency) set powering an eight-inch electrodynamic speaker with a frequency coverage of 550 to 1500 kilohertz. It was acquired through an auction as "working", it does not, but it will!
The birds eye maple and fluted columns distinguish this model
as the "Deluxe" model 20.
The main problem with the cabinet is the grill is broken.
I will probably order a new grill from a gentleman who
actually produces replacement cabinet parts for Philco
cathedrals (America, WHAT A COUNTRY!).
This, of course, is the rear view of the cabinet. The good news, the arch is in place and sound. This should make for an easier restoration and a sound cabinet structure.
