Rare ORIOLE MODEL 7 Radio Receiver - 1925 - Made by W-K Electric of Kenosha:

ORIOLE Model 7 Radio Receiver - 1925 - made by W-K Electric Company of Kenosha, Wisconsin.This is a very rare piece - it featured a unique "cathode follower" circuit that was patented by Anthony Winther.
The 1925 ads for the Oriole claimed "Built on an entirely new principle, with a circuit never used before, the Oriole has no superior for selectivity, volume, and pure tone"W-K Electric Company was connected to the Winther Motor Company (trade name Winther Kenosha or W-K) which made cars in the 1920's and firetrucks briefly in 1926.
As far as I can tell W-K Electric produced receivers from 1924 to 1927. This originally was mounted in a wood cabinet NOTE: I did not test the radio and do not have a way to test the tubes or power it up. Radio is complete with the 5 original tubes in bayonet sockets.
Tube line up:
Across the back are 3 Cunningham CX301 A
Left front is a RCA Radiotron US201A
Right front is a RCA Radiotron 171-ASize is 21" wide x 7" high and 9" deep. It is in very nice condition - beautiful bakelite front panel and knobs. Interior is clean and appears complete. The only damage I could find is the wire coil loop on the left side - the bakelite ring is cracked and mounting loose. This will be carefully packed for shipping - the tubes removed and wrapped separately - insurance included. Check my future listings - I have some Hammarlund Roberts parts to list. Email me about shipping - I may be able to ship it for less using Fed Ex Ground.
