The Console Radio
“Console Radio” is a generic term for a valve set thats not a Mantel or Table model. A Floor Stander, in other words. The most desirable, and the ones fetching the most money are ones from the early 1940s, when designers were putting some effort into the design of the cabinets, rather than just making a plywood box to hold the “wireless”. Brands to keep an eye out for are Astor and Airzone, which in this writers opinion are the most attractive from this era.
