Private Radio Phonograph and Gramophone Collection for Sale
My retirement hobby is restoring technical antiques, in particular old tube radios, gramophones, phonographs and TVs. At age of 76 not collecting anything anymore, in order to be able to continue my hobby, and to create the necessary space I need to sell my finished restoration works. Here are the results of another year of hard work.
 

 

The following table and slide show lists radios, gramophones, phonographs, TV's, and other technical antiques in no particular order. The objects vary in styles (console, cathedral, tombstone, etc.), materials (wood, catalin, beetle, plaskon, bakelite, plastic, metal, leather, etc.) and years of birth (from 1880 to 2000). That means there is something for everyone who loves musical antiques, or knows someone who does. The collection naturally contains a substantial number of rare radios made in Canada, since I am in Vancouver, Canada. The objects are restored inside and out as softly as possible and as agressively as necessary to get them back to original condition, and all work flawlessly in all their respective functions. For many of the items I finished writing detailed documentation and restoration reports, including youtube video footages (click on "Details" in first column of the table below), the other documentations will be added one by one. For all items I have already taken many pictures (click on "Slides" in first column or request more pictures ("pix av.") to be sent to you). Please check back for updates to the list, including new and sold items. Please e-mail (chriswch@shaw.ca) me or phone me at (1) 604-688-9654 (ask for Kris), to ask questions, ask for more photos, make a viewing appointment, make me an offer, or buy an item. Ich spreche Deutsch, je parle Français.
I take all forms of payment including Paypal and as former EBay seller with 100% positive feedback I know how to ship safely to anywhere in the world. I do not charge for handling. One letter (this was for a Space Age Bubble Stereo on Tulip Pedestal with Speakers) may stand for the hundreds I got from happy customers.

Just wanted to thank you for the Electrohome Circa 711. The care you took in properly packaging it is greatly appreciated – it arrived in perfect order. We are thrilled with our purchase and enjoying this cool piece. Thanks Julie
I also buy unrestored radios, gramophones, and phonographs, help you assess their commercial value, and - in selected cases - offer repair service and parts supply.
