This was a rental set which appeared around the 30s 40s. In those days sets were expensive and people often rented, thus saving on repair bills which were high, valves expensive during this period. Prompted to put this up seeing that Philco set...At this time American sets were available in the UK and they used a resistance cord to drop the voltage for these American sets.

Resistance cord... That's actually a pretty nifty idea. Although I imagine the voltage going into the set varied quite a bit with things such as volume adjustments.

Very nice. See what I mean about antique radios being addicting?

Thanks nice to see the interest in these and yes resistance cords were used but they had to be kept the full length and not coiled up (heat).

Interested in the history of electric lighting and incandescent in particular and neon glow lamps.
