Hello

I’m new to both the forum and the world of vintage radios. I have just purchased a radiogram that has the brand / model on the controls of Electrola De-Luxe . I have been googling like mad trying to find information and diagrams etc to help me restore this piece, unfortunately I cannot find the brand anywhere.

If anyone knows where I could find this information I would greatly appreciate a heads up.

Kindest regards

Danny

Electrola was a brand name used by RCA (USA) from mid 1920's to around 1930. However, your set might be a badge-engineered one, with a local manufacturer using that name.

Good in-focus photos of the front and rear can help with model identification, as can letting us know the valve line-up (i.e. the types of valves on the chassis).

If there's an ARTS&P sticker on the chassis let us know its colour and the code letter on it.

Also, let us know any brand name showing on the gramophone section.

Hi GTC Thanks for your info it is locally manufactured in Sydney at 14 Barrack Street the company is long gone now, turntable is Garrard which I have pics of in another thread under Techtalk subject Garrard GC-2

ARTS&P is light blue and the number is 640848 unfortunately there are no markings left on the valves but pics are in the thread I mentioned.

Barrack Street right next to the Reliance radio factory. Maybe that is a hint who made them. Reliance Radio was 10 Barrack street.

^ could well be. They included the names of nearby streets into some of their models, such as York and Kent.
