Silvertone 6102A "Automatic Streamliner"
1938
Bands: AM
Tube Lineup: 6D6, 6D6, 6F5, 25L6, 12Z3
This black bakelite Silvertone is modeled after the successful 4500 model that did not have pushbuttons. The cabinet encloses the chassis completely and has beautiful deco styling. There are other models similar to the 4500 that used less lovely cylindrical pushbuttons with notches for a screwdriver to readjust the pushbutton settings, but fortunately the pushbuttons on the 6102A look nicer. Below is a 1938 advertisement showing the 6102A priced at $8.95. The walnut bakelite 6105A was also $8.95 and the ivory 6103A was $9.95. These came with an optional carrying case and I have never seen a surviving example.
