Brand: Breville.
Model: 89.
Valves: 1C4, 1C6, 1C4, 1B5, 1D4.
Year of manufacture: 1938.
Place of manufacture: Sydney, NSW.
Approximate value: $280.00.

Summary:

Most people know Breville as a manufacturer of kitchen appliances. Many people have a jaffle iron in their cupboard made by Breville - Breville invented the appliance when they turned away from manufacturing radios. This receiver was made in 1938. It was aimed at the rural market due to its power coming from a 6 volt "A" battery which had to be recharged quite often due to the heavier current drain.

This receiver is large and heavy. It generates its own high tension voltage by running a vibrator which is powered by the 6 volt lead-acid battery. Because battery-powered radios were seldom turned on most of them survive the years a lot better than their mains-powered counterparts.

Hmmm, no B+ on those bottles... the plates are still grey.

Fine wine comes in glass bottles, not plastic sacks. Therefore the finer electrons are also found in glass bottles.
