Zenith Model 12-A-58, 1936.  They called this 12-tube model the poor manís Stratosphere. It features a stylish cabinet with a wooden torch centered in the large concave grille area.  This model uses the same chassis as the 12-A-57 but incorporates a 12-inch auditorium dynamic speaker and a 6-inch high frequency speaker (Dimensional Tone).  The 4 bands are individually illuminated with different colors.  Other features include:  Split-Second and Shadowgraph tuning and Overtone Amplifier.  Original price: $159.95.  If I could only have one radio excluding the Stratosphere models, this would be the one!
