Product Description

Fine looking mahogany box with lid. The lid has a transfer logo with B T-H and the front side has RADIOLA 1.

Opening the box reveals the controls on the ebonite front plate, with terminals for antenna and earth, the tuning knob, a series/parallel switch, a switch for selecting crystal 1 or 2, and connections for headphones. The container with the 2 crystals is, alas, missing. On the underside of the lid is a printed card with the Instructions, dated 1924. There is a metal label with the maker’s details: THE BRITISH THOMSON-HOUSTON Co Ltd – RUGBY ENGLAND name "Radiola" is printed on the front of the box; the BTH logo on the top of the lid and the BBC logo on the front of the lid.

The first version of the receiver appeared in 1923. In 1924 the brand name "Radiola" was added. The radio was sold until 1925. At the time, the set cost 4£ 15s, including a 4000 ohm BTH set of headphones.
