Can anyone tell me what model Brunswick console this is? I would be grateful for any other information anybody may have about it, too. Thanks!

Yep, nothing too special about it. It's a nice radio, but waaaay overpriced in my opinion.

These were made by Bremer Tully which Brunswick had bought into about 1929.
Very beefy chassis and unusual construction techniques, but they are fairly common and can be had cheaply.
I think i paid $15 and $40 for the two I owned.
I've since let them go. I can't recall what i got for the better one (maybe $100?), but the $15 one got left with a theater group.

I will say the variable tuning capacitor gang as well as many mechanical components are made of pot metal.
It is hit or miss on whether the variable cap or other parts have survived the test of time.

They are nice performers when working.
