Notice the name on the dial. Unable to find that company. Looks like a class project and the wiring and solder joints are very neat. No clues on the components. Tubes are: 50L6, 35Z5 etc.

Any ideas?

Same as my kit Philmore, except a different grill style; I can email the 5 page PDF for building it if you'd like.

Don't be fooled by the dates of manufacture given at the radioattic, as those are unconfirmed guesses by the owners.
It is certainly possible, even likely, that the cabinets were cast in the late 1940s, and early 50s. But kits with the same Bakelite cabinet are still being advertised in the 1959 publication.
