I won this off of Shopgoodwill.com last week, and of course, the label is missing just after the word...."model:". I looked on Google Images with no luck.
It looks like the knobs and speaker are used in a 41-220 also. The tube lineup is: 35Z5, 50L6, 7A8, 7B7, 7C6. Thanks......Kurt

We discussed this exact radio several days ago. It started life as a model 42-KR3 and was given away as a promotion when a customer purchased a new Philco refrigerator, as the bottom was curved to sit safely on top of the curved metal cabinet of the refrigerator.

It's not original and the cabinet has been stripped of its original white paint and the bottom has been removed. Unfortunately at this point since it's been modified, it has little to no value to a radio collector but will still display nicely.

OK, thanks....I didn't see the previous posts. It looks like someone was "eyeing" this same radio.
