Atwater Kent Model 30
The Model 30 radio
was manufactured in 1926. It had six tubes and was battery powered. This was the
first Atwater Kent radio to use a single knob for tuning and was a major selling
point for this model.
The speaker is an Atwater Kent Type E 2.

Atwater Kent sold radios to various furniture
makers for inclusion in their cabinets. This piece is great in the den or as reception
furniture in a private office as well. Here is an example of a model 30 in
a Pooley cabinet. Notice the storage space in the bottom for the batteries. These
