Antique Radio in “House” Season 8 Episode 5

In “House”, Season 8 Episode 5 (aired 11/7), we can see that the good Doctor has a 1937 Philco 37-620 Radiobar in his office. Unclear whether or not it has the original glassware. I’d love to have one of these in my collection, but they’re quite rare and expensive.

Philcoradio.com has some more about the history:

This Philco Radiobar sold for $252.50 in 1937 dollars, around $3800 in today’s money. This was a high end luxury for the wealthy to have in their homes, but out of reach of most consumers of the time.

    JWK,

    It’s Gary again. Yes I still have my Radiobar and it is for sale.

    All glass is perfect. 24 glasses, 4 booze bottles, shaker and bitters bottle.

    Cork screw and shot dispenser.

    Very interesting, especially with the original glass! I’m very curious, what’re you looking to get out of it? I’ll be honest, I doubt it’s in my price range at this point, but I’d be happy to point you in the direction of some resources to help with the sale if you’re serious about moving it.
