This Firestone gives the idea of portability, with its built in handle. However, this is a 5-tube AC only set with power transformer which requires you to be plugged in at all times. This radio retailed for $17.95. By the time the Spring Summer 1940 catalog came out, the price on this radio had been dropped to $15.95, and was listed as "quantities limited".
The set on the left has been refinished, and the knobs don't quite match. Click the photo for a larger image. To read about the restoration, click here.
