This Wilson model was one of the last models Wilson produced before
WWII. It was fitted with either a 8, 9, or 10 tube chassis.
The dial design was Charles Wilson's idea. After seeing a smaller
dial that was designed for another brand of radio, Charles asked Crow,
the Chicago based company that supplied Wilson Laboratories it's dials
and escutcheons, if it would be possible to make a larger version of
the same dial for his radios, they did. Today a majority of
Wilson radios that are found throughout Indiana feature this large
dial. Originally Wilson produced two styles of upright, two
styles of slant front console, and one style of table model radios, all
featuring this giant dial. The cabinets for these models were all
supplied by Jenkins Cabinets of Indianapolis, Indiana. I aquired
this radio, in 1998, from an antique shop in Manchester, Indiana.
