    The WR-214 was the largest table model radio Westinghouse produced for 1937 and is the sister set to the American Bosch 670T.  One main difference between the two sets, aside from cosmetic differences, is the tuning indicator.  While the 670T uses a shadow tuning indicator that changes color to match the band the set is switched to, the WR-214 uses a tuning eye tube in place of the shadowing tuning indicator, though, the window where the tuning indicator would have been still changes colors to match the band the set is switched to.  Today the WR-214 is considered an extremely rare model to find which is quite a contrast to the next model down, the WR-212 which is fairly common.  I purchased this set at the summer 1998 I.H.R.S. swap meet at Indianapolis.
