The Radiola 44 was one of RCA's last TRF receivers of the 1920s and in my opinion one of the best performing. Attractive "Art Deco" styling, a five tube set featuring 3 screen grid tuned stages; 2 RF +  detector/AF amplifier. The Output tube = #45, the rectifier #80.

Many (if not most) of Radiola models 21, 44, 46 (all use the same RF chassis) suffer the same chronic problem, pot metal cancer! The chassis in this one is an exception, it is in excellent condition, no sign of deterioration. As I previously stated; "my opinion is; the '44 is one of the best performing of the Radiola TRF sets of the 1920s" A very selective and sensitive receiver and excellent performer. The dial scale is kinda' neat, the station numbers are light projected onto the back side of the dial lens.
