I started restoration in October of 2004.

I had never seen or heard of this particular set, but it electrically resembles other Crosley sets from the mid 40's

Restoration finished January of 2005.  It was a pretty easy restore since the set hadn't been tampered with before and the wood case was in generally good shape.  The book cut veneer adds a nice touch to this set.
