Siren #95: Arthur's Apparatus

Siren #95: Arthur's Apparatus


Founded by Arthur Atwater Kent (1873-1949), the Atwater Kent Manufacturing company was the largest maker of radios in the world by 1925.

At its peak in 1929, the company employed over 12,000 workers at 4700 Wissahickon Ave. in northwest Philadelphia (now Material Culture). They manufactured nearly one million radio sets annually.

This Model L Atwater Kent Radio Speaker Horn would have had a cast iron base with a speaker driver, and was manufactured in Philadelphia, PA in the 1920’s.

This horn stands approximately 17” tall, has a 14” bell, a brown logo, & can swivel in its base. The base is made from salvaged walnut and finished with Betty’s Board Butter (beeswax and mineral oil).

We are thrilled Siren #95 lives in Jenkintown, PA with Mike Healy.
