Ford Radio Company in Providence, RI. This is a very small company. Rhode Island Radio Fans Handbook from 1925 lists it as making Ford Tube Sets and Mounted Crystals. This example is a one tube set. I can not see many of these surviving as the case is literally made of paper with a faux leather covering.

The address on the front of the example below is 4 Flint Street in Providence. In 1924, about the time this radio was produced, the Providence directory lists "Commercial Garage" at that address. That may be the reason the radio model is called a Ford. 1. The name involved with the garage is William H Aspinall who is listed as a mechanic, born in October 12th, 1897 2 The 1930 census lists William as being married to Florence A and having 3 children, Helen F, George A and Mildred E. 3
