The first mention of Royal Radio Corporation, the producer of Polle Royal Radios, was in 1925 in the Providence Directory 2. Address was 19 Calender, 6th FL. This listing continued in 1926 3 then in 1927 4 and 1928 5 we see the addition of Louis Potemkin as President and Treasurer.


Providence Journal
February 20, 1926


In 1927, an Injuction is sought against Royal Radio and Potemkin by Radio Corporation of America, General Electric Company and Westinghouse Electic and Manufacturing Company. This injunction restrained the Royal from using 11 patents in their manufacturing. 7

We see the last mention of Royal Radio and Mr Potemkin in 1931 6


United States Patent Office
1926


Ned Connors, local historian and preservation consultant, who works with the Rhode Island Historical Society, found this in the Rhode Island State Archives:

Royal Radio Corporation
Principals Spencer Over, Harry Ormiston and Ethel B. Love
Chartered on January 13th, 1926
Capitalized at $60,000
Trademark for Radio Receiving Sets and Radio Parts Granted April 20th 1926
Amended in 1929 with a name change to Polle Royal Machine and Novelty Company.

In 1931 listings we see the name switch to the Polle Royal Machine and Novelty Company which goes along with what Ned found. It also switched address to 15 Calender, 1st fl 6.

I have actually found one of their novilities and it actually looks radio related. This is a cigar lighter that looks like a microphone. It was solid brass 3" x 2" and could be used to light a cigar or cigarette. It plugged into 110volt AC or DC plug and you pressed the black buttom while touching the cigarette to the coil unit which became instantly hot. The directions list it as being Manufactured by Polle Royal Machine & Novelty Company Providence, RI.
