C. R. & T. C. Theater
Climax C, 1935-37
"Theater". On back: C. R. & T. C. Chicago (Climax Radio & Telev. Corp.).
It is listed by the manufacturer as a 5 tube TRF Receiver. Tubes: 25Z5, 6D6, 6C6, 43, L-55-B (ballast). Similar chassis to Lafayette AS-5. Also seen with a brass General Television label on the back.
There are several differences between this radio and the similar Westinghouse WR-100. They are both pictured on Machine Age To Jet Age Volume I, Second Edition 1998 by Mark V. Stein (2001 update edition), page 208. The dial and knobs are higher on the WR-100 and the base is cut slightly different. The Westinghouse is a 5 tube radio, no ballast, in a configuration that would not likely fit into the Climax model C case. The WR-100 has 4 tubes across the back, the Climax model C only has 3 tubes across the back.
