d/b/a Peertron Radio Tubes, New York, New York, USA

d/b/a Artee Radio Co., 16 Hudson Street, New York, NY, USA [2]


First seen: 15-Dec-1925
Last seen: 15-Dec-1925

Brand(s): Peertron

Peertron radio tubes did very little advertising, and perhaps had small production runs. Only one newspaper reference has been found, Miracle stores selling them for Christmas of 1925. The timing suggests they started with tipless bakelite (UX) tubes.


Peertron > Artee Radio > National Airphone

I have been unable to locate the source of Tyne's attribution of Peertron tubes to Artee Radio Co. However, we can assume that one exists, which allows us to back-trace the address in New York City. This particular address on Hudson Street can be traced to the National Airphone Company, a long running company who made a run to expand their sets past the Monodyne, but doesnt look to have been as successful. They vanish by mid 1925.

National Airphone registers their trademark #188636, on 19-Feb-1924, for 'Monodyne' radios and parts.
