6-valve plus magic eye tuning, bandspread mini-console radio
Note, the set came to the current collector (who has rejuvenated it back to working status) with the knobs shown, although the lower two look to have been swapped on at some point in its life - they are the special single-use wooden Columbus knobs found only on the Columbus model 62 from Radio Corp NZ in Wellington.

General Construction Notes for Wellmade Ltd:
Radios made for Johns in the 30's were often available in AC, DC or Battery. The inclusion of DC power options was because large tracts of Auckland (where Johns and Wellmade were situated) were supplied by DC power generation.
