The Companion Salisbury was manufactured for Johns Ltd by Wellmade Ltd in 1936, it was in production for 2 years.

This is the entry-level cabinet for the 1935-36 period, and is only listed as being available with the basic 5-valve broadcast battery set (Altona 5).  It's similar in appearance to the Oxford cabinet, although much more basic.

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.
