Curtis Mathes rescued from Harvey
« on: September 02, 2017, 09:34:28 PM »
Someone wanted to get rid of all his furniture here in Houston, even that which suffered little or no damage from Harvey.  One item was a 73" Curtis Mathes 1959 tube console.  I could not bear to see it taken to a landfill; so with tears in my eyes I gathered it up and brought it home.  It's lovely, and extremely heavy.  The only problem:  My better half is in Europe and I had already told her the sixth console was our last (and I said the same when we got our fifth and our fourth)... so I'm thinking up a beautiful speech to make to her. The feet got wet and that appears to be about the only damage; he took the tubes out as the water came in the house.

Great rescue from the flood.  It appears to be in nice shape too.

Wow I would have jumped on that in a heartbeat. It looks like if it was flooded that it only got the legs.
