Since I have posted this particular radio, and based on the stations identified I feel that in fact this model was produced in 1935, not later, also as i was not to sure at first what or how to add data, the valves are in fact V4 U50 full wave rectifier, V1/V2 W63 variable-mu screen pentodes and V3 KT63 Tetrode power output valve.
Thank you to the two other members who have advised me on the date as in fact 1937, not 1935
