Notes The Philco 144 series was a follow-on to the model 44 series of all-wave radios. The model 144 chassis has six tubes and covers BC to 23 MHz in four bands. It has a shadow meter (tuning aid) and a four position tone control. The standard 144 chassis was designed for 115 VAC 50-60 Hz, and the 144E export version (code 125) of the chassis was designed for 230 VAC 50-60 Hz.

There are six individual models in the series with different cabinet styles. The early version (1934) of the 144B table radio is a cathedral with scalloped top. The late version (1935) of 144B is a shouldered tombstone having a lyre-shaped speaker opening with three vertical bars through the center of the opening.

Model 144H (1934-35) is a highboy with six legs and a Y-shaped speaker opening with vertical bars. Model 144D (1934) is a similar highboy design with doors.

The early version (1934) of the 144X floor-type console has a classical design, with three round pillars in front of the inclined sounding board. The late version (1934-35) of 144X has a somewhat more modern design with three square fluted pillars in front of the speaker and an emblem at the top center of the cabinet.
