It there a number on the tube chart you are showing? Look all over the inside of the cabinet for a sticker that may have the model and/or serial number. Also, I can't imagine why, but it might be on the bottom of the cabinet. Just some suggestions. It might just be a 'Name' that it known by as well.  Careful handling the tubes, the number/letters come off quite easily. Does it have a transformer or does it seem to be listed as 105-115 volts ad/dc? Given the age, I suspect it has a power transformer.  Just things to note when you go looking on line.   E_V

Update: The model is the number on the tube layout, 54A16117, and was made in the 1940s according to a site I found. They also made a desk top model with the same number. Goto Google and search for 54a16117 and you will get some sites with some pictures.   Hope this helps.   E_V
