Aria Tombstone identification

I'm trying to identify a small wood Aria tombstone radio.  Standard 5
tube line up with 80, 42, 75, etc.

No labels or anything on the chassis but there is a label inside of
the cabinet with a printed "Model No." but the model is handwritten,
20A100-AA.  The only other usefull information is that is was built in
Plant "B".

Can anyone provide any information about this radio.  Could this be a
store brand?

Thanks

Could this have been made by Detrola?

According to Ghirardi's "Radio Troubleshooter's Handbook", Aria was a
private brand sold by Allied stores (not to be confused with Allied
Radio, a separate entity). Their main office was located at 1440
Broadway, New York, NY.

I'm not sure who actually made sets for them...

  The Aria I have is based on a Detrola chassis/speaker.
