The receiver (acquired at a garage sale) is housed in a wooden cabinet and covers three bands.
Tubes employed: 6A7, 6K7GT, 75, 6F6G, 6C5G and 84.
Silvertone radios are also referred to as Sears-Roebuck radios.

Unfortunately, the model identification on the back of my radio is not readable.
Several Silvertone models have the abovementioned tube set: models 1904, 1904A, 1906, 1908, 1911, 1914, 1938, 1954, 1964, 1964A and 1984. However, several of these models have a different cabinet than my radio (judging from pictures from various sources, like books and the internet). For this reason I have to drop models 1904, 1906, 1908, 1911, 1914, 1938 and 1984. Consequently models 1904A, 1954, 1964 and 1964A are left. 

The webmaster of the Silvertone Gallery at confirmed me that I own model 1954.

I was kindly notified that the knobs at my radio are not the original ones. In the meantime, however,  I found two small original wooden knobs for the lower row in a store in San Diego.  Now I am searching for two somewhat larger knobs for the upper row.
