Default 1941 Ford/Mercury radio

I recently purchased a 1941 radio for my 41 Mercury. How do I tell if its A Philco or a Zenith? I have some of the antenna for it. Is there a picture anywhere that shows the complete antenna assembly with a breakdown of the parts? Sorry if this is posted somewhere as I'm a newbie.

The case usually has a sticker. Sometimes it is on the radio dial. The antenna has a wire with a RCA-style plug on it that plugs into the radio chassis. Another wire coming out of the chassis goes to a inlinefuse and then to the cold side of the ign switch The antenna base should have some kind of 1/2 ball on allow for installation on the cowl. The antenna mounts on the right side of the car

Thanks for your reply. There is no sticker visible to me. Is there some other way to determine who made it?
The antenna I have mounted on the roof. I should have mentioned that. I need a picture to determine what is missing.
Somebody must know the answer to this. I would appreciate it.
