Emerson 811 (1955)

Posted is a very nice and hard to find 1955 Emerson Model 811. All capacitors have been replaced and it receives all local stations here in the Metro Boston area loud and clear. No cracks or chips, with original back and bottom label. Very nice mid-century styling in this palm-size set. Grey/blue in color with burgundy frequency numbers. $79.00. (1240051)


Peony 942 (China)

Peony 942 (China)

So, the story goes... In my travels abroad I try to pick up a radio of interest in each country I go to. In this case, I went to Beijing, China in April 1989. I left an exhibition hall to take a walk and was quickly followed by two heavily armed soldiers with AK's. I waved and kept on my walk finding a radio/electronics shop. Once inside, I was immediately attracted to the Peony 942 nine-transistor portable. What attracted me most was the style and design very reminiscent of an American radio from the early 60's. I purchased it and a few days later was told to leave the country ASAP due to the impending Tienanmen Square massacre. Anyway, this set has been in the box since new. Original plastic wrap, instruction, etc. It works Beautifully and has big sound. Made by the "Peking Radio Factory." It is in perfect, new condition. Make this set yours and you will probably be the only collector in the country with one. No armed soldiers to worry about either! $200.00. (1240056)

 Restoration philosophy

My restoration philosophy has been to leave these classic radios in their original condition as much as possible.  I prefer not to refinish or repaint a set unless it's absolutely necessary.  When this is necessary, I use a professional person for refinishing & repainting.  I have always tried to obtain the nicest original sets and although some may not be working, they will be a clean platform in which to begin a solid restoration.  Radios will be listed as working originals, working electrically restored or non working originals, "as is."  Any repairs that have been made, and any cosmetic flaws associated with the radio, are completely disclosed.  I have been collecting radios since getting out of college in 1986.  I have a fairly vast collection spanning all eras of radio evolution.  Please contact me for any "wants" that you may have; I may have it!  Thank you.

Warranty information

All radios are tested to make sure they are playing prior to shipping.  A lot of jostling in shipping can make tubes loose and connections become unconnected.  These are some of the unforeseen results associated with shipping.  I have no control over how the shipper treats the package.  If you purchase a radio and it is not working and playing when you receive it, I will offer several suggestions to help it work.  If those suggestions don't solve the problem, you are welcome to ship it back to me for any repairs that are necessary.  The radio will be shipped back to you at my expense, or your purchase price will be completely refunded if the set can't be repaired.

Conditions for return

I want you happy with any radio you purchase from me.  If for any reason, you are not satisfied with the radio you bought in the condition stated in the original ad, please contact me within three (3) working days to begin discussing any issues you have.


I pride myself as a "quality" packer and realize the importance of delivering the radio to the customer without damage. We probably all experienced the eBay radio purchase where upon opening a single flimsy box with marginal to no packing material and find a broken radio we couldn't wait for.
