Emerson 540A "Emersonette" (1947)
(plastic tube table radio)

Emerson 540A "Emersonette" (1947)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

Post-War Emerson midget in a beautiful fire engine red professionally painted case. The case is in perfect cosmetic condition. No repairs were necessary as there were zero cosmetic issues. The black midget knobs are original, and the case has its original back also in perfect condition. The radio has been recapped, gone completely thru by a professional, and is playing fine, picking up all my local AM stations with an extension of antenna wire attached (included). Here is a description from a 1947 ad for the radio: "Emerson Radio Model 540. World's Smallest AC-DC Superheterodyne. Alnico 5 Permanent Magnetic Dynamic Speaker, Built-In Super Loop, Automatic Volume Control, Many Other Advance 'Big-Set' Features." This is an excellent alternative to the red Plaskon set, usually damaged and priced through the roof! About 6-1/2"W x 4-3/4"H x 3-1/4"D. For a nice story on this set, Google "Tuberadioland Emerson 540A." Shipping should run around $20 +/-
