Emerson CH-256 "Stradivarius" (1939)


Emerson CH-256 "Stradivarius" (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Perhaps one of the most beautiful and identifiable Ingraham cabinets is the violin-shaped "Stradivarius" manufactured in 1939 for Emerson. There were two versions: one in Walnut and the other, which we have here, the very rare Quilted Maple. The "Strad" is a five-tube, AM only, AC/DC radio. It's all about the cabinet folks, but this radio performs very well too. All of the capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. A new power cord, safety fuse and antenna lead were added. I can't say enough about the Gary Marvin refinish on this radio! If you're lucky enough to own a radio refinished by this master, consider yourself lucky! This is one of the best examples of this radio you will ever find. The original knobs, speaker and chassis are with the set. The dial cover is crystal-clear, and we installed a reproduction back. The Ingraham and Emerson badging is in place. All the boxes are checked with this radio. You don't see the Maple version very often, and in this condition...never! 11"W x 6"H x 5-1/2"D.
