Emerson CL-256 "Stradivarius" (1939)


Emerson CL-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 Quilted Maple and the other, which we have here, in Walnut. 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. This is really nice example of this radio and it really does perform well across the dial. 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! 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. This radio is better than when it came from the factory! 11"W x 6"H x 5-1/2"D.
