(Bakelite tube table radio)

Emerson 547-A (1947)


Emerson Phonograph Company was founded in 1915 in New York City by Victor Hugo Emerson. His first factories opened in 1920 in Chicago and Boston. It operated in obscurity until 1932, when it came out with the "Pee Wee" radio which was a great seller for the company. By the time the company entered war production, it had one-sixth of the U.S. radio production. The 547-A is a five-tube, AM only AC/DC radio. We replaced all of the capacitors, checked the resistors and tubes, replacing where needed. A new power cord and safety fuse were installed. The radio is a strong performer utilizing an internal "loop" antenna. The Ebony Bakelite case is in perfect condition with no cracks or chips. It has the original knobs and back. This radio performs with great sensitivity across the dial with good tone and plenty of volume. 9"W x 5-1/2"H x 5-1/2"D.
