Emerson 511 "Moderne" (1947)
(Beetle tube table radio)
Emerson 511 "Moderne" (1947)
Here is a seldom seen Emerson model 511 "Moderne" glossy ivory Beetle Plaskon with bronze/gold marbling swirls. The clear plastic bubble dial cover floats over the gold painted metallic grille, which covers much of the front. A block of ivory Plaskon, whose back has a recess for the pilot light, anchors the dial cover to the cabinet at its top. When you turn on the radio, the illuminated block sheds a soft light over the dial, a beautiful effect. Radio has a cleverly designed molded handle on the top that also served to ventilate the set, as this set is closed on all sides and is designed to be viewed from all angles. The beautiful marbleized Beetle Plaskon cabinet is in great original condition, with no chips, major cracks, burns or repairs. The cabinet has only a slight stress crack in the dark swirls between the two original Plaskon knobs (have to look hard to find). The set retains its original metal bottom. Elevated padded feet + two factory labels. It not only looks great, but plays loud and clear across the AM dial as well. Truly an eye-catching addition to any radio collection. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 11-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D.  $429.00. (1640228)
