Emerson 28 (1934)

Emerson 28 (1934)
By the mid 30s these Emerson guys were building some really nice radios, of which this model 28 is a very good example. The front is beautifully ornate, and the top is sensuously curved, fairly unique in a tombstone package. The finish on this one was fairly nice, so I prettied it up a little and over coated it with twelve coats of nitrocellulose lacquer, giving it a slick glossy finish. It isn't perfect, but I think it is very attractive. A good set of tubes, new capacitors and resistors as necessary. Full alignment. The original dial is a little grungy, but doesn't look too bad when illuminated. I had to make two of the knobs. I removed the awful front end volume control and replaced it with much better amplifier stage volume control. I am still struggling with photography. This radio looks much nicer in person than in my pictures, and it plays beautifully. It is a gorgeous set that I am sure you will be proud to own. 17"H x 12"W x 8"D.  $295.00. (1680025)
