Emerson CJ217 "Little Miracle" (1939)


Emerson CJ217 "Little Miracle" (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
An improved version of the more common AX-217, the CJ217 is almost as rare as frog hair. Emerson eliminated the dangerous "curtain burner" power cord and equipped the CJ version with 12V tubes to match the filament string with the line voltage. Given the size of components in 1939, this radio really is a "little miracle" and cuter than a baby kitten. The veneers on the Ingraham cabinet are very eye-catching. The finish is slick and gorgeous. This one was a victim of an amateur restoration. The veneer was sanded through in a couple of places, and the lower right corner was damaged. I couldn't find matching veneers so I could not fix the problems. The speaker had a couple of small tears which I've done a very good repair on. Reproduction back. A full set of high testing tubes, all new capacitors and almost all new resistors. If you're an Emerson collector I'm willing to bet you don't have one of these. Despite its shortcomings, all in all an excellent little radio. 9"W x 6"H x 3-1/2"D.
