Emerson BL210 (1939)


Emerson BL210 (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Before I started the restoration on this very attractive Emerson BL 210 table radio, I thought of pinstripes as something that you found on cars. Apparently the folks at Ingraham decided to add a little touch of automotive class to the stylish cabinet they built for this little gem manufactured by Emerson in 1939. Saving the original pinstripes was a tricky business, but the cabinet came out very nice, with a gorgeous slick finish having only a few minor flaws. The back was badly stained so I gave it a coat of brown paint. A new dial glass, a full set of high testing tubes, all new capacitors and resistors as necessary. A full alignment produced a great playing little radio with surprisingly good sound from the perfect speaker. Broadcast and Police Band. Requires an external antenna. Only one of these has ever sold on radio attic, so it must be fairly uncommon. In any case, you will be hard-pressed to find a nicer one. 12"W x 8-1/2"H x 7"D.
