Emerson 350AW (1933)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

This little Emerson 350AW just dropped my jaw. It's like the Emerson guys took their most simple, basic five-tube chassis down to the Ingraham guys and said: "Make a cabinet for this. Spare no expense!" I have never seen a more ornate and attractive cabinet on any radio at any price. Barrel and bead trim, scroll work trim around the top. Carved, solid wood doors. Gorgeous veneers, with the top booked four ways. Turned pillars on every corner. I was able to save the unobtainium bronze grille cloth, with a few minor flaws. It even has a 3/8" thick wood back cover, where any other five-tuber would have Masonite, or nothing at all. It is absolutely a priceless jewel of a cabinet. I gave it 18 coats of gloss lacquer with three sanding operations. A trifle of grain still showing here and there, and a few dings remain. I replaced all the capacitors and resistors and gave it five tubes that all test new. Performance is commensurate with a little five-tuber. The SW band only covers 1.6 to 3 MHz. The knobs and one piece of the barrel and bead trim are accurate reproductions by my genius nephew Tyson. The chassis has no AVC, and the early 30s antenna volume control. Requires an external antenna. This sparkling little diamond is as rare as it is beautiful. None has ever sold on the Attic. I found one closed auction on eBay for $488. I won't be quite that greedy, but this is a unique and stunning little piece of radio Americana.
