Emerson 540A "Emersonette" (1947)
Emerson 540A "Emersonette" (1947)
NEW!Here is a 1947 "Emersonette" in an extremely rare pistachio green Plaskon case. These cases are very fragile and as a result relatively few have survived. The only flaw to its Plaskon (not painted) case are the two small lacquer burns on its top (the largest of which is 3/8" wide) and one on its front grille, all of which most likely happened in the original molding process. Otherwise the cabinet is in immaculate condition with no hairlines, cracks or chips anywhere, and it still retains its original glossy finish. The grille cloth, black bullet-style knobs, electrical cord and plug, dial, dial glass and almost-perfect back panel that bows out to accommodate a loop antenna are original to the set. The dial lights up beautifully in the dark. All electrolytics and weak tubes have been replaced and a NOS I.F. can installed so it picks up all my local stations loud and clear across the AM dial. This All-American five-tube set is the smallest AC/DC Superhet ever made. Today, the 540A is highly collectible and the red and pistachio green ones in clean, undamaged condition can command a price that runs into four figures. Ready to display and play! About 6-1/2"W x 4-3/4"H x 3-1/4"D.   $895.00. (1750098)
