Emerson 540A "Emersonette" (1947)
Emerson 540A "Emersonette" (1947)
Here is a 1947 "Emersonette" in an ivory Plaskon case. These cases are very fragile and as a result relatively few have survived. This set's cabinet is flawless, simply in immaculate condition with no tube burns, hairlines, cracks or chips anywhere, and it still retains its original glossy finish. The grille cloth, black bullet-style knobs, external antenna, 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. The chassis has just been restored with all weak tubes replaced, the tuner and volume controls cleaned, so it picks up all my local stations loud and clear across the AM dial. This All-American five-tube set was originally advertised as "the world's smallest AC/DC Superheterodyne" ever made. Today, the 540A is highly collectible with the red and pistachio green models in clean, undamaged condition commanding a 4-figure price tag. Ready to display and play! About 6-1/2"W x 4-3/4"H x 3-1/4"D.  $695.00. (1750111)
