General Television/Climax "Emerald 1st Version" (1937)
General Television/Climax "Emerald 1st Version" (1937)
This is truly a highly desirable Art Deco radio in extremely rare pristine condition. Manufactured in 1937 by General Television who merged with the Climax Radio Corporation three years earlier, this radio's cabinet made of butt cut walnut veneers is clearly one of the edgiest ever made. Needless to say, this radio would make a great addition to any serious collection. Climax/General Television went all out in 1937 with this extreme Art Deco "Emerald," along with the teardrop "Diamond" and "Opal." This "Emerald" 1st version was the only one to have an oval dial with gold escutcheon. Except for the set's additional phono connector, this radio is all original. The cabinet has been refinished, the chassis has been restored, all caps and weak tubes have been replaced, even the dial marker has been hand polished and detailed. Having been completely restored inside and out, it is an excellent example of a rare radio classic that now picks up my local stations across the entire AM dial loud and clear. Ready to display and play! Another great radio from my personal smoke-free collection. About 18"W x 8-1/2"H x 9"D.  $4,200.00. (1750113)
