Emerson 511 "Moderne" (1947)
(Beetle tube table radio)

Emerson 511 "Moderne" (1947)

This is a seldom seen Emerson model 511 "Moderne" in brilliant red Beetle Plaskon with heavy bronze (sometimes referred to as gold) marbling. The hand-polished cabinet with integrated handle has no breaks, cracks or hairlines - just a few surface scratches. The set has been completely restored with all electrolytics and weak tubes replaced. Except for its replacement cord, the set is all-original and still retains its original bottom label, knobs, and crystal clear dial cover. Its dial lights up nicely in the dark by a pilot lamp inside its original white Plaskon housing. Attributed to famous industrial designer Raymond Loewy, it was introduced in the fall of 1947 at the original price of $29.95. It not only looks great, but plays loud and clear across the AM dial as well. Truly the best example of this eye-catching set I've ever owned. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 11-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D.  $895.00. (1750127)
