Emerson 744B "Bandstand" (1954)
(Plaskon tube table radio)

Emerson 744B "Bandstand" (1954)

This seldom seen Emerson 744B radio in marbled chocolate with marbled beige is one of the most unusual and sought after radios of the 1950s, and definitely one of my favorite designs of all time. The cabinet is made of Plaskon with contrasting Styrene plastic grille and knobs. The set has been completely restored with all electrolytics and weak tubes replaced and is picking up all of my local stations loud and clear across the AM dial. The feet at the bottom of the radio's front panel are very fragile and are often found cracked but the feet on this example are in perfect condition. The radio retains the manufacturer's sticker affixed to the bottom, the original dial pointer and knobs. The cabinet is retains its showroom luster but does have a hairline crack on the back panel that cannot be seen when displayed on your shelf. Otherwise it is free of any cracks, chips, tube burns or repairs. This great radio would make a wonderful addition to any radio or Mid-Century collection. Another great radio from my personal, smoke-free collection. About 11"W x 9-1/4"H x 6-3/4"D.  $780.00. (1750128)
