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

Emerson 511 "Moderne" (1947)

Here is an all-original Emerson model 511 "Moderne" designed by famous industrial designer Raymond Loewy in the rare Pistachio Green with marbleized Bronze/Gold swirl Plaskon beetle case. The beautiful cabinet is in pristine condition with no chips, cracks, hairlines, burns or repairs. It features a cleverly integrated molded handle, original gold painted metallic grille, ivory Plaskon knobs, and manufacturers stickers on the bottom and inside of case. It lights up beautifully in the dark from the pilot light beneath its original white Plaskon cover positioned over the original plastic dial cover and red pointer. Its chassis has just been totally rebuilt, cleaned and lubed. All weak tubes have been replaced. This five-tube radio is now picking up all my local stations loud and clear across the AM dial. Simply one of the best examples of this rare set you'll likely ever encounter. About 11-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D.  $1,360.00. (1750134)
