Emerson 511 "Moderne" (1947)
Sold by David Spivey on April 23, 2011
Listed price on date of sale - $109.00
Emerson from 1946/47 in beautiful ivory Plaskon. This radio design is attributed to famous industrial designer Raymond Loewy, who also designed the Studebaker automobile. The radio is the sister set of the Emerson 517. This radio came in about five variations. This Plaskon case is near mint, with just that tiny ever present tight hairline on the left edge near the grille, very common on this radio. About 99% of these sets have that mark. The gold mesh grille is excellent, and the dial cover is clear & not warped. The chassis has been checked, and the radio is playing well, picking up all my local stations with no annoying filter hum. The dial light flows down from the top of the dial in a warm glow that lights up the dial. An excellent example of a radio designed by one of America's great designers. About 11"W x 7-1/2"H x 6"D.
