Emerson AM-169 w/Ingraham Cabinet (1937)

Listed price on date of sale - $295.00
The Ingraham company did a beautiful job on the cabinet for this Emerson AM/SW table radio. The complex curved shape and curved louvers in the grille evoke the imagery of a fine handcrafted musical instrument like a violin or guitar. The veneers they chose are special as well, with a beautiful curtain figure walnut veneer top. The red inlay stripes at the bottom of the cabinet are uniquely attractive. It also has a fully finished wooden back. The radio has been fully restored and plays perfectly, with all new capacitors, a strong set of tubes, a full RF and IF alignment, and a new polarized power cord. This radio also got a badly needed safety upgrade, seeing as how it was a hot chassis design with the chassis exposed to fingers on the rear. It has been fully rewired with a much safer floating ground. I've also added Zener diodes across the dial lamp to extend its life (short bulb life was another shortcoming of the original design). Front knobs are volume, tone, and tuning; rear knob is bandswitch. 14"W x 9-1/2"H x 8-1/2"D.
