Emerson CF-255 "Emersonette" (1939)


Emerson CF-255 "Emersonette" (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This midget Emerson was the pre-War version of the Emerson model 540 produced after WWII. It was advertised as "The World's Best Selling Small Radio." The very fragile cases were made in brown, ivory, red and green. Few have survived without damage. The radio operates on a two tube TRF chassis, and utilizes a resistance line cord to step down the voltage. This radio has its original back (almost always gone) and its original line cord. It is playing fine utilizing its short antenna wire, but you will need to lengthen it to pick up better. I would not recommend extended listening, as the line cord heats up like all resistance cords. The case is undamaged, no cracks, chips or breaks. This tiny 6-1/2"W x 5"H x 3-1/2"D set is a great part of Emerson history. I will include a copy of the original ad for the radio from Radio Retailing.
