Emerson 543 (1948)


Emerson 543 (1948)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This nicely designed Emerson AM table radio has a wraparound grille of perforated metal on an ivory Plaskon cabinet. Its only imperfection is a nearly invisible hairline crack near the metal button on the right side (see right side photo). The dial is illuminated by a bulb behind the black pointer disk, which gives a "halo"-like effect to the dial. Unlike most table radios of its day (which typically have a cardboard or Masonite back), this Emerson has a nice black Bakelite back with a molded-in Emerson logo. The carrying handle on the top is spring-loaded to hold it down when not in use. The chassis is a reliable "All American Five" (five tube) design, and has been thoroughly restored with all new capacitors, strong tubes, a faulty tube socket replaced, a new dial cord, a full alignment, and a new polarized power cord (with the power switch circuitry rewired to take advantage of the improved safety afforded by a polarized cord). The radio performs like new, with good sensitivity and sound quality. 11-1/4"W x 7-3/4"H x 5-1/2"D.
