Climax "Emerald" (Oval Dial Version)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Climax "Emerald" (Oval Dial Version)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

Here's a rare and beautiful gem indeed! A triumph of design and elegant beauty, this Emerald was nearly unrecognizable when found, the cabinet coated with house paint, the chassis scattered in many pieces. The cabinet has been professionally refinished with attention to original details. The chassis has been restored; caps replaced, tubes checked. It sports its original eye tube, still decently strong. This beauty has a few small flaws. There's slight damage on the back of the dial, which shows noticeably only when the radio is on and the dial is backlit. The original clear disc on the tuning system was destroyed; a period repair replaced it with a metal disc, so only 30% of the dial lights up (see photo.) There is also a crack in the bottom fin that is not too noticeable. The radio is much better for looks than performance. That said, it's been aligned to original specs and picks up AM and shortwave across the dial with the attached long wire antenna. I'm offering free shipping on this radio to anywhere in the continental USA. This radio will be very well-packed and insured for the full amount. If you have any questions or would like more photos, please contact me!
