Emerson R158 (1937)


Emerson R158 (1937)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
It's been my observation over the years that Emerson has the most Ingraham cabinet designs than any other make of radio. No two are alike, a signature of that company's ability in wood cabinet design. They are defined by curves and angles, altered symmetry and exquisite veneers. In this cabinet, Rosewood is used with a vertical grain flow. The Emerson R158 is one of the Ingrahams that is a more straightforward waterfall design, using two brass rails that run from the back of the radio to the front. This five-tube, two-band radio (SB, Police) has had all the capacitors replaced, resistors and tubes checked and replaced where needed. I installed a new dial and grille cloth, and the original knobs are back on this gorgeous radio. An alignment was performed, and the radio has good sensitivity across the dial. Gary did his usual mastery stripping and painting the cabinet, then applied the coats of catalytic lacquer in his temperature-controlled spraying room. This radio would grace any collection, especially for you Emerson collectors looking for the hard-to-find model.
