Emerson L-141 "Cube" (1937)
(wood tube table radio w/SW/Ingraham cabinet)

Emerson L-141 "Cube" (1937)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

The Emerson Phonograph Company was formed in New York City in 1918. They started making radios in 1924, and produced the first phonograph/radio combination. By WWII, it held one sixth of the U.S. radio market. With the advent of television, their sales more than doubled by 1950. Emerson is still in business today. The L-141 is a five-tube, two-band (AM,SW-disabled) radio. We replaced all of the capacitors with Mylar equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. A safety fuse, new antenna lead, audio input cable and a new power cord were installed. The Ingraham cabinet has Burl Walnut and Walnut veneers with maple and ebony inlays. Gary stripped the cabinet, and ended up with a gorgeous "piano" lacquer finish. The original chassis, speaker and knobs are with the set. A crystal-clear dial cover from Mark Palmquist was added. This unique "cube" design was a rare radio for Emerson, but they wanted to get in on the popularity and sales of the cubes. This is one beautiful radio for any collection, and a wonderful addition to Emerson collections. 14"H x 11"W x 8"D.
