Red Catalin Emerson AX-235 Radio "Little-Miracle" - Mint Example
Beautiful One Owner Red Emerson "Little-Miracle" Catalin Radio
Bright Red Catalin Art Deco Emerson AX-235 Radio "Little-Miracle". Made in 1938 by Emerson Radio + Television is Emerson's first example of a small Catalin radio that also features a unique louvered insert grill. The small size of this radio combined with the great color and contrasting trim really makes for a stunning Art Deco radio.
This highly marbleized + bright red Catalin is a one owner radio that has been meticulously taken care of and is perfect. Radio still retains the original trim, color coordinated back, dial plastic, decal + manufacturer's sticker. This is the most marbleized and original Little Miracle I have come across and this would make an incredible addition to any radio or Deco collection.
The bright red cabinet is in perfect condition with no cracks, chips, warp, tube burns or repairs. Cabinet retains the original factory gloss and the ivory tenite/plastic trim is original to the radio. Water-slide decal is original and in perfect condition. This models fragile plastic grill + knobs which are prone to deterioration are original + beautiful condition showing only a very mild warp on the grill. Water-slide decal is original + perfect as is the color coordinated cardboard back, dial plastic and power cord.
Radio measures approximately: 8.85" wide by 5.25" high by 3.75" deep. This set is sold "as-is + untested", the chassis seems complete. Set is being sold as a "non-working" vintage electronic device that should be gone over by a qualified technician prior to use.
