Emerson AX-212 "Bulls-Eye" Art Deco Sakhnoffsky Designed Radio
Beautiful Maple Veneer on this Ingraham Cabinet
The impressive design of this 1939 Emerson makes it the most Machine Age Ingraham cabinet made. The design with it's incredible protruding "Bullseye" and curved cabinet styling is attributed to designer Alexis de Sakhnoffsky who was responsible for the design of the incredible "Mae West".
This Art Deco model with its beautiful golden maple veneer is highlighted with bright green plastic inlays that wrap around the sides and top of the curved wood formed case.
The radio has been professionally cosmetically restored back to its original beauty. No color was added to the lacquer, only a sheer lustre was applied and the black accents were re-painted. The radio was a very clean example prior to restoration, and it had no missing or chipped veneers or the wrap around plastic inlays. The richness of the all original veneers used by Ingraham have a remarkable of depth of color that is just stunning.
The radio still retains its original metal Ingraham tag on the bottom and it's original jet black Bakelite knobs. The gold painted metal dial is original and in great condition with only a small signs of age. Radio has the original dial plastic which is in great condition with no haziness and only a little yellowing. This radio is rarely seen.
This small radio measures approximately: 9.5" Wide by 5.5" High by 4" Deep. The chassis of this radio seems complete. This set is sold "as-is + untested" and as a "non-working" vintage electronic device that should be gone over by a qualified technician.
