Emerson Model 411 "Mickey Mouse" Rare Original Disney Painted Version
Seldom Seen all Original 78 Year Old Disney Mickey Tube Radio in Great Condition
Beautiful early 1934 original painted version of the Emerson Model 411 Repwood "Mickey Mouse" Radio. The model 411 was 1 in a series of 4 "Mickey Mouse" novelty sets the Emerson manufactures under license from the Disney Corporation.
The 4 panels on the radio are made of Repwood or pressed wood and have hand carved and painted figures. This original and complete Mickey Mouse radio is just incredible and in wonderful condition for a 78 year old radio. The differences between this painted version + a regular Repwood model are the ivory background painted dial escutcheons and front "Mickey Mouse" metal plates and the grill cloth. In 26 years of collecting I have only been able to find two other examples of this model and would be happy to forward information upon request.
The original ivory painted cabinet and painted Mickey characters have had no touch-ups and the wear is consistent with the age of the radio. Front panel has one small hairline at the top of Mickey's instrument which can barley be seen. Radio has original knobs with some of the original ivory paint still present. The wooden back panel is original land has the Emerson brass plate still affixed with the serial #. This is a rare and incredible radio that needs to be proudly displayed in a Disney or radio collection.
Radio measures approximately: 6.75" high by 7" wide by 5" 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.
