2 VINTAGE EMERSON "EMERSONETTE" 540A BAKELITE BROWN TUBE RADIOS

These great pieces come from an estate sale. The previous owner was an experienced collector who is simply down sizing his collection. This auction is for (2) Emerson 540A Bakelite radios. One of the radios is in overall good cosmetic shape with minor scuffing. It has a small piece chipped off the back left side. The back side the radio is in good shape with minor scuffing as well. You can see condition in photos below. Everything on radio shown on the left is in tact other than the small chip. The second radio is in need of a little TLC. It is missing one knob and is cracked from front to back on the top left side; also with a small chipped piece missing in the back top left. Overall the piece is in fair shape, and is for sure worth a collectors time! If anything, it can be used for extra parts if necessary. If you have any questions about the pieces, please let us know at any time!
