Vintage Emerson Catalin Tube Type AM Table Radio 520
- Source: eBay
This is a beautiful caramel & butterscotch colored Emerson model 520 AM tube type table radio. I have sold several of this model radio and this one has by far the best color swirl pattern. The colors are deep, rich & almost alive in their design. I tried to catch how great this radio is in my photo's but I just can't seem to do it justice. T are no cracks, chips, scratches or surface wear any w on the exposed surfaces, I can find. Even the bottom has far less surface wear than any I have seen. The bakelite back has the normal issue of the top corners being battered or broken. This on has been repaired so at least it is still intact. The radio plays as good as it looks. T is no hum, plenty of volume, very good tone quality & great reception all top off this beautiful collectors treasure. The knobs fit tight & have no repairs. This quality catalin is coming around more & more infrequently. Don't let your collection suffer.... Don't let this one get away.
