1938 Emerson Ingraham Art Deco Vintage Ax-212 Bullseye Wood Antique Tube Radio
VINTAGE 1938 EMERSON INGRAHAM BULLSEYE RADIO. Art Deco Antique Tube Radio. Excellent Condition with a beautiful walnut Ingraham wood cabinet!
This radio makes a stunning display and is highly sought after by Collectors. The Emerson Model AX-212, "Little Miracle, " has a wooden cabinet that Emerson said, "issued in a new type of styling, " and that came either in a walnut veneer or in a curly maple veneer. This cabinet has a walnut veneer and four distinctive green inlaid stripes across the top and sides of the cabinet. The Ingraham Company, a prominent Connecticut clock-making firm, designed this unusual cabinet for Emerson for its Model AX-212. This company had developed an outstanding capability for making plywood cabinets in complex shapes. Emerson described this process relating to their radios as "Stay-Bent" cabinet construction. This model uses either metal or GT glass tubes.
The metal tubes used are one each of the following: 6A8 oscillator, 6K7 IF amplifier, 6Q7 detector, AVC and amplifier, 25L6 beam power output and 25Z6 half wave rectifier. The chassis and tubes can be seen in Figure 4. The IF is 455 Kc.
And the radio will tune one band -- the broadcast band from 540 to 1730 KC. A resistive line cord is also used. The original cord has been cut and the electronics should be updated if you plan on using the radio. Also, there is a small pinhole in the clear plastic dial bezel lens.
It's hard to see, but it is there. (reproduction lenses are readily available). Otherwise, a stunning Emerson Bullseye Radio with very few issues.
