This extremely RARE pistachio GREEN midget Emerson was the pre-War version of the Emerson model 540 produced after WWII. This is a model #CF-255. The bakelite plaskon very fragile cases were made in brown, ivory, red and green. Very few have survived without damage. The radio operates on a two tube TRF chassis, and utilizes a resistance line cord to step down the voltage. Factory original green plaskon knobs. The case is not without flaws as are visible in the pictures. Please view my other listings as I have one of these in ebony black listed that is in pristine, excellent condition. This tiny 6-1/2″W x 5″H x 3-1/2D set is a great part of Emerson history.
