Emerson Model 17 "Miracle Six"

Emerson Model 19 Radio

This is an Emerson Model 17 introduced in late 1934 at a list price of $25.00.  It was called the "Miracle Six" by Emerson on the basis of its four tubes giving "six tube performance".  The styling is pure Art Deco, and it features a black Bakelite cabinet with chrome accents.  It was also available in brown Bakelite without the chrome trim (as the model 19).  This radio is exceedingly hard to find and is sought by radio and Art Deco collectors alike.
