This Model the Emerson 744b has to be my favorite Emerson Radio made in 1954, the raised dome shaped top and large front half round dial make these Radios Unique, and very hard to find with the side feet intact, the plastic side bottom feet are most often broken off, all mine have the feet, and no cracks or chips. I think these 6 are all the color combinations for this model. These color combinations are the factory original colors, I have seen a Black body with Green grill but unsure if that was a factory original color combination. My favorite color combo is the Coral- Pink and Black model witch is the hardest to find.

    Thanks toolate2 for the compliment, I have been collecting tube Radios for about 12 years.

    Yes it was hard to get all without any cracks or missing "feet", It took me from 1999 to 2008 to get all these in this condition, by far one of the most interesting and unique Tube Radios from the 1950's.
    Thank you Steeltoad63

    Nice collection, they look in remarkable condition, so you seem to want the best the first time round. The design is so futuristic, where the future was envisioned so wonderfully, but somewhere in the future, designs like this stopped.
