This is part of my Emerson 1950's Tube Radio Collection, this Model the 826-b from 1955 is just dripping with the 1950's!! The Cherry Red Model was my Grandmothers, I am assuming she purchaced it because her favorite Color was Red.........Du!
This Radio sat on my Granmothers Kitchen counter top, and as a Child I was very intrigued by this Radio looking up at it as it sat next to the Toaster. So I had to get all colors of this Model, with the exception of the Cerulean Blue Model, a almost imposible to find color.
The Emerson 826-b is made of Plakston and Lucite, I love the unique design of the Lucite large front center clock face, the pedestal base is also made of clear Lucite. With 3 front knobs and two side knobs. The Model 826-b has the 3 front knobs and the Model 826-d ( I have the Pink and Grey colors) have two knobs on the front.

    Did you ever find the blue one?
  8. jenfossils, 2 years ago
    I got a whitish one. I would have loved a red or blue one!

    Never found the Blue one, I had the opportunity back around 1999 to get one but lost in bidding, still searching.

    The large dial in front is yellow. Is there a way to clean it?
  11. Radio-Tony Radio-Tony, 2 years ago
    The Large Dial is made of Lucite, clean it with hot soapy water and a clean non abrasive cloth, so not use Windex or other household cleaners, I also suggest getting some Novus Plastic Cleaner/Polish
