Snow White Radios

I recently ran across Phil's Old Radios - a website dedicated to antique radios.  In the late 30's Emerson created several radios featuring Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  Bellow is a page from my favorite price guide Offical Price Guide to Disney Collectibles by Ted Hake:

The radio is a beautiful piece and would certainly be a top collectable to have...and I know nothing about verifying or authenticating something like this.  That is why Phil's Old Radios is so helpful.  Phil has a whole article on this Emerson radio.  The Disney price guide values this quite high ($825-$3250) so when looking at one it would be important to know what you are looking out.  I found the article very helpful in understanding a bit more about this fantastic piece.

In addition, Emerson made a second radio that Phil has taken the time to restore.  Again, it is a lovely piece and the process of restoration is a fascinating one.  I love the acorn radio dials on this one.  Check it out!
