Emerson models CF255 ca:1939, model 540A (bottom right) ca:1947

These were advertised as the worlds smallest radios, they measure just 6.5" wide x 4.75" tall.. Although they look quite similar, looks is where it ends. The 1939 version is a 2 tube TRF radio. The 1947 model is features the standard All American 5 super-het (5 tubes) with built-in loop antenna and inductive tuning.

As for the "Emersonette" being the worlds smallest radio,  it likely was back at the time. In 1952  a competitor made one slightly smaller; the Admiral 7T03CG which measures only 6" x 4.25".
