This set is modeled after one of the televisions first debuted in 1939 at the New York World's Fair. Original sets of this type are extremely rare and valuable with very few in private collections. Functional, retro art deco style television set hand crafted by me using rare parts from prewar radio cabinets and electronics from solid state black and white.Television sets from the 1990's. The set has a 5 diagonal black and white screen which was typical of that time period. Nice loud speaker and all functional knobs. Knobs, cloth covered cord and decals. " tall, 20 1/2" wide and 10 1/2 deep. The set has been converted to a coaxial antenna. (6 ft coaxial cable included) and can be attached directly to your cable box, most DVD/VCR players, or a laptop using a HDMI to coaxial port adapter.
As the set is analog, a. Box would be necessary if using an aerial.
I now have HDMI to coaxial and RCA to coaxial. Available in separate listings for those interested. Original prewar television sets are extremely rare as very few were made. Even fewer families could afford one and very little programming was available. I make these sets because I have always been fascinated by the thought of television being available in the 1920's and 30's and the excitement there was of having one back then.I want to share this interest with others and give them the opportunity to bring that experience into their own homes.
