Hello, I am a young 20-year old, who is an aficionado collector of old records and phonographs. I decided to join this forum because recently, I have started some interest about old TV sets from the 1950s.

I will talk later with you about this.

But firstly, I would like to ask about a doubt I have had during a long time. This is a capture from the 2nd or 3rd episode from "I dream of Jeannie", aired in 1965. These series have been for me a good referent about the 1950s.
Here is the TV set (at your left in the photo, below the rose-flower vase).

Do you know what TV/phono/radio combination or model is this one?

It looks like a Zenith B/W combo, from around the same era.

Welcome, Rapper, to the INSANE MADNESS that is Old TV/Radio collecting...(grin) Most TVs & radios actually shown on TV were RCAs or Zeniths, Motorolas, Philcos...Often, one of those "Big" companies would sponsor the show, & would have one of THEIR high-end consoles prominently featured in it. But rarely,if ever, were they shown "Working", as capturing a "Working" TV on TV was/is VERY difficult to do.

It's a black & white combo in a colorized episode. :P
