Big porthole-type tv/radio/phono console. Missing knobs. The remaining knobs look like the clear Moto type but the channel escutcheon looks Admiral 7"-ish. Blew up the photo but could not read the decal. SE Penna if anyone is interested.

I'm guessing Westinghouse... will try to find a picture.

Similar to the H-231 here:

Some models had a "shutter" at the top and bottom of the screen, so they could display as a "porthole" or "double D"... Way cool!

Maybe a Westinghouse? Neat little combo. Hope it finds a good home, but at $150, I doubt it will go to a fellow collector.:sigh:

It's a Westinghouse, here's a similar one on eBay with all the knobs, I guess that makes it worth $500.
