WTB: 1950s/60s Wooden cabinet floor console with BIG knobs!
 
Hey everyone,

I work for an independent production company making a TV show set in the 1960s. We are looking for a TV to use as a prop, preferably working. My boss saw this Emerson TV and fell in love:

He has also expressed interested in this style:

If anyone can point me in the direction of something similar or has something to offer that is unique, I would be greatly appreciative. We are very flexible on the price.

Well, I've got these two sets. The one on the left is a 1957 Zenith, on the right is about a 1954 Sylvania Halolight, it has double doors.

The on-screen pics are much better than the pictures show, it was just hard to get the right angle :)

Much appreciated! I like them, my boss still wants to hold out for something closer to the ones I posted. I'll let you know if anything changes. Thanks again.

The bottom one is likely a German set. The knobs look identical to those on a Grundig HiFi console I used to own. If it is German then it would be EXTREMELY rare here in the USA. The Germans imported a rather miniscule number of TVs (despite importing tons of table radios and HiFi consoles). To give you an idea of how rare German TVs are in the states I see them for sale less often then some rare early post-war TVs, and half the time they are German market sets (which are built to use different signal and power standards) that were brought back to the states by soldiers stationed in Germany, immigrants, etc. instead of USA market import models.

A tineye search shows the picture of the second set came from eBay Ireland, so you are correct, not likely going to find one of those Euro sets over here.
