Sears Color

Just picked this up from a friend of mine. He has had it for several years and completed the internal restoration on it. He decided to let it go and I was given first dibs on it. It is still in the back of my Durango. I'll have to take more pictures once I get it out and hooked up. The knobs on the front are not original. When my friend got it, it was missing one, but had the other one there. He replaced the one to a matching set. The one original is still with the set, just not on the front.

I'm not sure. The pictures were taken by my friend at his house, before I picked the set up.

The first roundy I owned for more than 30 min (Had to get one at the ETF and bought more than I could carry) was a Metal cabinet Silvertone roundy. I still have it, and another later model again in a metal cabinet found me recently.

Funny part on that table set is that I had gutted the stereo portion of a Silvertone roundy combo (TV portion was long gone) ~8 months before getting the first table set...Had I known I'd find the table set I'd have grabbed the whole combo and repopulated it's TV section...

Very nice and interesting. The only Sears roundie I've seen was a CTC11 clone I had once. Cabinet similar and probably same speaker(s) but no doors.

Is that one an RCA chassis or Warwick-built clone?

I know it is a bit difficult to tell, but that on the top right of the cabinet is the screen part of a Predicta Tandem.

Love the set, and your friend has excellent taste. I spy a Jefferson "Magic" clock on top of the TV.

I have seen that clock referred to as a Golden Hour. They are rather collectible.
