    Museum's Description
    • This is an example of what televisions looked like in the 1950s. They were much smaller than the TVs we have in our living rooms and was pre-tuned to receive only one channel.

      The set was made of Bakelite, an early type of plastic. It was considered to be very fashionable at the time. This television is made in an Art Deco design, a popular art movement in the 1920s/30s.
