New price Here is a wonderful early post-war Philco Projection Television, model 48-2500. This is a one owner (before me) set, and it shows!! These were designed in 1944 and produced right after the war... The TV uses a very small 4 television tube to reflect into the mirror system, then up to the screen.This set is in outstanding condition. The only flaw I see is a tiny speck of veneer missing on the edge of the lid. This would be easily replaced and become totally unnoticeable. The rest of the cabinet is fantastic.
The screen is excellent as is the compartment for the mirror and reflector. The chassis is very clean... This was kept in a climate controlled home for its entire life.
One photo shows a slight bit of rust, which could easily be cleaned off.. There is no visible evidence of any transformer issues, etc.. But I cannot say that the unit works, and I cannot test any of the tubes.
The family says it was simply put out of service when a new set was bought in the 50's. Both do a great job and are reasonable. If you are an early TV collector, this is probably as good as you can find, condition wise. It really is sharp and clean.The item "1948 Philco 48-2500 Antique projection Television vintage mid century modern" is in sale since Monday, September 23, 2019.
