Iconic Bush television from the early 1950s. This Bakelite TV was the standard for the time and sold in numbers for the coronation of Elizabeth II. This is the earlier and rarer TV12B model which may date to the late 1940s.

The TV is untested and sold as a display piece, without warranty. It may or may not work, there is no power lead. The Bakelite is in great condition – no cracks, breaks or damage. All the original knobs and dials are there and unbroken. The tube surround is discoloured under the glass.

Please see photos as these form part of the description. If you need more pictures or further information please ask.
