The radio chassis appears to be of a different make from the two television chassis. This set may be a prototype, or may be home made. Murphy used blue chassis for their prewar sets, so it is possible this is a Murphy prototype. However, the cabinet does not look anything like any of the Murphy pre- or postwar models.

This set could date from either 1939 or just after the war. We are attempting to find if the cabinet style is more likely before or after the war.

The CRT is a Mazda CRM-121.
