Postwar American Television

Dentavision

Courtesy of Bill Liers

This set was found a general store in California. The knob layout suggests that is uses a Raytheon-Belmont chassis with a 7JP4. That would date the set to 1948.

It was probably used in a dentist office for patients to watch TV while being worked on. The lever on the CRT holder is probably to tilt the tube to make the image upright to the patient.

lf you have any information on this set, please contact us.
