Postwar American Television
(1949 - 10 inch)
Electromatic made a 10 and 12 inch version of this set. The cabinet looks very similar to the 1945 Farnsworth prototype, and even more like the 1947 production model GV260. Another Electromatic has an almost identical cabinet, but with a Farnsworth decal on it. Electromatic also made a 12 inch version, the model 120.
It is likely that Electromatic (a New York company) bought surplus cabinets from Farnsworth's cabinet supplier and put their chassis in. But how can the Farnworth label on the other surviving Electromatic be explained? One possibility is that Farnsworth sold the set. But by then they had moved on to a completely different style. Why would they sell an outdated design, which would compete with their 1949 product line? Another possibility is that Electromatic left the Farnsworth decal on the cabinet (without Farnsworth's permission) to increase sales, since Farnsworth was a well known brand.
