PHILCO PREDICTA Mid-Century Modern - Jetsons Style TV - Siesta Model Television
Tap image to advance
Here we have a 1959 Philco Predicta TV. This Mid-Century Modern marvel is truly Jetsons Style. This is the rare Siesta model that features a clock with a timer above the television controls. It is complete with all the knobs, antenna, the original back, and AC cord. The cord is in good condition, so I turned it on using our Variac to bring the power up slowly and I was pleased to see it powers up and has a nice bright picture tube and gave me some normal static. Beyond that it is untested. I have not tried to connect it to any signal source. The condition is excellent with the two exceptions being a minor crack near the top on the left side of the housing for the crt and two cracks in the plastic behind the main controls (see pictures). Due to the nature of vintage electronics, I cannot offer a guarantee or warranty and there are no returns. It will be thoughtfully packed to ensure safe delivery. It is being sold as is, for use as is, as a prop, and for general collectability. Please scroll down to view all the pictures and feel free to ask questions.
