The Kolster-Brandes console 405-line tv receiver was at the 'posh' end of the market. Our example is dated 1953 (bought for the Coronation Broadcast). This 15-inch set is not in original working condition. It has been 'implanted' with a modern monitor (monochrome or colour). The monitor fits exactly the original screen mask so there is no tell-tale modern screen 'squaring' of the edges (a common fault). Also, note that although monochrome tv sets look to the naked eye, 'black & white', they in fact have a 'blue' cast due to the screen's phosphor. This blueness is apparent when re-photographed by a film or tv camera.The larger image shows the KB 'dressed' for a recent production.
