About this item

First manufactured by Murphy in the 1960s, you'd be lucky if there were just a handful of television sets per street back in those days.

While it probably took an age to warm up, you can bet the whole family excitedly gathered around this big brute to watch 'In The News' and 'Animal, Vegetable, Mineral?' in all of their black and white glory.

The nicest things about these old television sets is wondering which major world events were watched on them? How many people were in awe at seeing Neil Armstrong walk on the moon, did someone witness the tragic news of the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King Jr, how many household objects were thrown in rage at Margaret Thatcher? I guess we'll never know but romantically thinking about it all is definitely part of its appeal.

With a beautiful design and handy plastic tambour doors to keep the dust off the screen and everything looking neat and tidy, this TV set is sure to be the focal point in any room or setting.

We're not sure if it works or not as it has an old two pin plug attached, as a result we're selling with the intention of it being used as a prop, side table or a great and unusual decor piece.

Measuring approximately 81cm tall, 74cm wide and 38cm deep.

As is to be expected of an item of this age, there are scuffs, scrapes, marks and chips all over.
