Hi all,

Is anybody able to identify the TV in the picture or at least some info about it ?
and is the thing on the left an additional speaker ?

Sorry for the low picture resolution.

That's a tough one, the image quality isn't great.

My guess - If it's Australian, an Astor or a Healing, from mid to late 60s. It looks like it has memory preset fine tuning.
It has a style used by both manufacturers.

Yes the cabinet contains a bigger speaker.

Oh - I assume the russian babes have nothing to do with you??

Stay well, mate! You are in a scary place at the moment!

I cannot remember the date but a long time ago now, one of our members put up an interesting thread on Astor televisions, posting photos of almost every model. I think this was done by TV Collector but which forum this thread is on escapes me. If I get a chance later tonight I will try and find it.

For US stuff the guys here are guaranteed to find it. This kind of question comes up regularly

Stay well!
