Not to sure how old this tv is it has 3 big oil tubes which reflect onto a mirror then on to it's large silver screen(about 100cm)

It works except sound I believe it has the wiring diagram included in the back of the unit

That would have to be very early possibly experimental TV as the next step was the cathode ray tubes as used in Oscilloscopes then the magnetically deflected Picture tubes that have been used for around 60 years.

I am wondering if it is actually some form of mirror drum type? Not much into TV. The mirror drum scanner goes back to 1907.

Likely an interesting bit of history

It is probably a rear projection TV,the three oil tubes will be the three CRT,s which are liquid cooled.
