  Lot 83
 

Bush TV 62 12in Bakelite Television

A Bush Television Type 62 Television Set, fully restored by the vendor with a Dominoe 625 - 405 line converter with a SCART lead, built and designed by Malcom Everiss,

the Bush Radio Television Reciever Type TV22's main claim to fame was that it was the first British television that could be tuned, by the owner, to any one of the two then current BBC transmitters. It was also able to tune to the further three proposed channels.

The Bush TV22 is an icon of early 1950s bakelite sets and highly desirable today, although in its day it was one of the cheapest sets available (at £35 and 10 shillings) - it was intended for those who couldn't afford a set with a ‘proper’ wooden cabinet. The post-war timber shortage was the main reason why some TV manufacturers used other materials for the cabinets.

Condition PAT test fail as there is no earth to the chassis. Powers up and works well in conjunction with the converter - will need a new SCART lead

Estimated at £200 - £300
