It's listed cl and it only caught my eye cause the list it as a Sony. Did Sony have imports in what looks to be a 50s set? I couldn't find any info or images that looked like this.

Nope someone took the tag off a new Sony from back in the 80's I would guess.
Dont know what it is but its abt a 1950 set.

Pretty sure Sony didn't exist yet when that set was made.

It is probably one.of the smaller brands like Tele-king or something.... I've probably had the sams for it by n my hands and n the last 2-4 weeks since I got another collection and had to go through and cull duplicates... I'm pretty sure I saw that folder, but in a few hundred thousand folders remembering 1 well ain't easy.

It's definitely not a Sony.

While they were founded in 1946, Sony's first TV was one of the battery powered personal portables in 1960. They didn't make console TV's until much later than that.

I do believe Stewart-Warner made that....and it's rare. Maybe not worth a lot......one is not likely to find another in as good shape as this example. Craig

"It's a Sony", ha ha, the sticker says so. I remember those stickers in various sizes on all of the Sony items I bought in the 1980s or so. I put a couple of them on devices that I built in that era.
