1957 General Electric

Model 17TO26

This is the General Electric version of the 1957 Hotpoint. Or should I say the Hotpoint is the alternate version of the GE since General Electric was the manufacturer of Hotpoint Appliances.

This particular set is in incredibly good condition for a 43+ year old TV!.

This set has some "Space Age" 1950's styling cues, such as the Saturn antenna tips

And how about that Rocketship on the channel selector knob!
It's rare to find an intact knob on this model as they are rather fragile, and stick out the side where they are easily damaged while being carried.
Out of the five GE sets I have using side tuning, this is the only one with an undamaged channel selector knob!
