Hello all,

There was a recent auction in Market Drayton that had a Televisor listed, anyone know if this was the one and if so how much did it sell for ?

Hello there,
Yes it looks identical to the one sold at Wetwood recently (radiophile auction) It sold for 3000 I think.

I think It is a bit of a pity people buy things from these
sales and then sell them on Ebay to make a profit. There appeared to be a few people buying very large quantities of radios, test equipment ect. and it is the same people each time an auction is on

Hello there,
The Baird televisor sold for 4100 in the end It sold for 3000 at Wetwood the other week. 1100 profit for holding it a few days!

If it was the same televisor in a recent auction, then the buyer had no interest in it or to appreciate its historical significance, other than to make a (possible) large profit from it. Maybe its a shame that sometimes these sort of items cant find there way directly into a collectors hands.

The Televisor has been sold to someone in France

Default Note from archivist.

This old thread, heavily pruned, has been considered worth archiving as it records the appearance of a rare survivor from the early days of television.

The ebay link in post #1 has, however, been removed as it is no longer active.
