MODEL 3410

The Philco "Princess", 1959

This 17" Predicta in a perforated and finned metal cabinet is particularly compact and light in weight. A similar model called the "Siesta" was available with a clock above the tuner that could turn the set on and then off automatically for the duration of that favourite program. The 17" "Princess", "Siesta" and "Debutante" Predictas came in a variety of "dramatic" colours. 17" Predictas like this one were originally priced at about $280 U.S.
