Marconiphone Model 709 television receiver with a 9-inch screen. It was made by Marconi in about 1938, when it sold for 45 guineas. This is one of only four surviving examples of this television in the world. It was known as a 'console' receiver, which meant that it was a self-contained floorstanding model. It also contained a 3-band radio that could receive worldwide broadcasts. The manufacturers advertised this set as being 'a very attractive model of the latest design and of convenient dimensions for most houses'.
