This is the most fabulous mid-century item we have ever come across! Bring on your mod, Jensen space helment, space age groove!

First introduced in 1970, this model is from the early 1970's.

The design of the videosphere is said to have been inspired by the film '2001: A Space Odyssey' though the videosphere's shape in itself, remains as one of the most iconic examples of the early 1970's design ethos.

A red model like this one appear as a background prop in the film sci-fi film The Matrix.


It is from an estate, and is in working order, although will need adapting for the 21st century digital age.

Here's the skinny:
Made by JVC, this awesome cherry red television is a round orb, which sits in a square stand. The orb is 13" in diameter, and the stand is 2.75" high and 7" square. It is VHF/UHF compatible. The screen is shaped like a fish eye lens.



It has a metal chain on the top, should you wish to hang the orb, as one would a chandelier. The metal reception antena is broken. This might be a moot point, since it needs digital adaptation.

It is marked "manufactured at Yokohama plant, Victor Company of Japan, Ltd. The serial number is #10301461.

Bonus: it coordinates with the cherry red Bang and Olufsen telephone we have in the shop as well!
