LIFE Magazine was once the most ubiquitous item in every household, even more than televisions. So its no wonder that TV manufacturers used LIFE to win customers. This 1960 Sylvania Television Set ad is a great example of that effort. Upon order, this advertisement will be painstakingly extracted from the original edition in which it appears and carefully framed and packaged for delivery.
In the era of smartphones and gigantic, HD flat screens, its hard to imagine the days when a television was actually a large, boxy, and expensive piece of furniture that dominated the room. While the picture quality would be utterly rejected today despite the ad's claim, the advent of the wireless remote control helped create the first-ever couch potatoes!
This ad will look amazing in any home, an office, dormitory -- especially in the living room! Since the ad is the original from an authentic and rare LIFE Magazine, you can rest assured of its unique value! This is a perfect birthday, holiday, Father’s Day or Mother’s Day gift! Personalize this gift by including a certificate of authenticity with your special message.
The LIFE Magazine ad itself measures approximately 10.5″ x 13.5″ and it surrounded by a white professional framing mat cut to this ad’s specifications. The total area of the advertisement and the mat measures 15.75” x 19.7” and looks fantastic. The handsome and contemporary dark-brown frame itself is a high-quality medium-density fiberboard (MDF) with shatterproof plexiglass.
As an ad taken from an original magazine from the stated date, the ad may show signs of aging. As a collector’s item, all sales are final and returns are not accepted.
