The Predicta TV’s Space Age looks have made it a design icon of the mid-20th century. This innovative television was made by Philco from 1958 to 1960. The Predicta was available in console, tabletop and cabinet models. The TV’s modern design included a CRT that could both tilt and swivel.

Introduced in 1959, the 17-inch tabletops were the most common models. Their cabinets came in a variety of colors. These models were called the Princess and the Debutante. The Predicta Princess was available in a 17”inch or 21-inch B&W screen.

Many people collect the Predicta for its unique appearance, but from its early days was known as being a difficult television to repair. There are reproduction Predicta televisions being manufactured today with color TV screens. These are being sold under the Predicta Telstar name. Shown here is the Princess model, made to resemble the original 1959 TV.
