1950-1959 American Television, Inc. - USA 

American Television, Inc., was founded by Ulises A. Sanabria.  This company produced both DeForest and deForest-Sanabria televisions in the 1950s.

A few examples of advertising for American Television and a deForest-Sanabria set which mentions American Television, are shown below.  Also refer to DeForest-Sanabria section of this site.

Only five television sets are known to exist at this time, I would appreciate hearing from other owners, or from anyone with additional information.
