1959 Sylvania Model 21C529B - Halo Light Television
US manufacturers were experimenting with all kinds of 'options, features and designs' in the late 1950s. One unusual feature offered by Sylvania was their "Halo Light" Black & White television, which had a fluorescent light that surrounded the picture tube. This could be switched on and off at the owner's discretion.
