1935 D. S. Loewe TV

This is an example of the 1935 D. S. Loewe German cathode-ray electronic television, being operated at home.  It is generally agreed among collectors and historians that the total production of German pre-war television sets, for all makes and models, from 1933 to 1940, did not exceed 1600 units.  Perhaps a dozen, and no more, survive to this day.
