1950s & 60s Vintage Retro Television Sets- authentic period cabinets with updated internals. These are not mass-produced sets, they are individual, one-off, and each entirely unique.

While turned off, the set looks just as it did in on the showroom floor. We scour the country to find good original sets in mint or as near mint condition as possible; as mid-century modern aficionados, we favor authenticity and not to restore when not necessary.

WHAT GOES INTO A MASTERWORK SERIES COLORSET?

Original electronics are completely replaced, and all chassis and components come with an industry standard 1 year warranty. Our aim is to make sets seamless, and not “something close.” As every set is different, so does every conversion require a new and unique approach toward engineering in order to make it just right.

 

 Original Masterwork Series sets employ color CRTs in all cabinets capable of accommodating them. As of 2019, all 20″ to 24″ Masterwork series sets are built on commercial grade electronics, which include a Philips chassis and a Samsung CRT originally manufactured for use by the hospitality industry. Our sets can also be made 24fps compatible for motion picture production.

 

The new Masterwork II series sets employ LCD screens for smaller cabinets such as slimlines, portables, and Predictas where use of a CRT is not possible. Every attempt is made to approximate the original aesthetic of the set including the use of custom masks and faceplates in place of the original B&W CRTs

Warranty

Electronics are guaranteed for an industry standard one year, while we guarantee our CRTs for three years. We make every attempt to make each set as serviceable as possible in the build-out process and provide an advance exchange service on most internal electronic components should service ever be necessary.
