Sterling Philco TV Clip and Cuff Links, 1957
This whimsical set of sterling silver tie clip and cuff links is formed as television sets, to publicize Philco’s new ‘Predicta’ model. The Predicta was first produced in 1957, but it proved unreliable and was discontinued in 1960, according to Wikipedia. Its prominent feature was a swivel screen set on a wood or metal box, with several design variations. These three pieces are marked sterling and the tiny televisions each have the same dimensions: 5/8 inch wide by ¾ inch high. There is an unidentified maker’s mark on the back, an italic ‘A’ in a circle. Weight: 18.2 grams total
