Can you put the vintage TV set in the correct decade?

Is your memory in VHF or UHF?

We talk a lot about television shows, but we don't talk enough about the televisions themselves. Back in the day, they were works of art, more furniture than picture frame. 

They were made of carved wood and bright molded plastic. They could fit in the palm of your hand or support a houseplant. TV sets continually evolved over the years.

So, think you can match a vintage TV set to the correct decade?

Below, you will see advertisement images from the 1950s through 1990s. See if your electronics memories are crystal clear or obscured by snow.

These advertisement images are coming in like a weak UHF signal. Fiddle with the rabbit ears and try another quiz.

Your memory is crystal clear! The era of rabbit ears is still as sharp as HD in your mind.
