Vintage Silvertone Satellite TV antenna. A space age version of rabbit ear antenna. Brown plastic body sits on a rotating plastic tripod base. The brass plated arms extend to brown plastic caps. Connected to the ends are two brass plated adjustable antennae. The ends rotate 90 degrees. The center body is marked Silvertone Satellite and has a rotating center dial that I believe has Television channels and a setting for FM. Great space age mid century gadget. Looks like a flying saucer or something that landed from outer space. Measures 23" long and approximately 4" high. It is 10 1/2" at its widest point. There is an antenna wire and a connector.Possibly from the 1950's or 1960's. No damage except a broken clip on the underside that locks the tripod base in place. There are two clips (see photo) and the broken clip does not effect the base. It locks tight with one clip and rotates freely. It does not effect the stability or functionality of the antenna in any way that I can see. Please email me if you have any questions.
