Cossor 1210 15" monochrome television receiver, manufactured by A C Cossor Limited, 1938-1939, Serial No 38542.
Only roughly 5000 people total owned a television set in the UK, so very few people saw the first televised Wimbledon tournament. Those who did would've had a large, tall wooden television like this.
