This one is pretty rare

That one is one of my latest acquisitions, it is a Bomarc from the 1960's, metal cabinet. In Brazil, in the 50's and 60's there were tens of obscure little brands like that, and those are the most difficult TVs to collect.

That's unique, I haven't seen anything like it before.

It looks like what I would imagine if you told me that an outdoor lighted business sign and a portable TV had a baby...

I don't think anyone in the US or Japan made anything with that kind of build.

I like the look of it , with it's tuner on the bottom . It looks like the top left knob says "Volume" , with perhaps something before that ("On / Off" maybe) what does it say under the right knob ?

I've seen early Japanese sets that looked similar!
They didn't quite look the same, but they did have plastic safety lenses.
They seemed to have strange brand names, maybe from the importer.
No UHF or U/L approval. Some did have strange tube numbers like 25BB14 that were strictly a Japanese numbering system. They did work reasonably well, but a little trouble prone that the US makes. They did run very hot because of the small size and the metal case.

It says "Brilho" which is the Portuguese word for "Brightness."

Thank You , I appreciate the answer .

To me , the tuner on the bottom is what really makes that TVs look appealing to me . It seems most of the TVs I'm used to seeing have the tuner as the top or near top control and your set just looks so different , I like it .
