The home in the first four pictures does have the "lived-in" look.
The set-top antenna is in several different places in the four pictures. It must've been hard to get decent reception in that location.
I never saw a sofa with that kind of arm, where the cushion was part way under the arm.
The TV, that a good question? It looks like an Admiral, turned upside down.
To me, it could be an East-coast make, Olympic, CBS Columbia!
Not enough of the front is visible.

I thought the same thing when I saw that picture. I also noticed how twisted/warped that cushion was, and wondered if that was caused by the design rather than by regular usage.

Watching Perry Mason Episodes. There are a lot of Radio's,.. TV's and Great old Cars. His main "go to guy" Detective Paul, drives a nice Corvette. This set was spied in The case of the Vagabond Vixen.

17" Zenith circa 1954... Some had a pop up band shell speaker on top.

Makes sense, Zenith may have been a sponsor.

Yes, one of the nicest vintage TV's. I put it in my "if you can have only one" list. A nice looking set and a great performer once restored.
Here's a couple more I've culled from the Net:
A late '40's rare Videodyne, and a Philco 1948 48-1001:

Fine with me too, although that pic looks a little muddy.
Here's what that Videodyne TV actually looks like in case anyone is curious:

Did anyone figure out what brand set they are watching? I've been searching google images for an hour and come up short.
