Zenith Style

I am new(ish) here, so if I missed some protocol in my reading of the site, my apologies. I came across a H2023W (July 1976) console around five years ago at a resale shop in Milwaukee. It is currently my second unit but my favorite for playing classic video games on. My question is does anyone know what style this console is? I know Zenith gave names such as the Mediterranean, or the Bexley. Though this TV I have is the only one Ive seen where the side molding isn't the usual pillar look. Sorry for the flash and lighting, but it was the only way to get a clear shot of the front side molding.

Y'know, that *is* an unusual cabinet....I don't believe I've ever seen that style before in a Zenith. Looks to be solid wood too

I probably have a copy of the schematic if you need it. You seem to be in my neck of the woods if you are looking to buy, sell, or get technical assistance I may be able to help.

The W in the model indicates its walnut. I dont have the
folders for the H line sets but in the G line the closest
one is called mediteranian.

That's a nice looking cabinet, usually the bottom fake drawer section is plastic but it sure looks real in that picture.

Thanks for the help and replies. I don't know if any schematics would help me, I've built gaming computers but never really messed with TV's and not sure I would be able to with confidence. I do know my SF2717N has a speaker issue and a soft discolored picture, but still plays Nintendo 64 games pretty good. I did upload a few pictures, mainly of the bottom molding. I did use the flash to get it a bit clearer up front. Though my camera (phone) hasn't worked in bad lighting well after I dropped it.

Most of it looks like solid oak. Hell of a quality cabinet.

Man, I never knew Zenith offered such high-quality cabinets at that time. I have a similar G-line set with the usual plastic-fantastic base and sides.
