Who made Olympic sets? Were they their own manufacturer or are these clones of something?

Olympic made their own stuff as far as I know - I think they were out of New York or somewhere closeby.

Sounds fun to work on, really like the looks of this one. I like the oddball sets, there's always something different to look at. I'm tired of rca clones. Thanks for the info!

I believe they were true clones (Olympic built them, based on the RCA design). They had a poor reputation and were out of business by '70. I've never seen an intact Olympic color set in person; I have a bw set but it was made in Japan. They were owned in later years by Lear. If I could, I would save it, just for the oddball factor.
