Domestic Advertisements: Regentone A25 (and U25) Table Radio and Big '12' Table TV

This trader advert from July 1951 shows the A25 table radio and smart oddly named Big '12' table TV.  The radio is unusual in having a plastic and wood case, twin speakers and two-speed tuning.  All TVs had the same size screen (12") so Regentone try to convince us there's is somehow bigger!
