Everything Croton continues its very popular series GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN....and so without further ah-doo...ALMOST GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN: THE T.V. DINNER TRAY TABLE! Also known as a T.V. Tray Table--a small, portable and easily collapsible table--originally designed to be a pop-up surface where one could eat a meal while watching television.
Very popular in the 50's--and the 60's--and you can still find sets now and
then in tag sales...national advertising for TV tray tables first appeared in
1952, a full year before Swanson introduced the TV dinner in October 1953. A
set of four TV tables were sometimes sold mounted on a small rack where they could
be hung when not in use. This rack was popularly placed in a corner of the
living room and so...click on the photos to see some catalog examples made by
Cal-Dak in 1960. Enjoy!
