Tube Box Art, Part 11: DuMont

Hi!

As far as I'm aware DuMont relabelled tubes from other manufacturers, most probably mainly Sylvania.  Their boxes have a simple yet very interesting and unique style.




I actually only came across two different box styles from DuMont. I believe the one in the next photo is older:


 
 
These boxes contain Octal TV dampe tubes. Other sides of the same boxes:
 



The top flaps showing their contents: 6aX4 and 6AU4 tubes:




The bottom flaps:




More interesting are their later boxes in a gold color:






 
 
These boxes contain an octal and a 9-pin miniature tube.
 



As with mot boxes the tube types are indicated on the top flaps. here we have a 6AX4 and a 6AM4:




I hope you enjoyed the presentation of the DuMont Tube Box Art. Say tuned for more articles about tube box design.




Best regards

Thomas
