Another strange one! The Sky Queen 2 - no service data available but this has a printed circuit chassis and a common Ever Ready valve lineup. The set-top handle has been removed from this model - it is in cream coloured plastic with looped wire sides.

This set appears to be a little more slimline than the old Queen - a forerunner to the early transistor designs, perhaps, or the next incarnation (Sky Queen 3) which was, indeed, transistorised.
