I just picked up this NOS TV stand from ebay for $11 :) Some assembly required.

I've seen similar stands before with skinny portable TVs. Like 60s B&W sets with high deflection angle 114 degree CRTs.

I tried it with this 19" Silvertone but it's too big and heavy.

I bet something like this little 13" Admiral Playmate would be perfect. First time I ever got a stand in need of a TV :scratch2:

When I saw the stand, I thought it was for the Playmate series. It had a "T" handle on it.
Admiral made a great performing small set in the day. The picture was razor-sharp and it was a great DXing set. The 13" model had a tension band CRT, where the 11" had a plastic protective screen, that scratched easily. For $10.00 more, it was the better choice.
