FS: 1949 Motorola Table model TV

Hi All,
A neighbor of mine, has this 1949 Motorola for sale, as MAKE OFFER. I went over there last night, checked the CRT (looks to be a 10BP4), which is weak, but has plenty of cut-off and no shorts, and no brightener ever on it, so I believe it will "wake up." The back is missing, as well as the cord, but looks like all tubes in place. I did notice the 2nd. Anode lead is disconnected from the CRT, and, judging by the chassis dust, has all been untouched, HV lead included, for many years! Set is dry, and no rust, I did not notice any odor, and the set is in a non-smokers dry garage. Cabinet has scratches and scuffs, the knobs, all are there. There is an antique pair of rabbit ears on top, which I believe will be included with the set. Please see photos attached. If interested, send me a private message, and I will give you the owner's phone number, and you can contact them directly, they are nice folks! I have explained that it's no where near an expensive set, and they are looking to sell very reasonably (make offer), to someone interested, rather that throw it away, so by this, I think you could score it for well under $50.00, in my opinion. The set is in my neighborhood, in Farmington Hills, MI, a far northwest suburb of the Detroit area. Thanks in advance.
