Telecaster TV-FM radio in Roslyn, WA with channel 1

https://seattle.craigslist.org/est/a...721529704.html

Looks like they may have done a 10-inch to 12-inch conversion on this set. That's the only reason why I'd
think someone would have tried to remove the back side paint on the safety glass.

"Beautiful Early 1950's Telecaster Porthole TV.
Knobs Missing but makes a nice display piece!
Located in Roslyn, WA Asking $150!
It can be delivered for free within an approximate 80 mile radius.
You will need your own help to unload, though.
Serious Inquires Only please!"

I vaguely recall seeing photographs of a Packard Bell like that...

Judging by the face paint and what can be seen of the CRT in the telecaster it looks more like the paint peeled than a bigger CRT retrofit.

I think so too. Otherwise they likely would have opened up the width instead of the height. Also possible someone started cleaning the inside glass with paint thinner. Oops

The set is prettier in blonde than in mahogany, and the Craigslist price is much, much more realistic.

Shame about the mask.

While $500 is way high, I think it's more realistic to give $500 for a near mint set that can be restored, than $150 for a set that's basically a junk parts donor. There's no realistic way to fix that mask, plus the missing knobs, crap finish, and who know what else.

If the ebay pictures are good enough and someone is proficient with photoshop one could create an image of the original pattern print it full size on a large sheet of transparency then sandwich that between glass to get a comparable effect to the original.

Yes, anything can be fixed with enough time and money, but sometimes it's just cheaper to buy a good condition set to start with.
