The Thiele M4 Tube Condenser Vintage Microphone is offerred today, circa 1960's. The tube is a 12AX7 / ECC83 and I've read that this is a large diaphragm capsule quite suitable for vocals.  I found a schematic sketched of it (below). The power supply is inside the mike.  The company apparently is Thiele, Leipzig (Osd.)  The case is metal. The base is cracked and a piece is missing. This requires a 220V AC power source which I do not have. Therefore, function has not been assessed.  I've read that the quality of this mike approaches the Neumann U-47 but I have no personal knowledge in these regards. Cosmetically, besides the cracked base, it is in excellent condition.  Likewise, it stands sturdily as the crack does not destabilize it.
