Item details

The perfect tool for "ein plein" art! Tuck it under you arm, hang from your belt, stick it in your backpack- grab your paints, some fruit, and off you go! This tool is a beauty! Handmade from natural OAK, it folds up neatly and slips into a lovely brown velvet bag! How elegant! Don't you feel like painting in a park, on a picnic table, where passersby can admire your artwork and your very special easel? Of course you can also use it at your desk. You might even use it for display of a completed artwork such as painting, fabric collage, needlework, or other vintage favorite!

Now for the attempt to describe: All of the oak wood edges are slightly rounded and smooth- no splinters here! The first three photographs show the folding easel base which consists of two oak boards, screwed in the middle, to form an "X" shape. These form the legs of the front and are finished with two screwed and rotating tabs which hold the art. The fourth photo shows what the easel looks like when holding artwork- just the two tabs show. The fifth photo is taken from the back! The back leg holds the easel up and is hinged to the front, while the two leather cords support the easel when it is in the open position. Because of the use of the leather cords, the whole thing folds up into a fairly compact 13.5 inch long bag by about 3 inches wide. The tabs protrude 1.75 inches from the base legs and are each 2 inches in height. If they are removed, the width of the bag could be reduced to about 1.25 inches wide!

A very cleverly made easel, and it's a beauty. It will be a joy to work with. You deserve a break today. Take your easel, go out and play!
