Vintage Belgian Artists Easel
Dating to the early 50’s, this original timber artists easel is in superb condition. Made by the Belgian company, De Distel, they traded in drawing material and art supplies for painters, sculptors, graphic artists and architects, with their shop location in the immediate proximity of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. This large studio easel provides an easily adjustable, sturdy H-frame design which is set on 4 castor wheels allowing smooth gliding around a studio floor. The large central column adjusts up and down to accommodate different size canvases with a trigger action release system. With the most beautiful aged dry paint patina from years of use, this vintage easel is all kinds of wonderful. Perfect to display a favourite piece of art (as pictured), books, even a flat screen TV perhaps, or maybe use as an actual easel.
