Aluminum Artist Studio Easel - This lighweight easel will hold canvas up to 48 inches high. The bottom utility tray measures 21 inches wide. Unlike many other similar aluminum easels, this easel is designed to fold completely flat for easy storage and portability. Many similar aluminum easels are fixed at the base and do not fold up; this easel has a unique mechanism that allows the bottom to fold inward so that you can easily collapse it and tote it along with you. Features a black brushed finish. This easel is surprisingly sturdy and it is an excellent value - we were delighted when we set it up and tried it for the first time!
