This easel box has proved a best seller all year round, it is made from high quality hardwood and features comb joints, brass coloured hardware and a leather carrying handle. Internally the Chatsworth features ample storage space, foam cushioned base and adjustable divisions. Suitable for all painting mediums.
The Chatsworth Duke is a larger version of the Earl, offering the same features. Its adjustable painting angle makes it suitable for all mediums including pastels and calligraphy.
I used this item to start up an animal portraitist business and have found this comparatively lightweight, versatile easel so accommodating for my limited usage due to impaired mobility.
It can be used on coffee table tops, against computer desks or even against garden patio tables that allows one to work with natural light and sunbathe at the same time.
I am even using it balanced on my lap and against the arm of an armchair to produce my latest portrait.
Thank you and well done for supplying this product.

I bought this to take some of my watercolour equipment on holiday. It did the trick perfectly. A carpenter friend was impressed with the quality and value of my box. Jackie Westby (Dunoon, United Kingdom) on 4 Apr 2013
Nicely and well made and finished. For anyone who receives and doesn't realise it is packed with the wing nuts on inside to help ensure it doesn't damage its own packing, so you easily take out and put the wing nuts on the outside. The slip guard on the canvas shelf is a bit deep so whilst for transporting with the canvas on the easle it is good, it could get in the way of painting, but that is easily solved by turning the shelf upside down so the guard is underneath and it works well that way as the slope will keep the work on. For a small slip guard cut some plastic in a circle and use a hole punch, and put it under one or both washers of the shelf nuts. The angle adjust and stability is good. The box closure is secure, and the clamp works well. I am happy with it. Mark Harold (Sidcup, United Kingdom) on 14 Dec 2016
