The Perfect Solid Wood A- Frame Tilting Lyre Easel that tucks away when not in use when space is at a premium!
Need a spare easel for students who take classes in your studio? A workspace for visiting artists or friends? Don’t have a studio (or like to work on the porch or patio and can’t maneuver your giant HFrame easel outside) and need something that can be tucked into a closet or slid under the bed when not in use? Try Mabef’s M11D AFrame style Tilting Lyre Easel. Made from durable, quality solid wood oiled Beechwood with classic Italian design, don’t let its’ simplicity fool you into not seeing it for the workhorse it is capable of being! A long time favorite of colleges and atelier educational settings, The Lyre has been around for a reason— ease of portability and storage, but still being able to hold canvases up to 49” high. At the lowest setting on the mast, it is 69 1/4”; full height it reaches 96 1/2” tall. The ratcheting canvas tray adjusts quickly and easily when working, and still can manage to support a canvas up to 22lbs in weight. Using minimal floorspace in institutional settings, the footprint measures a mere 26” x 30”. The Tilt for painting and pastel work is 5 degrees forward and 15 degrees backwards, adjusted easily with a sliding mast adjustment. The tray can go as low as 15 3/4” from the floor, to 41 3/4” high.
