- Not remembering exactly what era of my life this was purchased,
- I gather it must have been during my art training. This goes back to my high school days (the sixties) during which I took a correspondance course with Art Instruction Schools. Some of you may know of or remember their small black & white magazine ads boldly titled 'DRAW ME'. I more than likely bought it to do my lesson-work with my babysitting savings [going rate of that day was .50 an hr.] Nevertheless, it has a generous adjustable tilt level which I find desirous since I usually prop up what I am working on anyhow. Or, at times, my regular easel sits a bit too vertically. One nice feature: it can be set almost as level as a regular table. This is good for applying varnish or a watery wash which you don't want dripping down.
This drawing table ( along with my doll, Madeline :)! ) has survived many, many moves and situations.
