The Testrite company of Newark, New Jersey, has manufactured metal artist easels since World War II. The company was founded in 1919 in New York City, where they manufactured and imported items for science and industry.
World War II ended Testrite's ability to import, and forced them to diversify their manufacturing. Their easel line is chock full of classics that get the job done and last.
We've selected the most popular offerings in both portable and studio ranges. They are all noted for their flexibility and sturdiness. The innovative offering of lighting solutions for the studio series is a hallmark of the line.
No one would accuse Testrite of making an item that was merely pretty — each is an expression of the axiom "form follows function." What is beautiful about Testrite easels? They work.
