ORIGINAL ELVGREN EASEL *Part 1 of 2 :
* PRICE * $89,000 (Plus $1500 to $2200 USA or some international shipping), total price in a 2 listed 2 part 30 day or less 2 payment layaway
Each payment is $45,500 of each payment per includes shipping and creating costs.
If the shipping cost less or item picked up the shipping cost will be refunded to buyer.
*The reason for the the split payments and 2 part layaway, is because this service host does not allow each listing to be more than $50,000.
So I have to divide the amount across two listings, part 1 and 2. When 1st is paid, I will relist part 2.
When part 2 is paid I will release the item for pick up and/or ship to the buyer.

YES! This is the Only easel the great artist Gil Elvgren used for about 40 years to make all of his pinup, calendar, Coca Cola and all other illustration paintings on. When he died, there was still an unfinished painting on the easel.
IMPORTANT READ THE WHOLE DESCRIPTIONS AND AGREEMENTS BEFORE PURCHASE.
Most serious collectors know that about 40% of all Elvgren paintings were thrown away and lost forever, by the pinup, calendar and advertising companies. Still as rare as the paintings are, good ones come available and sell for $125,000 to over $ 345,000 as recorded in a 2011 auction at Heritage Auctions. ( Please remember to ad 20% fee to the buyers winning bid, as that is what they really paid!).
So buy it here and avoid and save the auction run up and the 20% buyers fee. Because if doesn't sell here we will run it through the Heritage Auction House.
RECENT HISTORY OF THIS EASEL - I bought this easel in 2001 from Marianne Philips a collector who bought it years ago and had it documented as such. An additional photo of the same easel can be seen in the book she wrote called Elvgren Poster Book, which was published before she sold me the easel. Other photos of the easel are in the Elvgren Book "ELVGREN - His Life and Art". Many photos document me with the easel in display and use at my Vanguard Gallery and art studio in Carmel, Ca. Where I paint with full authority, Elvgren replica pinup paintings for the last 20 years.
