for sale is restored vintage, cast iron tripod base drafting table by Keuffel & Essel.

Keuffel & Essel tables are exciting: they are rare to come by, and remain an integral part of American history. the company was founded in 1867 by German immigrants, and was the first American company to specialize in drafting instruments and supplies.

yes, you got it right. the first.

the company survived WWII. it was at the frontier of industrial revolution. it was at the roots of the innovative thinking on making workspace flexible, ergonomic and allowing to accommodate for higher demands of growing industrialization.

this tri-legged cast iron base adjustable table was featured at the Catalogue and Price List of Keuffel & Esser Co from 1913. it swivels and tilts and is easily adjustable by one person. solid wood top, measuring 30 1/2 by 27 inches. when tilted, top splits creating a ledge on top that holds writing instruments and or artist tools. tilted top has small ledge on bottom so papers don’t fall off.

height adjusts from low of 29 3/4 to high of over 43 inches. table has been fully restored. cast iron base was taken apart, stripped and cleaned. top was sanded and covered in several layers of teak oil.

would be great for an artist looking for a unique and scalable solution with fine lines and lots of mobility.
