Easel Decision

So, Country Boy has started painting a lot lately and he is really good.  He asked for an easel and sent me a pic of this new easel on the right.  But, I wanted to go the old school route.  So, I started looking on ebay for some easels with character.  
I thought this one was perfect and for the same price as the new easel.  
I love the idea of buying something old, that tells a story.  This ones a "Grumbacher."
I wouldn't mind having it for the apartment.
It even folds up like the newer versions.
But, hubby likes this one.  What do you guys think? 
Oldie or Newbie?

  1. I would go for the vintage. But that's just me.

  2. Go with an H frame art easel. The tripods are not very sturdy and are mostly used for on location painting. I found a couple you should check out.
