Antiquarian Wood Book Easel is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Completely Manufactured to be used upon receipt. The wood is good, the stain consistent. However, there is a brace that each of the 'legs' fits into. This bracing was not drilled out on all 4 legs, so that two of the 'feet' could not be attached. I have a drill press and completed the wholes so it could be used, however, for the price I would have expected this to be done and done well. The book stand is from China and the quality over all was lacking. I was crunched for time or I would have returned the stand to have it replaced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Needs to be redesigned! This book stand is good for standard desk top heights only, as for my dinning and sitting room tables it of no use. These problems could be easily solved by adding an adjustment feature that would allow high medium , low and or in between levels to meet all eye level viewing needs. This book reader stand is over priced because for someone like me who reads at lease 50 books a year it does not have any versatility feature that would make it an item to cherish!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective part This product came with a big bite of wood out of one of the parts and a glue or lacquer stain. Returned it today. Cannot believe that this would have passed any quality inspection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Very easy to put together. Just had to tweak one leg to get it level. The anti-scratch pads on the bottoms of the legs was a nice touch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap and nasty When fully assembled the product does not stand level; it wobbles. Several different types of wood are used which absorb the stain color differently, so it looks variegated. The largest piece of wood upon which the book rests is ply wood, heavily disguised and stained. The Toscano description inflates the quality of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Timeless Look Just look at the photo I have uploaded. The item is very traditional. It looks like it could be an antique.
