5" Pocket C-Stand

Sale price $139.00 Regular price $149.00


The Authentic Matthews Miniature C-Stand is perfect for tabletop or miniature work. 

Handcrafted in Matthews California headquarters, it is a

working replica of co-founder Ed Phillips’ hallmark folding-base, 40” Century Stand invented in 1974.

Copied by competitors but never truly recreated, Matthews’ industry staple became the most universally used tool on sets worldwide. Initially made with welded and cast parts, today Matthews full-size C-Stands now offer machined and welded legs for enhanced strength and reliability.
