The commemorative 50th Anniversary Matthews Studio Equipment® Miniature C-Stand pays tribute to film’s historical past. Handcrafted in MSE’s 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.
Made of these same materials, the authentic miniature Matthews Minature C-Stand is a nostalgic and practical desktop phone caddy.
