Whether it's a beautiful heirloom plate or a piece of art with great personal value, one way to put it on display is to prop it up on an easel. It displays the object at an angle best suited for viewers while keeping them from making any contact with the collectible in question. Easels can also add visual appeal to a showpiece. This guide will help to choose the right display easel for one's needs.
Putting it on display
The type of easel purchased will depend heavily, of course, on the item to be displayed. The size is the foremost consideration--mini easels meant to hold coins and shells exist, as do larger ones meant for commemorative plaques and photo frames. There are also types with wide bases for showing off objects like rocks and geodes.
A display easel is either made of transparent or opaque materials, and the choice made depends on the intended use. Clear acrylic stands are better when the focus is supposed to be on the object in it--like a badge or a collectible card. On the other hand, solid easels are more suitable for decorative items like plates and can add to the overall aesthetic effect. Shoppers will find such stands made typically of metal or wood, often featuring design elements like curves or curlicues.
The items to be put on display are usually of value to the user, sentimental or otherwise, so it's vital to ensure sturdy, reliable construction that can hold the object without damaging it or collapsing under its weight. They should also be corrosion-resistant. Some stands come with adjustable arms and legs to fit items of different widths, while others can be folded flat for ease of storage: these might be most appropriate for occasional use (such as at parties).
