An Easel is an upright support used for displaying and/or fixing something resting upon it. Display Easels are meant for the display of finished works. These Easels tend to be very simple in design with concern for the stability needed by a working artist. Display Easels can vary in size and sturdiness depending upon the weight and size of the object to be placed on them. Easels are made to accommodate a wide range of products. They're best for flat items.
