Specification of LcttersPatent. Patented'Aug. 163 .'1921.
Application filed. October 8, 1919. Serial-No.` 329,377.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, CORNELIUS M; Cou'rrs,
Y a citizen of the United States, residing at Y I do hereby dec-lare the Issaquah, -in the county of King andvState of Washington, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Shelving; and followingto, be a full, clear, and eXact description of theinvention, such as will enable others skilled in the art towhich itgappertains to make and use the same.
Y This invention relates to new andV useful.l
improvements in shelving for display cabinets especially.u adaptable for supporting bolts of cloth and similar dry goods and has for one of its objects the provision of means which will support bolts of cloth independent of each other and which will permit any one of the bolts to be removed-without inter-Vvv fering with the other bolts, thus obviating the necessity of removing several bolts to obtain the desired bolt as now frequent in the ordinary manner of displaying bolt cloth.
Another object of this invention is the provision of means whereby-the shelves can be adjusted to accommodate bolts of cloth in different sizes.
A furthery object of this invention is the provision of shelving of the above stated character, which shall be simple, durable and eficient, and which may be manufactured and sold at a comparatively low cost.
With these and other objects in view as will become more apparent as the description proceeds, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, combination, and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described and claimed.
For a complete understanding of my invention reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, in which Figure l is a front elevation of a display cabinet illustrating shelving applied thereto and constructed in accordance with my invention,
Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of the same,
Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view,
Fig. 4 is a plan view of one of the shelves,
Fig. 5 isV a detail sectional view illustrating the means of securing the racks to the shelves,
Fig. 6 is a detail view illustrating a modified form of means of connecting the racks Vto the shelving frame,V
`F ig. 7 is a plan view of a modiedform of shelf used for centerV display so that the bolts of cloth can be supported oneach side* of the shelf, n
Fig.8 is a fragmentary plan view illustrating the kracks arranged in oppositely disposed pairs, Y
Fig. 9 is a fragmentary perspective view f of 'the shelf illustrating the recesses in the walls of the grooves. Y
Referring. in detail to the drawings, the numeral' 1 indicates a display cabinet having its front open so that the contents therein can be readily Viewed. The side walls 2 :0f the cabinet have' secured thereto vertically disposed supporting elements 8 provided with spaced notches 4 to receive mem- `bers 5 ywhich members are'adapted to supportl shelves 6. The supporting elements 3 are provided-with a plurality of notches so that the members 5 can be moved from one set of notches to another. for` regulating the height of the shelves 6. The cabinet 1 is kprovided with an intermediate shelf 7 of an ordinary construction so that the' cabinet is divided into upper and lower compartments. Any number of compartments can be provided inthe cabinet by the number of shelves 7 employed. The shelf 7 is supported by members 5 carried by the supporting elements 3. The shelves 6 consist of substantially U-shaped frames 8 which have-their arm portions 9 resting on the members or elements 5 while their bight portions 10 are provided with spaced slots 11 to receive the inner ends of resilient racks y 12. Any number of racks 12 is employed upon a frame 8 and each is identical in construction and reference to Vone is thought sufficient for all. The rack 12 consists of a pair of resilient members both of which are bent upon themselves and one disposed within the other and having their ends joined together by spaced rivets 14. The rivets 14 are arranged upon each side of the bight portion of the frame 8 so that the inward and outward movements of the racks 12 are limited in relation to the frame. The frame 8 has bolts 15 extending therethrough adjacent the grooves or slots 11 to receive nuts 16 which overlie the inner ends of the racks for retaining them in their respective grooves but which permit the racks tobe reare disposed vertically and gripped between the racks so that any desired bolt can be removed from the cabinet 1 Without interfer- A ing or requiring the removal of any of the respective other bolts. bolts when supported by the racks 12 are in clear vievv and properly spaeed'from each other so that the character of cloth carried by the bolts can be readily determined without removing the bolts from the cabinet.
Referring to my modified form of invention, the bolts and nuts 15 and 16 are eliminated and the racks are held Within their grooves by means of a strip 17 secured to the bight portion of the frame 8 of the shelves.
lf desired the racks can be used independent of a eabinetand employed to take the place of ordinary shelving in a room by having the shelves 6 carrying the racks secured to the Wall of the room or other support. In Fig. 7 I have illustrated the application of the racks to each side of the shelf and in this instance the shelf Will be employed for center display, having bolts of cloth on each side of the shelf. rl`he grooves in the shelf are provided with recesses 12 to receive the rivets in the racks which will prevent said racks from having endvvise movement and also prevent the bolts of cloth from contacting or catching into the rivets. The racks are held Within the grooves by means of a continuance strip 18 constructed from any material suitable for the purpose.
ln Fig. 8 l have shown the rac-ks arranged in oppositely disposed pairs and the grooves in the Shelf in this instance do not extend entirely across the shelf but are arranged f in pairs and the Walls thereof have oppositely disposed grooves to receive the rivets of each rack. The racks are held Within the 'it is also to be noted that the from the spirit and scope ofthe invention as claimed. K
Having thus described my invention, What l claim is 1. A shelf comprising` a frame having spaced grooves and notches, and the latter being in communication With the former, a plurality of racks each including a pair of resilient members varying in length and bent upon themselves with the shortest members disposed Within the longest members and having their ends arranged in close relation and disposed in the grooves, rivets passing through the ends of said members and fitting in the notches, and means securing the ends of said members in the grooves.
2. A shelving comprising a frame having spaced grooves, resilient members bent upon themselves vvith their ends arranged in parallel relation and resting in said grooves, rivets connecting said ends of the resilient members and engaging the frame to prevent endwise movement of said members in relation to the frame, and means retaining the ends of said members in the grooves of the frame.
ln testimony whereof I affix my signaturer in presence of tivo Witnesses.
