STUCK AND IDISIPLAY (EASE.
Application filed July 22, 1921. Serial No. 486,759.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that l, MONES Gross, a citizen of the United States, residing at Berwick, in the county of Columbia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Stock and Display Cases, of which the following is a specification.
llhis invention relates to show cases, and the primary object of the invention is to provide an improved case embodying a novel display section, and a novel reserve stock section, said sections being so constructed and arranged as to combine to form a umtary case.
Another object of the invention is the provision of a novel case embodying a display and a stock section, which is susceptible for use with any kind of merchandise, but which is particularly designed for the handling of collars in haberdashery stores and the like.
The method now pursued in the handling of collars is to provide a plurality of wall shelves, which in some places is impractical and sometimes impossible, for receiving the collar stock boxes and small display cabinets, which are often placed at display points remote from the collar box supporting shelves.
The inconvenience of this system is readily apparent, but no relief, as far as is known, has been proposed. One of the main objectionable features of this system is that when the collar department is placed in one the same cannot be moved to another part without considerable difficulty, time and labor. f
It is therefore a prime object of this invention to provide an improved store case having a common base, upon which is arranged a relatively narrow transparent display section for the reception of the difterent styles of collars which are to be shown to the public, and a relatively deep 0 aque stock section, in which can be slidably mounted the stock boxes for receiving the collars. It can thus be seen that the' stock and display collars are all arranged to-' gether in a common case, which not only aids the salesman in the handling of the collars, but which also adds to the appearance and neatness of the store.
A still further object of the invention is the provlsion of a novel collapsible partltion arranged between the display and stock portlons of the case for permitting the collars in the display portion to be changed when necessary or desirable.
A still further object of the invention is to provide a; novel means for associating stock box supporting shelves in the stock port on of the case so that the same may be read ly removed in order to permit the collapslng of the partition, and a novel means for locklng or closing the rear stock end of the case, so that the stealing of stock from the case will not be possible when the case s placed in common thoroughfares, such as in large oflice buildings, railway stations, and the like.
A still further object of the invention is to provide an improved show case of the above character, which will be durable and efiicient in use, one that will be simple and easy to manufacture, and one which will be readily placed upon the market at a reason able cost.
With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the 'novel constructron, arrangement and formation of parts,
as will be hereinafter more specifically de-' scribed, claimed and illustrated in the accompanymg drawings, forming a part of this spec fication, in which drawings:
Flgure 1 is a perspective view of the improved store case.
Flgure 2 is a perspective View of the improved case looking at the rear end thereof, showing the stock shelves removed and one section of the folding partition in its open posltlon, for permitting the placing of the display collars in the display portion of the case.
Figure 3 is a rear elevation of the improved store case, showing the locking doors in position thereon.
Figure 4 is a transverse section through the improved store case, taken on'the line 4-4 of Figure 3.
Figure 5 is a detail perspective view of one of the locking members, which is slidably associated with the case for detachably holding the rear locking doors in position, and
Figure 6 is an enlar ed fragmentary detail perspective view iilustratin the novel type of shackle utilized for holding the rear doors in position when the same are used.
Referring to the drawings in detail, wherein similar reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, the letter A indicates the base portion of the improved store case; B, the stock portion of the case; and C, the display portion of the case. The s tock and display portions of the case are dlVlded from each other, by a novel partition D, and if found desirable, removable rear doors E can be provided for the case, which can be held in place, by suitable means designated by the letter F, which will be described here inafter more in detail. a The base A can be constructed of any desired size and of any desired material, and as shown consists of a flat elongated rectangular shaped base plate 10. The corners of the base plates 10 are provided with supporting feet 11, which can be secured thereto in any preferred manner. These supporting feet 11 tend to support the base from above the surface of the floor or other support. The outer edge or face of the base can be ornamented in any preferred manner if so desired. This of course, forms no part of the invention.-
The stock and display sections B and C are arranged on the upper surface of the base A, as can be clearly seen from the drawings. The stock section B includes side walls 15, which are preferably, but not. necessarily, formed of some ornamental wood, and 'an upper wall 16, which is also preferably formed from an ornamental wood. The rear end of the section B is normally left open, so that the stock collar boxes can readily be inserted in the case. The side and top walls 15 and 16, of course, terminate short of the forward edge of the base A, as clearly shown in Fi ure 4: of the drawings. The display section includes a transparent front wall 17, preferably formed of plate glass, end or side walls 18, and a top wall 19. The side or end walls 18 and the top wall 19 are also preferably formed of plate glass, and the corners thereof are connected together by suitable corner fastening means 20. The rear edges of the top and end walls 18 and 19 can also be clamped to, or connected in any preferred manner as at 21 with the side and end walls 15 and 16 of the stock portion B. I
If found desirable or necessary, the lower edges of the front wall 17 and the side and end walls 18 may be mounted in suitable frames 22 which can be countersunk in the upper surface of the base A.
The novel folding partition D divides the display section B from the stock section C messed 28 to the side walls 15 of the section B and to a central transverse partition 29. Each door 27 consists of panels 30, which are also hingedly connected together as at 31. This formation aids in the collapsing of the partition, in order to facilitate the placing and removing of the articles to be displayed in the display section.
The opposite sides of the transverse partition 29 are provided withguide grooves 32, which are formed in direct alignment with guide grooves 33, formed in the inner surfaces of the side walls 15. These guide grooves 32 and 33 are adapted to slidably support the shelves 34, upon which are adapted to be placed the ordinary stock collar boxes, or other merchandise as the case may be. It can be seen that the central transverse partition 29 forms two compartments in the stock portion of the case.
The display portion C of the case may be provided with suitable longitudinally extending transparent display shelves 35, which are held in position by suitable brackets 36, Which are adjustably mounted in a vertical plane on standard strips 37. The upper and lower ends of these standard strips 37 are offset, and provided with feet 38, which can be secured to the forward edge of the top wall 16 of stock section B and to the base A. The method of disposing of the collars on the shelves can readily be seen from Figure 1 of the drawings, but it is to be understood, of course, that the collars can be placed thereon, or arranged in the display portion C in any preferred or desired man ner.
In use of the improved show case, the shelves 34 are removed, and the partition D collapsed, in order to permit the placing of display collars in the section C. The display shelves 35 are arranged in the desired manner, and the collars are then placed in position. The partition D is then extended into its operative position, which forms a flat rear wall, as clearly shown in Figure 1 of the drawings for the display section C. The supporting shelves 34 are then replaced in position, and the stock collar boxes placed thereon. It is apparent that it is not often that display collars have to be changed, as the styles in collars change very slowly, and often display collars will not have to be changed for a number of seasons. When a customer desires a collar, he can merely show the salesman what collar he desires, in
talented 13, 211
the display portion of the case, and the salesman can then slide the stock box rearwardly from the shelf and lift a collar therefrom. Thus the collar can be sold, without the salesman moving from the back of the case. A case of this character can be conveniently used in the lobby rooms of hotels, stations or the like, and in this instance, it is often desirable to lock the back portion of the case, in order to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access thereto when the clerk leaves the case through any cause. To carry out this, the rear wall E has been provided. The rear wall E is of course removable and abuts against the outer edges of the top wall 16, the side walls 15, and the rear edge of the base A. This removable rear locking wall E includes two sections 40 and 41. panels, which are connected together by suitable hinges 42. The lower edges of each of the sections 40 and 41 are provided with depending ears 43, for a purpose which will be hereinafter more fully described.
The means F for holdin the Wall E in position consists of a pair 0 spaced shackles 45 and 46. It can be seen that the shackle 45 is provided for the section 40, While the shackle 46 is provided for the section41, and these two sections are provided with openings 47 for the reception of the shackle. The shackles 45 and 46 are pivotally connected to the base plates 48, and these base plates 48 are set in suit-able recesses 49 which permit the shackles to bev folded flush with the outer edge of the top wall 16, when the removable rear end or wall E is not in position. Lock shoes 50 and 51 are also provided for the lower edge of the wall, and these look shoes are each of the same construction and include a base plate 52 and a right angularly extending lug 53. These lugs 53 are adapted to engage the outer face of the sections 40 and 41. The base portions 52 are provided with slots 54, which receive headed fastening elements 55, which are secured to the lower surface of the base A; This connection of the lock shoes 50 and 51 permits the same to he slid into engagement with the rear edge of the base, when the rear end or looking wall E is not in position. It also can be seen that the lugs 43 engage the lock shoes, when the rear end or the wall is in position in order to prevent the slipping of the wall E sideways from out of engagement with the locking shoes.
When the sections 40 and 41 are placed in position, the shackles 45 and 46 are inserted through the opening 47 and suitable padlocks 56 are placed in the shackles. This prevents the unauthorized removal of the sections.
From the foregoing description, it can be seen that an improved store case has been The sections 40 and 41 consist of two provided, of exceptionally simple and durable construction, which will permit the convenient/handling and sale of collars.
