J 'M CARTNEY DISPLAY STAND Filed June 5, 1925 gwoewtor w, row-+ .1

Patented Mar. 23, 1926.

UNITE STATES TENT OFFICE.

JOI-IINL. MoCAB/TNEY, OF WELLSTON, OHIO, ASSIGNOR TO I. W. WARDEN, OF VVELLSTON, OHIO.

DISPLAY STAND.

Application filed June 3, 1925. Serial No. 34,709..

To all whom it mag concern Be it known that I, JOHN L. McOAR'rNnY, citizen of the United States, residing at lVellston, in the county of Jackson and 1 State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Display Stands, of which the following is a specification.

The object of my invention is to furnish a novel display-stand comprising a plurality I of vertically-adjustable shelves, carrying hinged leaves adapted to be supported at any degree of: inclination from the horizontal, or in a horizontal or vertical position, as may be desired, in order to please the taste of the user, or to accommodate the stand to the kind of articles of merchandise to' be displayed thereon, or to the space which the stand is intended to occupy.

The invention, in its preferred form, is disclosed in the accompanying drawing, in

which like reference characters denote corresponding structural parts throughout the several views. Briefly described:

Figure 1 is a view in perspective of my display-stand Figure 2 in a view in end elevation thereof, showing the hinged leaves supported in an inclined position;

Figure 3 is also a view in end elevation, but showing two pairs of leaves supported in a horizontal position and another pair in a vertical position; and

Figure 4 is a fragmentary detail View of one of the uprights and the means for supporting the leaves in adjusted position.

Referring, now, in detail to the drawing:

1, 1 designate two uprights, preferably of metal, which rise from bases 2, 2, of any preferred form, and which may be provided with rollers or casters, so that the stand may be easily moved about from place to place.

Removably supported, by any suitable means, upon the top of said uprights is a shelf 3. Beneath the shelf 3 is a series of shelves 4, three being shown in the drawing, as an example, which are, desirably, of progressively increasing width, as shown, from the top shelf 3 downward. The standards 1, 1 project through the shelves 4, which are vertically adjustable thereon. Each of the shelves 4 may be provided with a pair of shoes 5, which bear against opposite faces of the standards 1, 1, and which slide on said faces, when the shelves are it raised or lowered.

Each of the shelves 3 and 4 carries, longitudinally, a pair of leaves 6, 6, which are secured to the shelf by hinges 7. Each of the leaves 6 carries, toward its free longifi l tudinal edge, a guard-rail 8, which may be suitably spaced from the leaf by brackets 9 secured thereto.

- The leaves 6 are adapted to be supported in adjusted position at any degree of inclination from the horizontal (as shown in Figs.

1 and 2), or in a horizontal position (see the leaves of the upper shelf 8 in Fig. 8), or in a. vertical position (see the leaves of the lowermost shelf 4 in Fig. 3). To this end, 74} I provide, in connection with each pair of leaves carried by each shelf 3 and 4, two vertically-positioned slide-bars 10, 10, which are disposed face to face, as shown. Each bar is provided with a beveled or down. wardly-inclined end 11, which is adapted to bear against the under surface of the adjacent leaf 6 to support the latter in adjusted position. Each bar 10 may beprovided, at its lower longitudinal edge, with an upward-projecting, hook-shaped finger 12, in which the associated and complemen tal bar rests and slides. Each bar is, further, provided with a longitudinally-extending slot 13, and through the two registering slots in each pair of bars 10, 10 and through one of the bolt-holes 15 in the standard 1 passes a set-screw 14. These set-screws function not only to hold the two bars in adjusted position, as is obvious, but to support the shelves 4 in any position of raised or lowered adjustment on the standards 1, 1. To adjust the leaves 6, it is only necessary to loosen the set-screws and move the slide-bars 10, 10 of each pair in opposite directions, in a rectilinear path, and then tighten up the-set-screws.

The display-stand may be utilized not only to support and display articles of merchandise upon the shelves 3 and 4, but also upon the leaves 6, the articles being prevented from falling off the latter by the guard-rails 8.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters-Patent of the United States is:

1. A display-stand comprising uprights, a plurality of shelves slidable upward and downward on said uprights, a leaf hinged to each longitudinal edge of each shelf, and means for supporting said leaves at any de gree of downward inclination from the horizontal, or in a horizontal or depending vertical position, said means comprising a pair of slide-bars for the leaves of each shelf, the slide-bars of each pair being rectilinearly movable in opposite directions.

2. A displaystand comprising uprights, a plurality of shelves slidable upward and downward on said iiiprights, a leaf hinged to each longitudinal edge of each shelf, and means for supporting said leaves at any degree of downward inclination from the horizontal, or in a horizontal or depending vertical position, said means comprising a pair of slide-bars for the leaves of each shelf, the slide-bars of each pair being rectilinearly movable in opposite directions, and each bar being provided with a beveled end adapted to contact with the under surface of the adjacent leaf.

3. A display-stand comprising uprights, a plurality of shelves slidable upward and downward on said uprights, a leaf hinged to each longitudinal edge of each shelf, means for supporting said leaves at any degree of downward inclination from the horizontal, or in a horizontal or depending vertical position, said means comprising a pair of slide-bars for the leaves of each shelf, the slide-bars of each pair being rectilinearly movable in opposite directions, and means passing through said slide-bars of each pair for holding them in adjusted position.

l. A display-stand comprising uprights, a plurality of shelves slidable upward and downward on said uprights, a leaf hinged to the free longitudinal edge of each shelf, means for supporting said leaves at any degree of downward inclination from the horizontal, or in a horizontal or dependingvertical position, said means comprising a pair of slide-bars for the leaves of each shelf, the slide-bars of each pair being rectilinearly movable in opposite directions and being provided with registering slots, and means passing through said slots for holding said bars in adjusted position.

5. A display-stand comprising uprights, a plurality of shelves slidable upward and downward on said uprights, a leaf hinged to each longitudinal edge of each shelf, and means for supporting said leaves at any degree of downward inclination from the hori zontal, or in a horizontal or depending vertical position, said means comprising a pair of slide bars for the leaves of each shelf, the slide-bars of each pair being rectilinearly movable in opposite directions, and each slide-bar having, at its lower edge, an upward bent, hoolcshaped finger in which the adjacent bar rests and slides.

In testimony whereof, I hereunto allix my signature.

JOHN L. MGCARTNEY.
