Referring to Figures 1 t04 of the drawings the rack includes a pair of,reotangul ar,base members 1, 2and each thereof is of rectangular .contour. The width and lengthof each base member can be as desired. The base members are ofglike-form and-construction.

Each base, member i 7 orm d. W th. WQ spaced sets of spaced sockets disposed ahthe longitudinal median of a, base member and openingat the upper face of the latter; One set of sockets provided ir the baselrnember .1

is indicated at? and the other setof sockets at 4. One set of sockets formed in the base mem-- ber,2 is indicated at 5 vand theother set at fi.

The distance between the inner sockets of each pair of-sets of sockets, is greaterthanthe distance between the socketsofa set. 'i w The rack includes four pairs .of vertically disposed, end supports. Two pairs of=end supports are associated with a base member. The end supports of one pair, are: indicated at 7, 8, those of another pairat 9, 10, those of another pair atll, 12 and those of the other p ir at 13,144, The suppor s 111- and 14 provide the outer supports, of} said pairsof supports and the supports-8, 9', 12 and 13 form the inner. supports of said'pairsof supports. One pair of supports. is. generally. indioated at A, another pair at B, anotherpair atQ and the remainingpair. at D Thesnpp rtsS, 9 of the, air of supports B! Opp se each other. hesupport'sE, l8 transparent ports C, D, oppose each other. Each of the supports is square in cross section. Each support has its mner edge formed with spaced,

transversely extending grooves 15. The

5 grooves of the support 7 oppose the grooves of the support 8. The grooves of the support 9 oppose the grooves o the support 10. The

grooves of the support 11 oppose the grooves of the support 12 and the grooves of the support 13' oppose the grooves of the support 15.

. Each support has its lower end provided with a tenon 16 which is inset with respect to the inner edge of the support. The tenons 16 of the pairs of supports A, B engage in the sockets 5, 6 respectively, and the tenons of the pairs of supports C, D engage in the sockets 5, 6 respectivelyof the base member 2. The tenons of the supports A, B engage in the base member 1. The pairs of'supports A, C o pose each other. The pairs of supports D oppose each other. 1

' The rack includes two sets of superposed slats. The slats of one set coact with the slats of the other set to provide supporting means for displaying the articles of merchandise. The slats of one set are indicated at 17 and the slats of the other set at 18. Each of the slats is of rectangular transverse cross section. The slats 17 are supported by the walls of the grooves in the pairs of supports A, C,

and the slats 18 are supported by the walls of the grooves of the pairs of'supports B, D.

Th'e'supports of 'each'pair are arranged in spaced relationand the grooves 15 of the slats '35 7, 8 align with the grooves 15 ofthe supports 11, 12. The slats. areselectively positioned in the aligning grooves of a pair of supports and by this arrangement the slats ofeach set can selectivel positioned at diflerent'supe osed spad relations, with respect to eac other. V I

1 "When the slats 17 have been selectively positioned in the pairs of supports A, C and when the slats 18 have been selectively positioned'in the pair of supports 0, D, each pair of s'a ports is adjustably'clamped to said y binding screws 19 which "extend through one of the supports of a pair and engage m the other support of the pair. 7 '50 Each set of slats provides means whereby the su ports of each pair can be connected by their tenonsto a base member-in adjusted spaced relation relative to each other and said two spaced sets of slats in each member permit of the two pair of sup rts connected therewith being adjusted in iflerent spaced relafienswith respect to each other. The slats con led to two pairs of supports can be arr at difierent heights-with respect to to the slats coupled to the other two pair of sup- 7 ortheslats of one set can align with the slatsoftheetherset.

In the modified form shown in Figures 5 4:67, the rack includes a pair-of rectangular 235 members 26,21 and the former is provided with a pair of spaced sockets 22, 23, and the latter with a pair of spaced sockets 24, 25. The sockets open at the upper face of the base membersand are disposed in the longitudinal median thereof. Projecting'above the base member 20 is a pair of vertically disposed supports 26, 27 provided on their lower ends with tenons 28, 29 which extend into the socket-23 of the base member 20, and are secured therewith by the (i holdfast devices. .The support 26, as well as the support 27 is provided with a verticall disposed row of spaced, transversely exten ing openings 31. The openings of one support align with the openings in the other support. Extending upwardly from the base member 21 is a pair of vertical supports 32, 33 and which are provided at their lower ends with tenons 34, 35 respectively whichengpge in the sockets 24, 25 respectively of the ase member 1. Holdfast devices 36 are provided for securing the supports32, 33 to the base member 21. The support 32, as well as the support 33 is provided with a vertical row of N spaced openings 34. The openings 34 in the support 32 align with the openings 34 in the support 33. j

The supports 26, 27 are arranged in op,- posedspaced relation. The supports 32, 33 it are arranged in opposed spaced relation. The support 26 opposes the support 32. The support 27 opposes the support 33. The openings 31 in the support 26 align with the openings 34 in the support 32. T e openings 1% 31 in the support 27 align with the opening! 34 in the support 33.

Two sets of slats are employed in connection with the form shown in Figure 5 and the said two sets of slats perform the same-as function as the slats 17, 18. One set of slate forming a part of the form shown in Figure 5 is indicated'at 37 andthe other set at 38. The slats 37 are selectively positioned aligning openings of the supports 26, 32

the slats 38 are selectively positioned aligning openings of the supports 27, 33.115.

The two sets of slatsprovide suppo means for the article of merchandise, as w as displaying the latter. The slats 37,38 can, '1

be ad usted to align with each other or the slats of one set can be positioned above the slats of theother set. i i It is thought that the many advantages of a display rack, in accordance with this invention and for the purpose set forth can'be l readily understood, and although the pm ferred embodiment of the invention is as lustrated and described, yet it is to beunderstoodthat changes in the details of construe M' tion can be had which fall within the scope of the invention as claimed. i

What I claim is:--

1. A display rack comprising a pair of op posed, spaced, end base members, each um I!!! member provided with two spaced sets of spaced sockets opening at the upper face of the member, a pair of opposed, spaced, vertical supports selectively positioned in the sockets of each of said sets of sockets, the supports of each pair having their inner edges provided with coacting grooves to form superposed slat supporting means, two sets of slats, each set of slats coacting with two pairs of supports andselectively positioned in the superposed supporting means at the inner edges of the supports of the said two pairs of supports and means for clamping each pair of supports to a slat.

2. A display rack comprising a pair of opposed, spaced end base members, two spaced pairs of vertical supports carried by each base member, each base member provided with means whereby each pair of supports can be adjusted relatively to each other and the supports of each of said pair of supports adjustable relatively to each other, two sets of slats, each pair of supports provided with means for selectively positioning the slats of the set of-slats therein, and means for clamping the supports of each pair to the slats when pos1- tioned in a pair of supports.

3. A display rack comprising a pair of spaced, opposed end base members each provided with a pair of sockets arranged in spaced relation and opening at the upper face of the member, a pair of vertical supports extending into the sockets of each base member and fixedly secured to the latter, each of said supports formed with a vertical row of spaced openings, the supports carried by one base member opposing the supports carried by the other base member, and slats selectively positioned in the openings of the pair of opposed supports.

In testimony whereof, I aflix my signature hereto.
