display form. The plate i3 is of the same diameter as the extended portion IB and as the inside diameter of the flange 6 so as to lit closely within said ange when the parts are brought together as in Fig. 3. In such assembly, the outside diameter of the neck 9 is flush with the outer surface of the ange t so that all of said parts cooperate properly. The plate i3 and the block I I are formed with an axial hole l'i through which the pivot 'l extends when the head 2 is assembled on the body or torso i.

A detent i8 which may be in the form of a pin driven through a hole in the plate li and into the block 3 projects upwardly above said plate 4 at a distance from the flange 5 and from. the pivot 'l (Fig. 3). An arcuate series of holes I9 is formed through the plate i3 and into the lower end of the neck 9 to receive-the detent i8 in the different adjusted positions of the head about j the axis of the neck. Thus, the head Will be prevented from turning accidentally from any adjusted position in which it may be placed; and the head may be easily turned to different ad-` justed positions, as desired, by simply raising the head out of engagement With 'the detent i8, turning the head to the selected position, and then reengaging the head with the detent i8.

The adjustable pivotal connections for securing the arms to the form and permitting the arms to be moved to and retained in different adjusted positions to produce a more pleasing effect than would be obtainable by use of a form having rigidarms, are illustrated in Figs. 7 to 1i), inclu sive. As shown, a block 20 of wood or other appropriate material is embedded in the body or torso l at the side of each shoulder. The block may be rigidly secured in position by glue or cement or other fastening means, A metallic plate 2l is attached to the outer side of the block 20 by removable and replaceable fasteners- 22 and covers, guards, and protects the adjacent portion of the shoulder of the body or torso I, i

and has its edges flush with the slightly extended portion of the shoulder for which the arm 23 is provided. A screw bolt 24 extends through i a bracket 25, spring washer 25, and through` the block 2li, and is screwed through a threaded hole in a bar or nut 2 attached to the block 2i] by fasteners 28. 'I'he screw bolt 24 clampingly ,holds the bracket 25 in any adjusted position to which said bracket may be turned, and may be loosened to permit the bracket to be'turned to different adjustments, and then tightened to hold the bracket in such adjustments. The arms of the bracket 25 are formed with alined holesI 29.

'I'he shoulder attaching end of the arm 23 has a block 30 embedded .therein and attached by any appropriate attaching means. The block 3U has a slot 3| therethrough closed at the inner side by a strip 32 of wood or the like attached to the block by fasteners 33. A plate 34 having a slot 35 therein registering with the slot 3l in the block 30 is attached to said block by removable and replaceable fasteners 36. An attaching pin 31 is secured to the block 3U by a fastener 38 (Fig. 8) and projects into the slot 3l in position to pass through the holes 29 in the bracket 25 when the `arm is applied to the body or torso l, as shown in Fig. 7. Thus, the angle of inclination of the arm 23 will be determined by the position of the bracket 25, as should be understood by reference to Fig. 1.

It is now apparent that the brackets 25 are independently and relatively adjustable so as to support the arms 23 in diierent adjustments y factorily and economically.

for attaching the hands to the arms in different positions to permit better and more pleasing adjustments of the device for display purposes.

Assho'vm, a block 39 is embedded in the Wrist` end of each arm and retained therein by gluey or cement or other appropriate fastening means. A tube 46 is embedded in the center of the block 39 and has its outer end open adjacent to a hole through the centerI of a plate 5i. i The plate fiiis attached to the block 39 by removable and re- Y 'l0 provided with means j j l placeable fasteners d2, and has an outwardly f extended circumferential flange 43 the outer surface of which is even with and in continuation of the outer surface of the adjacent Wrist v portion of the arm 23 to whichit is attached.

The Wrist end of the hand 44 hasI a screw bolt t5 embedded therein and projecting axially or centrally beyond the end thereof. and screwed into a plug 46 which clamps a plate 41 against the wrist end of the hand 4s. The bolt t5 is held from turning by a pin or nail i8 extending through a hole therein and .embedded in the Wrist end of the hand 4. The plug 46 slides thro-ugh the hole in the plate 4I `that opens into the tube lill; and, when the parts are properly assembled, a reduced extension $9 on the Wrist end of the hand 4l! and the plate 41 nt within the'iiange' 43 so' that said flange is flush and even with adjacent outer surfaces of the arm 23 and the Wrist of the hand 44. A resilient split ring 50 is mounted in a circumferential groove 5I in the plug 436, and is compressible and expansible. As shown, the ring' 5B is attached tothe plug (i6 by a rivet 52 which preventsdetachment of the ring 59 from said plug. When the ring 58 is within the tube 4G, it expands and frictionally engages against said tube 4E) with suiicient pressure to support the hand t4 in proper connection with the arm 23 andto hold the hand in any of the bolt d5. This connection permits the hand to be turned about the axis ofthe wrist thereoi` and about the axis of the adjacent end of the arm 23 to positions required for graceful postures of the display form. The `hand may be entirely detached from the arm ify desired (Fig. 12).

It should now be apparent that this invention and the different parts thereof attain all of their intended objects andpurposes eiliciently, satis The construction and arrangement of the parts and the materials composing said parts may be varied as desired Without departure from the nature and principle of the invention dened by the' appended claims.
