2 Claims.

This invention relates to racks especially adapted for the support and display of foodstuffs within show-cases preferably of the refrigerating type, and has for the primary object the provision of a device of this character which may be quickly arranged in a display case and which will attractively display foods thereon and at the same time permit free circulation of air about the foods to prevent spoiling thereof and also tends to maintain the foods moist and which may be readily cleaned and will be durable and efiicient and may be manufactured and sold at a low cost.

With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described and claimed.

For a complete understanding of my invention, referenc is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, in which Figure l is a top plan view illustrating a display rack for foodstuffs constructed in accordance with our invention.

Figure 2 is a perspective view illustrating the supporting frame of the rack wherein certain of the supporting bars are omitted.

Figure 3 is a fragmentary transverse sectional view showing a show-case with the rack installed therein.

Figure 4 is a transverse sectional view illustrating the rack with a supporting tray or plate thereon.

Figure 5 is a perspective view illustrating one of the trays or plates.

Referring in detail to the drawings, the numeral 5 indicates as an entirety a supporting frame consisting of triangular shaped end members 6. Said end members have their apexes integrally connected to a connecting rod I. The other corners of the end members are integrally connected with upper and lower connecting rods 8 and 9. Vertical rods I tie the rods 8 and 9 together. Suitably secured on the upper rod 8 and the rod I is a plurality of relatively spaced supporting rods I I and which are disposed on an inclination when the rack is positioned upon a support owing to the construction of the frame 5.

Underlying the supporting rods I I and secured onto the end members 6 are tie rods I2 which act to reinforce the supporting rods I I and are preferably arranged adjacent the rods 8 and 1.

Stop rods I3 are secured on the ends of the supporting rods and overlie the latter and parallel the rods 8 and I, the purpose of which is to prevent trays or plates I4 from sliding off the supporting rods during the use of the device.

As shown in Figure 3 this device may be readily positioned in a show-case I5 preferably of the refrigerating type so as to slope toward the front of the case. Articles of foodstuff may be arranged on the supporting plates or trays as clearly shown in Figure 3 and indicated by the character I6 so that a free circulation of air may take place thereabout to prevent the foodstuff from spoiling and also it will be seen that the foodstuff thus supported will be attractively displayed within the case, consequently increasing sales.

The rack of the character described can be easily removed from the show-case and cleaned so as to be kept in a sanitary condition, the trays or plates being easily removable.

A device of the character shown and described in detail may be constructed and sold at a very nominal cost and will be durable, eflicient and compact.

It is believed that the foregoing description, when taken in connection with the drawings will fully set forth the construction and advantages of this invention to those skilled in the art to which such a device relates, so that further detailed description will not be required.

Having thus described the invention, what we claim is:

1. A display rack comprising a pair of end members including a straight horizontally arranged bottom bar for resting on a surface, a short vertically arranged end bar having its lower end connected to the rear end of the horizontal bar and a top bar having its rear end connected with the top of the vertical bar and its front end connected with the front end of the bottom bar,

a front bar connecting the front ends of the two end members together, a rear bottom bar connecting the lower rear corners of the two end members together, a top rear bar connecting the upper corners of the two end members together, a plurality of spaced supporting bars paralleling each other and having their rear ends connected with the top and rear bar and the front ends with the front bar.

2. A display rack comprising a pair of end members including a straight horizontally arranged bottom bar for resting on a surface, a short vertically arranged end bar having its lower end connected to the rear end of the horizontal bar and a top bar having its rear end connected with the top of the vertical bar and its front end connected with the front end of the bottom bar, a front bar connecting the front ends of the two end members together, a rear bottom bar connecting the lower rear corners of the two end members together, a top rear bar connecting the upper corners of the two end members together, a plurality of spaced supporting bars paralleiing each other and having their rear ends connected with the top and rear bar and the front ends with the front bar, a pair of brace bars extending under and contacting the sup- 10 porting bars and connected with the top bars of the end members and a pair of stop forming bars one connected with the lower ends of the supporting bars and paralleling the front bar and the other connected with the rear ends of the supporting bars and paralleling the top bar which connects the upper rear ends of the two end members together.
