1 Claim.

The present invention relates to display stands, and has special reference to display stands for displaying packages of gum, candies and other articles in front of the checking-out counters of Super Markets.

The principal object of the invention is to provide a display stand of this character which is simple in construction, may be easily assembled and collapsed for shipping purposes, and which is adapted to display a large quantity of articles to the best advantage.

The several features of the invention, whereby this and other objects may be attained, will be readily understood from the following description and accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a view in perspective of my improved display stand in its preferred form;

Fig. 2 is a similar view with certain parts removed;

Fig.3 is a detail side view of one of the panels employed in the stand;

Fig. 4 is a sectional plan View, taken substantially on the line 4-4 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 5 is a view in perspective of the front shelf section of the stand;

Fig. 6 is a side view of the parts of the stand shown in Fig. 2;

Fig. 7 is a similar view but with the parts partially folded or collapsed;

Fig. 8 is a sectional elevation taken on the line 8-8 of Fig. 6;

Fig. 9 is a sectional plan View, taken on the line 9-9 of Fig. 8;

Fig. 10 is a view corresponding substantially to Fig. 6 of a modified form;

Fig. 11 is a similar view but with the parts shown in folded or collapsed position; and

Fig. 12 is a sectional plan view taken on the line I 2-42 of Fig. 10.

The stand illustrated in Figs. 1 through 9 of the drawings comprises two frames 2 each of which is made up of standards 4 that are in the.

2 frames. The brace bars of each pair are pivotal- 1y connected intermediate their ends by means of a rivet 20. The lower ends of the brace bars are pivotally secured to the'standards 4 by means of rivets 22, and their upper ends are secured to the standards by means of removable rivets or bolts 24. The brace bars are also secured to the support bars it by means of removable rivets or bolts 26.

Viewing Figs. 2 and 6 it will be apparent that the brace bars l8 securely hold the frames in position, and through the support bars I6 hold the shelves in the two frames in position so that a firm and strong construction is provided.

To fold or collapse the portion of the standard shown in Figs. 2 and 6, it is merely necessary to remove the rivets or bolts 24 connecting the upper ends of the brace bars [8 to the frames and the removable rivets or bolts 26 securing the brace bars to the support bars l6, whereupon the shelves may be easily folded and the frames brought toward each other as indicated in Fig. '7, which shows the frames partially collapsed. Spring washers may be employed with the pivot rivets and bolts to prevent looseness of parts.

When the frame and shelves are opened and secured by the brace bars as shown in Figs. 2 and 6, a flanged tray 28 may be positioned on the top of the cross-members 6 of the frames and secured in place by screws or other suitable means.

When the side frames 2 and the associated shelves have thus been assembled, the front section of the stand may be attached thereto. As shown, the front section of the stand comprises a frame 30 having standards 32 that are connected at their upper and lower ends by cross-members 34. Between the standards 32 are secured shelves 36 by means of rivets 38, the shelves being inclined downwardly and forwardly. The front frame 30, with its associated shelves, is placed in a downwardly and forwardly inclined position in front of the side frames 2, and is secured in position by means of panels 40 which have flanges t2 that are detachably secured by screws or bolts 44 to the standards 32 of the front frame and the adjacent standards 4 of the side frames.

With this construction, it will be apparent that my improved stand is capable of attractively dis-'- playing to the best advantage a maximum amount of merchandise on three sides thereof. The stand, although of simple construction, may be easily and quickly assembled and maybe easily folded or collapsed for shipping purposes. Also, upon 3 bolting two of the stands back to back a foursided island display is provided which can be placed at any advantageous part of the store. By attaching a frame of shelves corresponding to the front frame 38 to the rear of the stand by means of panels the same way that the front frame is attached, .a four-sided display is ,provided. The panels may be conveniently utilized for displaying advertising matter. Thus my improved stand is particularly adapted for use in front of the checking-out counters of Super Markets, but may be used to advantage in other retail stores carrying small articles of merchandise. Upon removing the frontsection, the panels and the top tray and collapsing :the side sections a and shelves, the stand may be conveniently packed for shipment, and the stand may Joe-easily assembled by the storekeeper.

In the form illustrated in Figs. 10, 11 and 12, instead of two support bars [6 being provided at each side of the stand ior'respectively supporting the rear portions of the two sets of shelves, a single support bar 46 is provided at each side of the stand to which the rear ends of both sets of shelves are pivotally secured-by means of rivets 48. In this form the support bars and shelves are held by means of pairs of brace bars 50 at opposite sides of the stand. The bars of each pair are pivotally secured together and to theassociated support "bar '45 by means of a bolt 52. The lower end of the brace bars *50 of each pair are pivotally connected to the lower ends of the side frames by means of rivets 54 and the upper ends of the bars are connected with the side 7 frames by means of removable bolts 56.

What I claim is:

In a display stand of the class described, two frames each comprising a pair of standards arranged side by side and spaced apart, a plu rality of shelves placed one above the other between the standards of each frame and pivotally secured to the standards at .points located between the front and rear thereof, support bars between which the rear portions of the shelves of each frame extend and to which the shelves are pivotally connected, diagonal pairs of brace bars arranged at opposite sides of the frames with the brace barsof each pair pivotally connected intermediate their ends, pivotal connections between the lower ends of said brace bars and the lower end portions of said frames, detachable-connections between the upper ends of said brace bars and the upper end portions of said frames, pivotal connections between said brace bars and the lower end-portions of said support bars, and detachable connections between the upper portions of said brace bars and saids'uppor't bars, whereby upon releasing said detachable connections the support bars maybe moved to c turn the shelves into folded condition and the frames may be brought together to collapse the stand.
