eHow-CASE.

SPECIFICATION' forming prt of Letters Patent N o. 377.857.4dated February 14, 1888K.

Application filed November 5, 1887. Serial No. 254,382. (No model.)

.ing show-cases; and the object is to provide a show-case more particularly adapted for storing and displaying confectionery, that will hold and display in an attractive manner many varieties of confections,while occupying but a small space.

A further object is to provide a case of this vclass with means to insure the withdrawal of the longestmade candies rst; also, to insure the separation of the small broken particles and dust from the whole pieces, and, still further, to so construct the device that it can be .opened on but one side, to prevent any surreptitious removal of candies. To attain these objects l employ the mechanism illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which-- Figure l is a side view of the device. Fig. 2 is a vertical section of the same. Fig. 3 is a section on plane denoted by line a: x of Fig. 2, showing two of the doors opened. Fig. 4 is a detail view of one of the prismatic jars used. Fig. 5 is a detail side view of a portion of the device, illustrating the operation of the doors. Fig. 6 is a detail view illustrating a form of revolving mechanism.

In the drawings, the letter c denotes the base, which is preferably made of a circular piece of sheet metal, the circumference of which is bounded by an upturned iiange.

b denotes the supporting-spindle, the lower end of which fits into and is supported by aA block of wood, d', is securedin the lower' end of the cylinder, which' acts as a guide to the spindle, and is apiece to which the floor-f of the revolving portion may be attached. This v iioor f is preferably made of a circular piece of sheet metal, and has a downturned flange that lies outside of the' upturned iiange of the base a.

The piece d has an extension 'somewhat smaller in diameter that projects above the cylinder c, and the top of this piece supports the circular shelf g. The shelf g-,isless in diameter than the floor f, has an upturned flange on the edgeA to prevent articles from rolling off, and from the center rises a suitable sup# port, h, upon the top of which is a nest of trays for holding bottles, boxes, or the like. The shelf is also provided with a number of boxes, i, in which bottles may be placed, so as not to be overturned.

The letter j denotes thin metallic partitions that project radially from the central standard, c, and divide'the space between the shelf g and iioor j into anumber of radial chambers. These partitions project outward nearly to the edge of the base at the bottom and for a short distance vertically, and to the edge of the shelf for a distance at the top, 'and gradually' lessen in width from'one portion to the other.

At the top of thecylinder horizontal partitions lc are placed between the vertical partiations, which form covers for the chambersl and bottoms for the chambers m. these partitions 7c openings n are made into the lower chambers for the passage of articles, and these openings may be provided with a cover or may be closed by the bottoms of the glass prismatic jars o, which occupy the Through j upper chambers, m. The front of each of the chambers Z is covered by a glass, Z',- which slopes at the same angle with the edge of the partitions, which are provided with any suitable nish after the glass is put in place.

The doors l), which close the lower part of the chambers l, are' preferably made from sheet metal with the sides turned up to prevent the candy spilling when it comes out. Along the sides of the doors next the flanges a wire, g, is attached, which passes through holes in the door and forms a loop beneath. Bypushing ICO prevent too much of the contents from coming out when the door is opened; andopposite the diaphragm r is a perforated plate, s, placed so as to screen the dust and small broken particles from the stuff when it passes out, this plate s being so secured in place that it can be easily removed to gather up the screenings. I prefer to use eight vertical partitions, this making the device octagonal; but it may be provided with additional partitions to further subdivide the space.

In Fig. 6 I show one method of rotating the device. From the spider b an arm, t, rises and supports a spindle, on one end of which is a friction-roller and on the other a pulley, over which a belt travels to any convenient motor. The friction-roll extends under and bears up against the downturned ilange of the iioorf through an opening in the ilange of the base a. This flange is cut away on one side only, to permit the hand to be thrustunder to open the door by pushing on the wire Q, as

stated. v

When the device is in use, the chambers Z are iilled by passing confectionery through the openings n, and when the doors p are let down a small portion rolls out onto them in a convenient position to be scooped up. Vhen the supply becomes low in any chamber, it is replenished by an addition on top, and as it is drawn out from the bottom it will be seen that the irst-made candy is used first, and not the candy that is last deposited and is on top, as is the case with ordinary confectionery-receptacles. rl`he prismatic `jars can be filled with small candies and bottlesv and boxes placed on the top in the spaces provided, and the whole structure will accommodate a large quantity of goods, while it will occupy but a small space on a table or counter.

I claim as my invention- 1. In combination, a base, a spindle rising from the base, a standard supported by the spindle, and partitions projecting radially from the standard, each space between the partitions being closed on top by a cover, on the bottom by a floor, and in front partly by a glass and partly by a door located below the glass and hinged at its bottom, so as to open outward and downward, the said spaces being contracted at their bottom in front of the doors, all substantially as described, and for the purpose specified.

2. In combination, a base, a spindle rising fromthe base, a standard supported by the base, radial partitions projecting from the standard, shelf1 g, floor f, horizontal partitions k, prismatic jars o, carried in the sockets m, diaphragms fr, for contracting the outlet to the chambers, plates s, for sifting the contents as they pass out, the doors p, with wires q passing through the floor f, and the glass fronts l, substantially as described, and for the purpose set forth.

3. -In a revolving show-case of the withindescribed class, in combination with the radial chambers having an outwardbpening door at the bottom, the inclined diaphragm r, to contract the outlet, substantially as described, and for the purpose specified.

4. In a revolving show case of the withindescribed class, in combination with the radially-arranged chambers, the doors p, hinged at their bottom to the iioor of the structure in such manner as to swing outward and downward in opening, allsubstantially as described, and for the purpose specified.
