Referring more in detail to the drawings:

As required, detailed embodiments of the present invention are disclosed herein, however, it is to be understood that the disclosed embodiments are merely exemplary of the invention which may be embodied in various forms. Therefore, specific structural and functional details disclosed herein are not to be interpreted as limiting, but merely as a basis for the claims and as a representative basis for teaching one skilled in the art to variously employ the present invention in virtually any appropriate detailed structure.

In the disclosed embodiment of the present invention, the reference numeral 1 generally designates an article display and storage structure adapted to receive and display articles particularly adapted for personal hygiene use by a plurality of individuals. The article display and storage structure includes a display and storage portion 2 adapted to receive and display articles particularly adapted for personal hygiene use by a plurality of individuals, such as oral spray devices, and the like and a cover member 3 removably mounted on the display and storage portion 2 which has a plurality of walls, as latter described, extending from a base portion and defining a plurality of open top compartments each adapted to receive and support therein respective articles. The walls terminate in an upper deck 4 having a plurality of recesses 5 therein each adapted to receive for storage therein a respective one of a plurality of articles.

The display and storage portion 2 has a base portion 6 defined by side walls 7 and 8 and end walls 9 and 10 suitably connected together as being integrally formed to provide a substantially rigid base portion .6 for the display and storage portion 2.

The walls extending from the base portion 6 defining the plurality of open top compartments which may be arranged in any desired manner. However, the illus- 'trated structure has a bottom wall 11 extending between upper edges of the side walls 7 and 8 and the end walls 9 and 10 thereby closing a lower end of the plurality of compartments. Laterally spaced side walls 12 and 13 and end walls 14 and 15 extend upwardly from the bottom wall 11. The display and storage portion 2 may have any desired number of compartments, however, the illustrated structure includes intermediate walls 16 and 17 extending upwardly from the bottom wall 11 and between the side walls 12 and 13 thereby defining a center compartment 18 and end compartments 19 and 20.

The illustrated end compartments 19 and 20 are particularly adapted for storing a plurality of packages of articles therein. It is desirable to provide access to said end compartment l9.and 20 for easy removal of the packages therein. Therefore, passages 21 and 22 are formed in respective portions of one of the side walls, for example, side wall 12 defining the end compartment l9 and 20 respectively. It is also desirable that the passages 20 and 21 extend the full depth of the end compartments 19 and 20 whereby the last article or package therein may be removed from the respective end compartment.

The end compartments l9 and 20 may be any desired shape in plan and in transverse cross-section. However, the illustrated compartments are generally rectangular in plan and transverse cross-section to accommodate generally rectangular packages 23 of articles, such as a tablet to be used in an oral spray device.

The center compartment 18 may be any desired shape conforming to an article to be received therein and in the illustrated structure, the central compartment 18 is generally cylindrical and generally circular in transverse cross-section to receive an elongated gen- 'erally cylindrical article 24 therein.

The bottom wall 11 has an enlarged portion within the center compartment 18 defining an upper shoulder 25 adapted to support a base end of the elongated arti' cle 24 during storage and display. The bottom wall 11 within the center compartment 18 has a first recess 26 therein defining a shoulder 27 with the first recess 26 being adapted to receive an other end of the elongated article 24 therein and support same on the shoulder 27. The wall 11 also has a second recess 28 within the first recess 26 with the second recess 28 being adapted to receive a cap 29 on the elongated article 24.

The side wall 12 also has a passage 30 therein adapted to permit a projection 31 of the elongated article 24 to extend outwardly from the display and storage portion 2 when the elongated article 24 is received and supported within the first recess 26.

The cover member 3 may be any desired shape sufficient to enclose the elongated article 24 and attachments therefor stored for display in the display and storage portion 2. The illustrated cover member 3 has side walls 32 and 33 positioned adjacent the side walls 12 and 13 respectively of the display and storage portion 2 and end walls 34 and 35 positioned adjacent the end walls 14 and 15 respectively of the display and storage portion 2. The side walls 32 and 33 and the end walls 34 and 35 each have a lower edge engaging and supported on the bottom wall 11. The cover member 3 has a top wall 36 extending between upper edges of the side walls 32 and 33 and the end walls 34 and 35.

It is desirable to provide a gripping portion 37 on the cover member 3, therefore, respective portions of the top wall 36 and the side wall 32 and 33 are extended upwardly to define the gripping portion 37 and an en larged space adapted to receive therein one end of the elongated article 24.

The cover member 3 is preferably transparent to permit easy identification of the articles stored within the article display and storage structure 1 and the cover member 3 is preferably formed of a suitable synthetic resinous material for durability and lightness in weight.

The display and storage portion 2 is also formed of a synthetic resinous material and may be molded for economy in construction. The display and storage portion 2 may be any suitable color as desired.

In using an article display and storage structure constructed as illustrated and described, the cover member 3 is removed from the display and storage portion 2 to permit removal of the elongated article 24 and the preparation thereof for use as by inverting the article so that the cap 29 is received within the second recess 28 within the center compartment 18. A cap 38 is removed from the lower end of the elongated article 24 to permit a suitable tablet taken from one of the packages 23 to be placed in the elongated article 24 and a suitable attachment placed on the projection 31 of the article 24 thereby preparing same for use by an individual.

It is to be understood that while I have illustrated and described one form of my invention, it is not to be limited to the specific form or arrangement of parts herein described and shown.
