\VILLIAM A. CAMPBELL, OF HYDE PARK, ILLINOIS.

SAM PLE-HOLDER.

SFEGIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 399,017, dated March 5, 1889.

Application filed October 6, 1888.

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that 1, WILLIAM A. CAMPBELL, of Hyde Park, in the county of Cook and State of-lllinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sample-Holders; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

This invention relates to a novel device in the nature of a sample-holder for wall-paper and other similar articles, adapted for the convenient insertion of a small piece of sample of the wall-paper or other article and to sustain the same upon a shelf orelsewhere in position convenient for inspection.

A holder for samples embodying my invention embraces as its main or essential features an upright frame provided atits bottom with a flathorizontal plate or wing adapted to sustain the frame in an upright position and .a flat plate over or about which the sample of paper is placed or folded, and which is adapted to be inserted in guide-grooves in the frame, whereby the sample is held smooth or flat, and is sustained in position convenient for inspection. In the use of the holder thus constructed for wallpaper samples the holder will be supported upon a shelf containing rolls of wall-paper by inserting the horizontal wing or plate at the lower part of the frame beneath the ends of the rolls of paper upon the shelf, so that the frame will stand upright in front of the ends of the rolls in a manner readily understood. Samples of *all-paper have commonly been displayed heretofore by placing the small fragments of the paper over or across the end or ends of a roll or rolls of paper upon a shelf. The samples thus displayed are not only difficult to properly arrange, but are seldom held fiat,and show but a small portion of the paper in a manner to enable its appearance or design to be easily seen. My holder made as above described affords a means of quickly and easily placing the sample in position, atthe same time holding the sample perfectly flat and unwrinkled, so that it presents the same appear ance as when hung upon the wall. Itis to be understood, however, that the sample-holder fierin-l No. 287,431. (No model.)

herein illustrated may be used for other purposes than the display of wall-paper samples as, for instance, samples of cloth or other flexible material may be similarly placed in the holder for convenience of inspection.

The invention consists in the matters hereinafter described, and pointed out in the appended claims.

As illustrated in the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of the holder complete with a sample inserted therein. Fig. 2 is av perspective view of the main part or frame of the holder with the sample and the plate about which the sample is wrapped removed. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the said plate removed from the holder or frame. Fig. 4. is a rear view of the plate shown in Fig. 3. Fig. 5 is a vertical crosssection of the holder complete, taken upon line 5 5 of Fig. 1. Fig. 6 is a horizontal section of the same, taken upon line 6 (3 of Fig. 1.

As illustrated in said drawings, A is a metal frame arranged to stand in a vertical position and provided at its side margins with two guide-grooves, a. a, and having at its bottom a flat horizontal rearwardly-projecting plate or wing, A Said'wing A is intended for supporting the fram'e'in a vertical position, and

in the use of the holder can be inserted beneath rolls of paper upon a shelf, so as to support the main part of the frame in a vertical position against or near the front ends of the rolls in a manner readily understood. In the particular construction of the holder herein illustrated the frame A is made of sheet metal, the main part thereof consisting of a single piece of metal having its side margins, J: A, bent forwardly to form vertical grooves a. a, and a part or wing, A consisting of a piece of sheet metal, attached at its front margins to the lower edge of the piece forming'the main part of the frame, and having its mar ginal part a bent upwardly in front of the said main partof the frame, so as to form a horizontal groove, 0/, extending along the bottom of the frame.

B is a flat piece of sheet metal around or over which the paper sample C is placed. Said plate B, together with the sample thereon, is held in the frame A by being inserted in the grooves o. 0. at the sides of the frame, in

the manner clearlyillustrated in Fig. 1. The upper edge of the said plate B is preferably bent forwardly and downwardly to form a flange, b, which affords a hold for the fingers in drawing said plate B out of the grooves of the frame A. In inserting the plate B its lower end is preferably thrust downwardly into the bottom groove, a, of the frame, and the said plate is desirably made of such height that the flange b will overlap the ends of the inturned edges A A of the plate, so that the said inwardly-bent parts A A,the upturned part a and the flange 1) form a border or frame surrounding the sample, as clearly shown in Fig. 1. The paper. sample is placed or wrapped over the plate B in the manner clearly shown in Figs 3 and 4, the main part of the paper being stretched smoothly over the plate, and its edges being folded flat against the back of the plate, as clearly illustrated in Fig. at. After the sample has been thus folded over the plate B, the plate, with the sample thereon, is thrust into the guide grooves of the frame A, when the paper will be held smoothly upon the plate, and will thus present a perfectly flat appearance.

The sample in the holder may be readily changed by withdrawing the plate 13, removing the sample therefrom, and folding a new sample upon the plate in a manner readily understood.

As far as the main features of my invention are concerned, a holder comprising a frame provided with a horizontal wing to sustain it win an upright position and having guide grooves adapted to contain a plate about which the sample is Wrapped may be made of sheet metal in the manner illustrated or in any other manner .found convenient or desirable. The particular construction illustrated, wherein the entire article is made or formed from three pieces of sheet metal, is of great advantage in point of simplicity and cheapness of construction, and this particular construction is in itself herein specifically claimed as a separate improvement.

I claim as my invention' 1. A holder for samples, comprising a frame provided with a horizontal plate or Wing for supporting the frame in the vertical position and with guide-grooves, and a sample-holding plate adapted for insertion in said guidegrooves, substantially as described.

2. A holder for samples, comprising a frame provided with a horizontal plate or wing for supporting the same in a vertical position and with guide-grooves upon three of its sides, and a sample-holding plate adapted for insertion in said grooves and provided with a flange on one of its margins, substantially as described.

3; A holder for samples, consistingof avertical frame provided with a horizontal part or wing, said frame consisting of a piece of sheet metal bent inwardly at its opposite edges to form two guide-grooves, and the wing consisting of asecond piece of metal bent upwardly at its front edge and secured to the piece of sheet metal forming the frame, and a metal plate adapted for insertion into the guide-grooves of the frame, substantially as described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

WILLIAM A. CAMPBELL.
