SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 442,836, dated December 16, 1890.
Application filed August 2, 1890. Serial No. 360,765. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, SIGMUND TANZER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Cumberland, in the county of Alleghany and State of Maryland, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Show-Cases; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to show-stands, and is an improvement in show-stands for ribbons and like articles; and it consists in certain improvements in construction and combination of parts.
The best form in which I have contemplated embodying my invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and the said invention is fully disclosed in the following specification and claims.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective of my complete showcase. Fig. 2 is a sectional view showing the method of securing the corner-posts to the top and bottom of the case. Fig. 3 is a vertical section, and Fig. 4c is a transverse section, of the case.
The case is made so as to be readily taken to pieces for storage or shipment, and yet when put together forms a firm and rigid case. My case is therefore practically a knockdown case, the exterior casing of which is a knockdown casing, and the interior shelving of which is removable and may be termed knockdown shelving. The exterior part of the casing consists of the top A, the bottom A, the corner-posts B B B B, and the doors 0 (J C C. The top and bottom are detachably secured to the ends of the posts B by screws or other preferred means, and the doors, which are glazed, are each hinged to a post or pivotally mounted on pintles secured in the top and bottom, as may be preferred. Each door is provided with a series of shelves 0, which are made adjustable to different heights. This adjustability I secure by providing the shelf-supports with two notched pieces (I, the projections of which are opposed to each other, with at least the thickness of the shelf between. The shelf at each end is provided with a tenon of the width of the space between the deepest portions of the notches. The shelf is transferred from one plane to another by turning the same until it stands edgewise between the notched pieces, when it can be raised to the point desired and secured by turning it to a horizontal position upon the projections beneath it.
The interior I prefer to construct as follows: Inside of each corner-post the top and bottom are each provided with the angular cleats g, and four 'posts F, provided on their opposing sides with notched strips 6, similar to the strips 61 on the doors, are made to engage with these cleats. A square standard, preferably hollow, is placed centrally in the case, having its sides provided with notches, the projecting shoulders corresponding with the projections of the strips 6 011 the posts F. The shelves E are provided at each end with a tenon to engage the notched pieces e, and are each of such a width that the back will engage one of the sides of the central standard D and rest upon one of the projections thereon, the shelves between the adjacent corners of the posts F and the central standard D being mitered or made inclined to form close joints. IVhen the central standard D, posts F, and shelves E are put in. proper position, the standard and posts are held in their respective positions and brace the outer casing, making it very firm and rigid.
When it is desired to take the case to pieces, it is only necessary to remove the eight screws in top and bottom, when the different parts can easily be separated and packed in a comparatively small space.
Each of the doors 0 is provided with a hasp c or other securing means.
I prefer to make as many shelves E on each side of the show-case as there are shelves 0 on the door and have them arranged on a level with the shelves of the door adjacent thereto.
I prefer to mountmy show-case so that it can be revolved to facilitate access to the interior through the different doors. I do this by providing a base G, having rollers-g and a central pivot 9 This case has been employed for holding ribbons, and has been found of great convenience in use. Rolls of the different kinds of ribbons are placed upon the shelves, as
samples upon the doors, while the bulk of the stock of the varieties thus exposed are placed in rear thereof upon the corresponding shelf E.
\Vhat I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. In a show-case, the combination, with the separable exterior casing, of the knockdown structure within said casing and shelving supported thereby, substantially as described.
2. In a show-case, the combination, with an exterior casing having doors on each side provided with shelving, of the knockdown interior shelving comprising a series of shelves on each side of the casing, substantially as described.
3. The herein-described show-case, having doors upon its four sides provided with adjustable shelving, and the adjustable interior shelving corresponding tothe door-shelving, each of said interior shelves having a support for the rear of the same, substantially as described.
4:. In a show-case, the combination, with the exterior casing, of the four posts and the central standard withinthe said casing and the interior shelves, substantially as described.
5. In a show-case, the combination, with the exterior casing, of four posts and a central standard within said casing, and the shelving adjustably supported on the said posts and standard, substantially as described.
6. In a show-case, the combination, with the exterior casing having the top and bottom provided with the angular cleats, of the knockdown interior shelving consisting of the four posts, the central standard, and the shelving engaging the posts and standard, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
SIGMUND TANZER.
