DISPLAY-RACK.
Specification or Letters iPate'ht.
Patented same, 1908.
Application filed May 1, 1908. Serial No. 430,283.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Momrz MAYER, a Citl'; zen of the United States, residing at the borough of Manhattan, city, county, and State of New York, have invented an Improvement in Display-Racks, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a display rack particularly adapted to exhibit articles of mer chandise in show-windows and other similar places, and in carrying out the invention, I preferably employ a base, an upright member and a platform, the upright member being pivotally connected to the base and the platform being pivotally connected to the upright member in such a manner that the displayrack may be compactly folded up and so that the platform when in position for use may be adjusted to assume diiferent angles to the upright member.
In the drawing, Figure 1 is a front elevation of my improved display rack. Fig. 2 is a central longitudinal elevation of the same. Fig. 3 is a plan view of the parts when folded up. Fig. 4 is a side view of the same in like position, Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the inner'inember set within the base, and Fig. 6 is a detached elevation of the upright member.
Referring particularly to the drawing, 10 designates a bottom member or base which is preferably hollow and is fitted with an inner member 11 in which there are lugs 12 provided with holes 18, the lugs 12 being adapted to pass through suitable slots provided therefor in thetop of the base 10.
14 designates an upright member which is preferably tubular and the lower end of which is provided in one side with a cutaway portion indicated at 15; the sides of the upright member 14, adjacent to that in which the cut-away portion is provided, are apertured as indicated at 16 to receive the pin 17, which also passes through the holes 13 in the lugs 12 of the inner member 11 and by which the said upright member is pivotally connected to the said base and its inner member.
18 designates a platform which may be elliptical in outline as indicated in the drawing or of any other configuration and which is preferably provided with a depending peripheral flange 19. On the under side thereof, the platform 18 is provided with a pair of lugs indicated at 20, in which lugs there are in similar positions, holes or apertures indicated at 21 and 22. In the same sides of the upright 14 in which the holes 16 are provided and at the upper end thereof, there are similar holes indicated at 23 adapted to receive a pin '24 which also passes through the set of holes 21 or the set of holes 22 provided in the lugs 20, depending as will be understood, upon the inclination at which it is desired the platform shall be set, and furthermore'it will also be understood that while I have indicated two pairs of holes, shown respectively at 21 and 22 as "aforesaid, any number of such a series may be employed.
Beneath the platform 18 andbetween the lugs 20, I also employ a stop indicated at 26 and the upper end of the upright 14 is preferably beveled as shown at 25, so that when set in position, the stop 26 rests agalnst the upper edge of the front of the upright 14 and maintains the platform in this position. Also as indicated, the platform 18, in a suitable position therein, may be provided with a tongue 27 cut therein and upturned from the surface thereof, in order that as indicated in dotted lines, Fig. 2, a shoe may be supported by the rack for display purposes.
It will also be understood that while I have shown the rack as particularly adapted to display shoes, it may be used to exhibit other articles of merchandise without departing from the nature and spirit of my invention, and also that the lugs 20 on the underside of the platform, may be riveted or otherwise secured thereto.
From the illustration Fig. 2 in which the base is in a horizontal position and the upright in a vertical position, it will be ap parent that the platform 18 is pivoted to the upright off the center so that there is a preponderance of weight to one side of the upright, overcoming any tendency of the parts to collapse or shut down and this is necessarily accentuated by the weight of the article displayed thereon. The proportions of the parts are so regulated that there is no tendency to overbalance in the platform, only sufficient to overcome any tendency to knock-down.
I claim as my invention:
1. A display rack comprising a base, an upright member pivotally connected to the said base, a platform, means depending from the said platform and adapted to span the upper portion of the said upright member, the said means being provided with a series of oppositely disposed holes and a pin adapted to pass through certain of the said holes, and also through a hole in the said upright member to pivotally connect the said platform and upright member and determine the position assumed by the former when in use.
2. A display rack comprising a base, an
upright pivotally connected to the said base,
a platform, lugs secured to the underside of the said platform and adapted to span said upright and provided With series of holes arranged in pairs, a pin passing through any one pair of the said holes in the said lugs and also through the said upright whereby the said platform is pivotally connected to said upright and the position of the former relatively to the latter is determined, and a stop on the under side of the said platform adapted to bear against the upper edge of the front of the upright to maintain the platform in position.
3. A display rack comprising a base, an upright pivotally connected to the said base,
a platform, lugs secured to the underside of i 7 the said platform and adapted to span the said upright and provided with series of holes arranged in pairs, a pin passing through any one pair of the said holes in the said lugs and also through the said. upright, I
whereby the said platform is pivotally connected to said upright and the position of tTlTdformer relatively to the latter is determined, and a stop located between the said lugs secured to the said platform, the upper 5 tion.
Signed by me this 28th day of April, 1908.
