ROBERT E. HARPER, OF NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE.

DISPLAY-RACK FOR, CHAIRS.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed March 5, 1910.

Patented Oct. 11, 1910.

Serial No. 547,535.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ROBERT E. HARPER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Nashville, in the county of Davidson and State of Tennessee, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Display- Racks for Chairs; 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.

This invention relates to display racks especially adapted for rocking chairs, although it may be also used for other chairs and articles, and has for its object the production of a rack which will be simple and strong in construction, inexpensive to manufacture, and which will enable the articles being displayed to be readily detached from the rack.

With these objects in view the invention consists in the novel details of construction and arrangement of parts more fully hereinafter disclosed and particularly pointed out in the claims.

Referring to the drawings forming a part of this specification in which like parts are designated by like numerals in all the views :Figure 1, is a perspective view of a rack made in accordance with my invention; Fig. 2, is a sectional elevational view illustrating the use as well as the construction of the invention; and, Fig. 3, is a sectional view of a detail.

1 represents the ends of any suitable base which may be provided with rollers and having a cross piece 3 extending between its ends, as shown. At about the middle of the cross piece 3 is an upright 4 forming with the cross piece 3 an inverted T-shaped brace or bottom piece on which the rockers 5 or other portion of the article to be displayed may rest.

The piece 3 is preferably secured under and to the piece 4 by suitable fastenings and rising from the end portions 1 of the base are standards 7, as shown. The said uprights are further braced by the inclined pieces 10, suitably secured to the end pleces 1 and to the uprights 7, as will be readily understood. Across the end pieces and extending parallel with the pieces 3 and 4. are V-shaped or angular holding pieces 15 into the angles of which the ends 16 of the rockers may fit, as best illustrated in Fig. 2. The upper portion of the uprights may be provided with one or more frames consisting of the end pieces 17 and angular V-shaped cross pieces 18, similar in allrespects to the pieces 15 and for a similar purpose. Between the above end pieces 17 of these frames are cross pieces 22 to which are suitably, attached the vertically disposed pieces 23, and the screws 20 provided with the wing nuts 21 pivot said pieces 22 and 23 to the uprights 7. Suitable fastenings '24 firmly bind the end pieces 17 to the cross pieces 24 and cause all the parts to swing together, as illustrated in dotted lines in Fig. 2. 30 represents stops to limit the angular movement of said top frame, and 22, Fig. 1, are holes in the uprights 7 in which the top frame may be pivoted, if desired.

The operation of the rack will be apparent from the above, but may be briefly summarized as follows If rocking chairs are placed in the rack, as illustrated in Fig. 2, the extreme forward ends of the rockers will snugly fit in the angle of the pieces 15, and 18, as shown; while the rear end of the rockers will rest upon the cross piece 4: at the bottom and upon the cross piece 23 at the top of the rack. In this position, the chairs are firmly held in place, being slightly inclined forward so as to be pleasing to the view, and at the same time, they may be readily removed from the rack when desired. The chairs resting 011 the upper frame may be placed rather higher than is ordinarily done, thereby utilizing space which is ordinarily lost and when it is desired to remove one or more of the same, the upper frame may be readily tipped, as indicated in dotted lines, so as to render the chairs more easily removed. 01' it may be held in this tipped position in order to better show off the contents of the rack.

The parts may be so put together that they may be readily disassembled for shipping.

It is obvious that those skilled in the art may vary the details of construction and arrangement of parts without departing from the spirit of my invention, and, therefore, I do not wish to be limited to such features, except as may be required by the claims.

IVhat I claim is 1. In a display rack the combination of a vase provided with end portions; a T-shaped brace joining said end portions; and angular holding pieces 15 adapted to receive in the angles of said pieces the ends of the rockers of chairs to be displayed and said angular pieces extending parallel to said T-shaped brace joining the end portions of said base, substantially as described.

2. In a display rack the combination of a base comprising end pieces; a top frame provided with end pieces; uprights extend ing from said base to the end pieces of said top frame; angular pieces joining the end pieces of the top frame; T-shaped braces connecting said uprights; and means connecting the end pieces of said top frame to said braces; substantially as described.

3. In a display rack, for rocking chairs, the combination of a base comprising end pieces, an inverted T-shaped brace joining said end pieces adapted to receive the rear portions of the rockers of the chairs to be displayed; angular pieces 15 joining said end pieces adapted to receive the front portions of the rockers of said chairs; uprights secured to said end pieces; inclined braces 10 joining said uprights and end pieces; a top frame provided with a T-shaped brace and having angular pieces extending between its end pieces; and means for pivotally supporting said frame on said uprights, substantially as described.

4:. In a display rack for rocking chairs, the combination of a base comprising end pieces; an inverted T-shaped brace joining said end pieces adapted to receive the rear portions of the rockers of the chairs to be displayed; angular pieces 15 joining said end pieces adapted to receive front portions of the rockers of said chairs; uprights secured to said end pieces; inclined braces 10, joining said uprights and end pieces; a top frame provided with a T-shaped brace and having angular pieces extending between its end pieces; means for pivotally supporting said frame on said uprights; and stops to limit the pivotal movement of said frame, substantially as described.

5. In a display rack, the combination of a pair of uprights, with a top frame comprising a T-shaped brace extending between said uprights; pivots passing through said uprights into said T-shaped brace; end pieces 17 below said T-shaped brace; means securing said end pieces and T-shaped brace together; and angular V-shaped pieces 18, connecting said end pieces, substantially as described.

In testimony whereof, I afiix my signature, in presence of two Witnesses.

ROBERT E. HARPER.
