UITE STATES PATENT OFFICE.

PIERRE HECTOR BROUSSARD, OF LONDON, ENGLAND.

PATTERN-DISPLAY HOLDER.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, PIERRE HECTOR Brons- SARD, a citizen of the Republic of France, residing at 8 Blenheim street, New Bond street, London, in the county of London, Kingdom of England, silk merchant, have invented a certain new and useful Improved Pattern-Display Holder, of which the following is a specification.

This invention has for its object to provide an improved pattern carrier for holding together a plurality of patterns of materials in such a manner that any one of such patterns can be readily separated or held apart from the others for the purpose of inspection.

Heretofore it has been the common practice to employ what are known as pat-tern books which are usually formed by binding a plurality of samples to a rigid back by means of clips or the like. Such an arrangement is found in practice to take up considerably more material than is actually needed for the samples as owing tothe method of binding only a portion of each pattern can be viewed and further a ticket bearing the reference number and price of the separate pieces has to be pasted on to a part of such material.

The present invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of an improved pattern carrier; Fig. 2 is a detail sectional view showing one method of holding the wires in the handle by means of a screw; Figs. 3 and 4 and Figs. 5 and 6 show in elevation and plan respectively two modified methods of removably holding in place the ends of the wires.

This sample display holder or pattern carrier comprises a handle a and a detachable display loop 5 secured to said handle. The display loop is preferably composed of two wires spaced apart and disposed parallel with each other. The shanks of these loops are detachably secured to the socket end of the handle 0 by means of a screw Z) or other wise. These wires form approximately a triangular loop having two converging holding sides for separate groups of patterns slidable thereon and a section having curved connections with said sides and adapted for the individual display of said slidable patterns. The patterns are normally arranged together on one of the straight sides of the wires 6 and when it is desired to inspect Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Sept. 5, 1911.

Serial No. 597,859.

any one of the said patterns it is as in Fig. 1 pulled along to the loop or bend'and the others pushed away therefrom to either side thereof. Thus the whole of the said sample is clearly visible and accessible. In some cases I may bind the edge of each sample between a stiffening member a of cloth, paper or the like and the reference number and price can very conveniently be marked upon this part. Eyelets 6 may if desired be provided for the passage of the wires Z) to prevent tearing of the cloth a or binder a when in use. The wires 6 may be so arranged that they may be unfastened at one end to permit of the complete removal or insertion of fresh patterns and such engagement may conveniently be effected by securing the ends of the wires to the handle by means of a screw 1) as in Fig. 2 which can be removed or loosened to free the ends of the wires.

In the modified arrangement shown in Figs. 3 and 4: the two ends 6 of the wires Z) are adapted to be sprung into recesses made in the end of the part 7 attached to the handle 0 while in Figs. 5 and 6 the free bent ends 6 of the wires are adapted to be sprung or passed through openings 57 in the part 7 and held in place by means of a clamping plate It and winged nut 2'.

The handle 0 is preferably provided with an eye 03 by which the device is hung up when not in use.

Although I have referred to a pair of wires I) it will be understood that I may also use a single wire or even several wires without departing from the spirit of my invent-ion.

Where a number of patterns are to be used I might arrange the frames?) in pairs or twin fashion and have the handle between the two.

What I claim as my invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. A display holder for patterns comprising a handle, a display loop detachable therefrom having holding sides for separate groups of patterns slidable thereon and a section connected wit-h said sides and adapted for the individual display of said slidable patterns, and means for detachably connecting said loop with said handle.

2. A display holder for patterns comprising a handle provided at one end with a suspension device, a display loop detachable from the opposite end of said handle and having holding sides for separate groups of patterns slidable thereon and a section connected With said sides and adapted for the individual display of said slidable patterns, and means for detachably connecting said loop with said handle.

3. A display holder for patterns comprising a handle, a display loop detachable therefrom having holding sides for separate patterns, said loop comprising a plurality of Wires extending radially from the socketend of said handle and thence parallel With one another to form the body of the loop.

In testimony, that I claim the foregoing as my invention, I have signed my name in presence of two subscribing Witnesses.
