In the drawings :Figure 1 is a view in perspective, showing the parts of the frame adjusted, to support stationery. Fig. 2 is a shown in the drawview showing the shelves of the frame col-- lapsed. Fig. 3 is a detail view showing the cor-inaction of one of the rods 2 with one of the bars 1. Fig. at is a detail perspective fragmentary view of one of the shelves showing the brace or support 20.

Referring to the drawings 1 designates the sidebars of the frame, which are connected at their upper and lower ends by the transverse bars 2. The transverse bars 2 at each of their ends terminate in reduced portions 3, which penetrate the side bars and are provided with nuts 4-, which hold the parts securely and firmly together. The

upper and lower ends of the side bars terminate in ofiset ears 5, which are perforated, to receive screws or other means 6, whereby the side bars may be fastened to a wall or the like.

Each of the shelves 8 of the frame is constructcd of wire material. The ends and the outer sides of each shelf are constructed of wire, or one diameter in cross section, while the longitudinal wires 11 are of a smaller diameter. The ends and the outer side of each shelf are denoted by the numerals 12 and 13. The end portions of the ends 12 terminate in eyes 14, which receive the rods 15, which constitute the other side of each shelf. The rods 15 are constructed of wires of larger diameter than the wire of the end and sides 12 and 13, and terminate at their ends in reduced portions 16, which enter the perforations 17 of the side bars. The sides 13 and the rods 15 of'the shelves are connected by the tie wires 18, which also connect the longitudinal wires.

Pivoted on the sides 13, by means of the l eyes 19 are the braces or supports 20, the free ends of which terminate in books 21, which engage the rods or wires 15 in order to support the shelves in horizontal posi' tions, on which stationery may be placed for drying.

From the foregoing it will be noted, there has been devised an efficient and desirable collapsible frame or rack, on which stat-ion ery may be placed for drying, and one which has been found through practical experiments and dcinonstrationsyto serve a new and useful purpose in printing ofiices.

The invention having been set forth, What is claimed as new and useful is 1- In combination, a pair of side bars, rods connecting the side bars, one above and one below, the side bars terminating in oflset perforated cars adapted to receive screws for fastening the side bars to a side wall, wire rods connecting the side bars between the upper and lower rods and equally spaced apart, shelves having their ends and one of their sides constructed of single length of wire of one diameter, said length of Wire being fulcrumed on each Wire rod, longitudinal wires connecting the ends of each shelf, tie wires connecting the single length of wire, the longitudinal Wires and the wire rods, supports pivot-edto the free sides of the shelves and terminating in books adapted to engage the wire rods.
