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.
