Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Sept. 15, 1914.

Application filed April 9, 1914. Serial No. 830,827.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JOHN M. NUNN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Sherman, in the county of Grayson and State of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Display Devices for Doors, of which the following is a specificatiom This invention. relates to display devices for doors, and its object is essentially to provide a convenient and inexpensive device of this character that may be placed in position very quickly and easily and which has novel means for fastening it to the stiles of doors that are provided with large panes of glass.

W ith the above and other objects in View the invention consists of a light rectangular receptacle, open at one side and of about the width of the space between the side door stiles; it may be of any desired height and depth and after the evening closing hour at fine stores the usual window decorator can attach these receptacles to the inner side of the glass entrance doors, arrange suitable goods therein and utilize, when brilliantly lighted at night, very valuable space.

The invention also consists of certain other novel features of construction and combinations of parts which will be hereinafter more fully described, and pointed out in the appended claims.

The invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawings, which, with the numerals of reference marked thereon, form a part of this specification, and in which- Figure 1, represents a front elevation of the improved display device embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a side view, Fig. 3 is a plan view thereof, and Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the detachable cover or lid.

Referring now to the details of the drawings by characters of reference the display device consists of a light rectangular receptacle of wood or other suitable material. It comprises a bottom 1, two ends 2 and one side 3, the other side being open and when in position upon the inner side of a door the end pieces of this open side rest against the outer ends of these plates being bent outward at right angles and the outward bent portion resting between the clip and the stile. The lower end of the receptacle is secured to the bottom door stile 7, by.

metal plates 8 secured to the bottom 1, their outer ends are bent downward at right angles, the outer bent portion entering loops 9 attached to the door stile 7. The side 3 may be so arranged as to be thrown'open when desired to have access to the interior of the receptacle, by dividing it horizontally into about two equal parts and connecting them by hinges 10, thus permitting of the upper portion being folded down against the lower section; and it may be secured in its closed position as illustrated in the drawings by afastcning device consisting of a hook 11, hinged to each side thereof and engaging an eye 12 in the adjacent end. WVhen heavy goods are to be displayed a bracket 13, carrying a caster 11 may be secured to the bottom of the projecting side of the receptacle, with the caster resting upon the floor of the building. A lid 15- as shown in Fig. 4 may be used to cover the top. lVhen in position the triangular bent plates 16, secured to it enter the loops 17 thus retaining it in place and protecting the contents of the receptacle from dust.

From the foregoing it is apparent that I produce a device which is simple and comparatively inexpensive in construction, but in attaining-these ends I do not wish to be limited to the precise details herein set forth, inasmuch as minor changes in the form, proportion, and exact manner of assemblage of the parts mav be made without departing from the spirit of the invention.

What I esteem as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

In a display device -for doors comprising a light rectangular receptacle open at one side, the other side divided horizontally through the center and joined by hinges,

a 1,11o,aoe

rendering the upper portion of the side foldends of the receptacle and adapted to enable outwardly, the foldable portion being ga ement with the clips, as-herem set forth. 10

secured in a closed position to the ends by n testimony whereof I aflix my signature hooks attached thereto, and means for rein presence of two witnesses. movably securing the receptacle to a. door, JOHN M. NUN N. such means comprising metal clips secured Witnesses: to the stiles of a door, together with rec- F. H. NUNN,

' tangular bent metal plates secured to the G. A. LIVINGSTON.
