ADVERTISING DEVI-CE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed October 23, 1916. Serial No. 127,249.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, CLARENCE T. FAIR- BANKS, .a citizen of the United States, residing' at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented new and useful Improvements in Advertising Devices, of which the following is a full, clear, concise, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, forming a part of this specification.

My invention relates to an advertising de vice for the exhibition of paints, calcimines and the like.

One of the objects of my invention is to provide an improved device of this character in which the effect to be obtained by the use of different wall coatings in a room can be realistically displayed, which will be simple in construction and effective in use.

In the drawings, in which I have shown several embodiments of my invention- Figure 1 is a perspective view of a folder showing a sheet about to be inserted;

Fig. 2 is a rear elevation of part of the folder shown in Fig. 1;

Fig. 3, is a side elevation of the part shown in Fig. 2;

Fig. 4 is a perspective view showing the sheets to be inserted bound in book form;

Fig. 5 is a fragmentary view showing another form of the positioning sheet; and

Fig. 6 is a, section on the line 66 of Fig. 5.

Referring to the drawings in detail, in Fig. 1 is shown a folder embodying my in,- vention. This folder comprises three leaves, 10, 11 and 12, respectively. Each of the leaves 10 and 11 is provided with a pictorial representation of a door or similar opening through the wall of a room 13 and 14, respectively, and also with a pictorial representation of room furnishings 15. and

16, respectively, seen through the doors 13 and 14. Each leaf 10 and 11 is also provided with an irregularly shaped opening 17 and 18, respectively, the outline of which is determined by the outline of the representations of the room furnishings and door.

As an example of the room furnishings, the leaf 11 shows a chair 18*, a table 18 and picture 18.

At the back of each of the leaves 10 and 11 a leaf 19 is secured at its lower edge 20 s 17 and 18, respectively. The front face 0 each leaf 19 is coated with a material suitable for a wall a sheet coating, such as calcimine, paint, or the like. The back face of leaf 19 may be printed with type matter thus making the back of the device useful as well as the front when used asthe page of a folder or circular.

Other layers or sheets 21 having one face coated with calcimine or the like of a different shade or pattern from the coating on the leaves 19 may be inserted between the leaves 19 and 11 and between the leaves 19 and 10.

In this manner, very realistic representations of the appearance of a furnished room with various shades and patterns of wall coatings may be obtained. The leaf 19 is secured at 20 in such position as to properly position the lower end of the sheet 21 so that this sheet will cover the opening 18.

If desired, the side edges also of the sheet 19 may be secured to the sheet 11, as indicated at 22 in Figs. 5 and 6, to still further position the inserted sheet 21. Also, if desired, a number of sheets 21" having c0at ings of different shades and patterns may be bound together to form a book 23 (Fig. 4), anyone of the leaves of which can be inserted between the sheets 19 and 11.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. In a device of the character described,
