lthe main portion thereof,`and is removable to permit access to the main. portion.

The object of this invention 1s to provide a holder adapted to, store the main box, and

ermit convenient access thereto in dispensmg` its contents, and to support a tray, removed from the box, in an elevated position, with its contents .conspicuously displayed.

The invention is embodied in the improve-l ments hereinafter described and claimed.

Of the accompanying drawings forming apart of this specification,-

' Figure 1 is a perspective view of a dispenslng and display holder embodying the invention.

Figure 2 is a longitudinal section of the same.

Figure 3 is a section on line 3-3 of Figure 2.

Figure 4 is a view similar .to Figure 2, showing a box stored inl the holder, and a tray displayed thereon.

The same reference characters indicate the same parts in all of the figures.

In the drawings, 12 represents a bottom member, 13, 13 side members, and 14 an end tol member, said members being preferably of sheet metal, and connected and arranged to.

resent longitudinal upwardly facing rests specification of' Letters raient. Pawnee@ July application filed March 25, 1922. Serial No. 546,582.

es, rejee.

' attached to and projectin inwardly from the side members 13 abo 'ethe space "occupied by the box, and below the upper edges of the side and end members. The rests are provided at their rear ends with stop ears 17... The said rests, the stop ears and the upper edge portions ofthe side and end mem.- bers collectively constitute a tray-holder, adapted Vto support anddisplay a tray 18 removed from the box `1].5, and containing a sample of the goods-packed in the box.

A retailer after opening the box 15. and removing the tray 18, slides the box through the open end of the holder to the position shown by Figure 4, and deposits the tray on the rests 16, where it is confined against l edgewise and longitudinal displacement.

The contentsof the tray may remain thereon to advertise the goods, until the contents of the box have beendispensed, the box being withdrawn from the holder from time to time as its contents are required.

The end member 14 is preferably provided with ears or clips 20, adapted to confine a name card 21 against said member. To render the card conspicuous, I incline the end member so that its lower edge pro-V jects. forward further than the upper edge. To render the contents of the tray 18 conspicuous, I incline the rests 16, and the upper edges of the side members 13, sothat the forward end of the tray is lower than the rear end. This inclination also provides an air space above the rear portion of the box 15, which I consider desirable.

23 .represents a transverse tie member, preferably of sheet metal, attached at its ends to the rest 16, and bridging the space between said rests to prevent lateral displacement of the side members 13 at the open end of the holder.

I claim:

v A dispensing and display holder comprising a casing composed of a bottom member, upright side members, and a front end member, closing the front end of the casing, the rear end being open, said members collectively forming a box holder proportioned to receive a relatively large candy box which is movable into and out of the casing through the open end thereof, the end and side members projecting above the space occupied by said box, ehd longitual up'- wardly 'facing rests, pro'ectmg inwardly .from the side members low the upper meme@ rfray-lholder, edepfzex to supportand ie,

play the contents 'of a. may removed from seid box.
