To all whom it may concern: I
Be it 'known that I, EMORY S: Wool), acitizen of the United States, residing at Commerce, in the county of Jackson and State of Georgia, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Article Display and Delivering Cabinets, of which the with display compartments and reserve stock containing compartments, wherein there are articles of stock constantly in a delivered position ready to be extracted, and as an'ar ticle is withdrawn, another one falls in place, so it can be extracted or removed.
sion of means for -manually rotating the revoluble cab-met section in either direction,
whereby any desired article, of which there may be a display thereof, may be moved to a position in registration with the oval opennwf the glass wall. a
r hile the design and construction at present: illustrated and. set forth are deemed preferable, it is obviousthat as a result of a reduction ofzthe 'inventionto a more practicalv form for commercial purposes, the in- It is another purpose to. provide means carried by the movable cabinet section, and located in the rear of said compartments for the reserve stock, to automatically eject an article radially, as a result of its gravit action, when a previous article is extracte so that the succeeding article may be extracted.
Still another purpose is provide a revoluble cabinet section including an outer -wall having compartments consecutively arranged for articles on display, there being spaces left be ween certain of the articles on display and t e walls of said compartments, for the reception of article wrappers.
A further urpose is the provision of a display and elivering cabinet,'wherein the outer stationary cabinet section comprises a base including a cylindrical glass. wall mounted thereon and provided with an oval opening through which the articles may be removed when ejected 'to a position in registration with the opening, in combination with a cover for holding the glass wall in position, and to cover the top of the revoluble cabinet section.
A still further purpose is the provision of 'mcans for permitting the revoluble cabinet section to freely rotate, and also the provivention may be susceptible of changes, and the right to these changes is claimed, provlded they are comprehended within the scope, of what is claimed.
The invention comprises further features and combination of parts, as will be hereinafter set forth, shown in the drawings and claimed.
In the drawings Figure 1 is a view in side elevation of the improved article display and delivering cabinet constructed in accordance withthe invention; J
Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view thereof;
fFigure 3 is a horizontal sectional view on line 33 of Figure 2;
Figure 4 is'a horizontal sectional view on at line 4-4 of Figure 2; Figure 5 is a detail a fragmentary portion 0 cabinet section, showing the various compartments for articles on display, and compartments for the reserve stock.
Referring to the drawings,'1 designates a base, which may be constructed of any suitaperspective view of ble material preferably sheet metal, and
which is hollow as shown. The up or wall ofthe base has an annular rib 2, an engaging the upper wall within the rib is a cylindrical glass case or wall 3. Mounted within the case 3 is a revoluble cabinet section 4, which is provided with partitions 5. An inner cylindrical wall 6 connects the inner ends of the partitions 5, while the outer cylindrical wall 7 connects the outer portions of the partitions 5. These walls are arranged to cause compartments 8 to be formed with parallel op osite faces, for the. reception of stock whic is delivered, and then sold to the trade. Owing to the opposite faces of these compartments being in parallelism, the spaces or compartments 9 are caused to be formed V-shaped. These V-shaped compartments 9 alternate with the compart the inner revoluble compartments 9'are divided off by the cylindrical wall 7, which connects the outer portions of the partitions 5, there being additional partitions 10 arranged, in order to provide the V-shaped spaces 11, which are designed to receive wrappers of various articles which are to be sold The wrappers are placed in the spaces 11, so that their design and advertising matter will appear through the glass case 30' The outer portions of the compartments 8 above the horizontal walls 12 (which are located in the lower portions of the com part-merits 8) i are also divided oil by the cylindrical. wall '7, thereby providing additional compartments 1?) for articles to be placed on display.
' The partitions 10 also act as walls to the compartments 14, which receive articles to be placed on display. In fact the compartments iii-and 1% may simply receiwe the boxes or cartons or any other containers, which are adapted to contain the articles to be sold simply to show what articles the Storekeeper or proprietor may have for sale in the cabinet.
It Will be noted that the articles to be sold are carried by the rear portions of the compartments 8, and furthermore the lower por tion of the cylindrical wall lot the revoluble cabinet section is conical outwardly and downwardly, which acts to eject an article to be sold toward an arched openih'g 15 of the outer glass shell or wall of the stationary cabinet, As previously stated the glass wall or shell engages the base 1 within the annular bead or shoulder. 2. However where the opening 15 occurs,'the annular bead or wall has a portion ofiset in-,
wardly through the lower part of the opening 15, as shown at 16. The inner surface of this ofiset or inwardly extending portion of the head or shoulder is flush with the inner surface of the glass wall or shell of the stationary cabinet, and constitutes means to be engaged by an article which is ejected radially, thereby limiting the article in its ejecting movement. y constructing the inner surface or" this inwardly offset portion flush with the'inner surface of the lass shell the inner cabinet section is capalile of rotating in either direction, so that any article, which has automatically moved to an ejected position can be easily extracted from and through the opening 15, when the revoluble cabinet section is rotated, to position the article desired inregistration with theopening, I It will be noted thatthe articles to be sold are shorter than the length of the com partments 8, so as to permit of suficient looseness of play, whereby the outer end of the article may first'drop, after which the rear end of the article will slide down the inclined surface of the conical wall 17 of The revoluble cabinet section is mounted .upon. a spindle 20, there being suitable ball bearings 21.which will permit the revoluble cabinet section to rotate freely. The upper end of the spindle 20 has a knob 22,which;' may be engaged by the hand of the operator, so as to rotate the inner revolu .ble cabinet section, until the compartment containing the desired article to be sold registers with'theopening 15.
' The invention having been set forth what is claimed is 1. In an article display and delivering cabinet, stationary and revoluble cabinet sections, the latter being mounted within the former, the revoluble cabinet section having compartments for articles on dis-.
aving means for causing the ejection of an article toward said 0 enin 2. In an article display and delivering cabinet, stationary and revolublef cabinet sections, the latter bein mountediwithin the former, the former p 'aving an o ening through which'articles may be with rawn,
the outer peripheral portion ofthe revoluble' cabinet section; havin consecutive compartments to receive attic es on display, said revoluble cabinet section having compartments inwardly of certain of the compartments which contain articles on dis lay, for the reception of articles to be so d, the compartments containing articles to be sold avlng their lower portions extending under alternate compartments which contain articles on display, whereby the articles to be sold ma move toward the opening through which the articles to be sold are extracted, the-lowerinner walls of the compartments containing articles to be sold being inclined outwardly and downwardly ifllj to eject the lower portion of the cylindrical wall. 6,
an article toward said opening whereby it may be extracted. p
3. In an article display and delivering cabinet, stationary and revoluble ,cabinet sections, the latter being mounted withinthe former, the former having an opening through which articles may be Withdrawn, the outer peripheral portion of the revoluble cabinet section having consecutive compartments to receive articles on display,said revoluble cabinet section having compartments inwardly of certain of the compartments which contain articles on display, for the reception of articles to be sold, the compartments containing articles to be sold having their lower portions extending under alternate compartments which contain articles on display, whereby the articles to be sold may move toward the opening through which the articles to be sold are extracted,
the lower inner walls of the compartments containing articles to be sold being inclined outwardly and downwardly acting to eject an article toward said opening whereby it.
may be extracted, means to permit the revoluble cabinet section to freely rotate with 3 5 mounted upon the base and within the stationary cabinet section and comprising an outer cylindrical wall and a second cylindrical wall of less diameter than and arranged concen trically within the outer cylindrical wall, a plurality of partitions connectingthe two walls and comprising such a construction and arrangement as to cause radial compartments to be formed between said walls, said revoluble cabinet section having a bottom for all of said radial compartments, said bottom merging into a conical wall which integrally connects with the second cylindrical cabinet wall, said conical wall constituting means to cause a radial movement to be imparted to articles which feed from below said compartments, to force them toward the discharge opening of the stationary cabinet section, through which the articles may be withdrawn.
5. In an article display and delivering cabinet, a base, a stationary cabinet section mounted upon said base and provided with a discharge opening immediately adjacent the base, a revoluble cabinet section mounted upon the base and within the stationary cabinet section for revoluble movement, said revoluble cabinet section comprising an outer wall provided with perpendicular compartments for the reception of articles on display therein, said revoluble cabinet section having a bottom and provided with a second cylindrical wall of less diameter than and spaced concentrically within said outer wall, the lower end of said second cylindricalwall terminating in an integral conical wall which extends downwardly and outwardly and merges integrally into the bottom, which causes a radial movement to be imparted to an article, whereby it may be shifted radially on the bottom toward and to be received from the discharge opening, partitions connecting the two cylindrical walls, and constructed and arranged to cause perpendicular compartments to be formed for the re-' ception of articles to be sold, said compartments being behind the display compart ments, whereby articles similar to those on display may be dispensed from the compartments according to the customers demand.
