UNHTEO STATES learner ADOLPH DIETSCHE, JR., OF NEW YORK, N. Y., ASSIGNOR TO AMERICAN LITHOGR-AFHIC COMPANY, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., A CORPORATION 015 NE? YORK.

i COLLAPSIBLE DISPLAY DEVICE.

Application filed June 28, 1522.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that l, AnoLrH DIETSCHE, J12, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of New York, borough of Queens, in the county of Queens and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements inCollapsible Display Devices, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to collapsible display devices and particularly to that class thereof formed of sheet material, such as cardboard or the like and adapted to present the semblance of a picture frame in upright position. 'The object of my improvements is to provide a device of the class specified, simple in construction and economical of manufacture, and which may be shipped in a fiat condition.

lVith these ends in view my improvements comprise features illustrated in their preferred embodiment in the drawing accompanying this specification, wherein Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improved device, assembled and in display position. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the principal member of said device, scored and bent to the form when in use. Fig.- 3 is a plan View of two like members of said device, in condition for assembly with said member shown in Fig 2. The three views are to the same scale.

Referring now to the drawing in detail, 2 is the main member of the device having articulated to opposite edges 3, 4e thereof strip portions 5, 6, respectively, and to the outer edges 7, 8 of said strip portions are articulated, respectively, frame portions 9, 10. Said strip portions are disposed in angular relation to said main member and to said frame portions, respectively, so that said frame portions are offset or raised above the plane of said main member.

Superimposed transversely on the face of said main member are opposite removably attached end members 11 each having a frame portion 12 provided with a strip portion 13 articulated thereto in angular relation at 14:. Each of said end member frame portions 12 is adapted for bridging the space between frame portions 9, 10 of main member 2 and for overlapping said frame portions in parallelism therewith. Also each of said end member strip portions 13 is adapted for filling the space between strip portions 5, 6 of main member 2. Each of Serial No. 571,548.

said end member frame portions 12 is provided at each end thereof with a projecting hooked car 15 for removably engaging slots 16, respectively, in frame portions 9,10 of main member 2. Also each of said end member strip portions 13 is provided on its free edge with one or more projecting ears 17 for removably engaging slots 18, respectively, of main member 2.

Any suitable well known collapsible means may be used to support the device in upright position. One such means 19 is indicated in dotted lines in Fig. 1. It will be noted that the top and bottom edges of main member 2 and its attached members are relieved or cut. back within the lines between the outer corners thereof within the adjacent edges of end members 11 in order that said end members may conceal said edges when viewed from in front, and also that the bottom edge of the device may rest with- V out interference on its supporting surface when said device is in tilted backward position.

The method of assembling the device will be apparent from the showing of the drawing and from the foregoing description.

I claim:

1. A collapsible display device of sheet material including in combination, a main member having articulated to two opposite edges thereof strip portions, respectively and to said strip portions opposite frams portions, respectively, said strip portions lying in angular relation to said main member and said frame portions, whereby said frame portions may be raised above the plane of the main member, and removably attached end members superimposed on the face of the said main member, said end members having strip portions and frame portions corresponding with those of said main member.

2. A collapsible display device of sheet material including in combination, a main member having articulated to two opposite edges thereof strip portions, respectively, and to said strip portions opposite frame portions, respectively, said strip portions lying in angular relation to said main member and said frame portions, whereby said frame portions may be raised above the plane of the main member, and removably attached end members superimposed on the face of said main member, said end members having strip portions and frame portions corresponding with those of said main member, the edges or the main member ad acent the outer edges of said end members being out back within said outer edges of the end members, respectively.

7 3. A collapsible display device of sheet material including in combination, a main member having articulated to two opposite edges thereof strip portions, respectively, and to said strip portions opposite frame portions, respectively, said strip portions lying in angular relation to said main mem' her and said frame portions, whereby said frame portions may be raised above the plane of the main member, opposite end members each having a frame portion provided with a strip portion articulated thereto, each of said end member frame portions being adapted for bridging the space between the frame portions of said main member and fo overlapping said main member frame portions, each oi. said opposite end member strip portions being adapted for filling the space between its articulated, frame portion and said main portion, re spectively, a hook-shaped ear projecting from each end of each 01" the fran'le portions of said end members, an ear projecting from the strip portion of each of said end members, and slots in said. main member and in its frame members adapted for removably engaging the ears of said end members respectively.

:4. A collapsible display device of sheet material including in combination, a main member having articulated to two opposite edges thereof strip portions, respectively, and to said strip portions opposite frame portions, respectively, said strip portions lying in angular relation to said main member and said frame portions, whereby said frame portions may be brought into a common plane above the plane of the main member, opposite end members'each having a frame portion provided with a strip portion articulated thereto, each of said end member frame portions being adapted for bridging the space between the frame por tions of said main member and for overlapping in parallelism therewith said main member frame portions,each of said opposite end member strip portions being adapted for filling the space between its articulated frame portion and said main portion and between the opposite main member strip portions, respectively, 'a hook-shaped ea projecting from each end of each of the frame portions of said end members, an ear projectingirom the strip portion of each of said end members, and slots in said main member and in its frame members adapted for removably engaging the ears of said end members, respectively.

In Witness whereof, I hereby afiiX my signature this 26 day of June, 1922.

ADOLPH D'IETSCHE, J12.
