1 DISPLAY nncnrrnotn Application filed May 23, 1925. Serial Nb. 32,345.

To all whom, it may concern:

Be it known that I, DEWEY H. BITNEY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Albion, county of-Calhoun, State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Display Receptacles, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in display'receptacles.

The, main object of this invention is to provide an improved display receptacle in which the bottom may be adjusted to vary the capacity of the rec tacle or to-incline the bottom as may b desired to facilitate the display of the contents.

Objects pertaining to details and economies of my invention will definitely appear from the detailed description to follow.

I accomplish the objects of my invention by the devices and means described in the followin specification. The invention is clearly escribed and pointed out in the claims.

A structure embodying the features of my invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawing forming a part of this application, in which:

Fig. I is a perspective view of .my improved display baske't'or receptacle with the adjustable tray or bottom in one ofits several possible positions;

F ig II is a fragmentary vertical trans- -verse section with the adjustable bottom shown in full lines.

Fig. III is a perspective view of the adjustable bottom support.

In the drawing similar numerals of reference refer to similar parts in all of the views. I

My improved display basket or recepf having horizontal and vertical slats, of a tacle in the embodiment illustrated is o rectangular cross section, the side walls being made up of border or frame members consisting of the top cross member 1 and side members 2 integral therewith extended to provide legs 3, the ends of the'wires being bent upwardly and crossed providing braces 4. The sidev members are connected by the bottom frame member 5.

The horizontal slats 6 are secured to the side members 2 and vertical slats 7 are se cured to the top cross member .1 and bottom cross member 5. The bottom cross member has inward ofi'sets 8 providing rests'for the meshwork bottom 9. These side members are connected by thestrap-like hinge 'memthe receptacle, resting'on a horizontal slat below it as shown in Fig. I, the ends of its arms having downwardly facing hooks 13 thereon which are engaged over a horizontal slat on the opposite side, thus supporting the pan in an'inclined position an'dat any height desired, the variation, of course, depending upon the spacing of the horizontal slats.

The receptacle can thus be readily' adjusted for the display of varying quantities of material and the receptacle appears full without regard to the amount displayed. Also, the inclining of the tray .or bottom 11 facilitates the display of certain articles which may be arranged thereon. If desired, the tray may be supported at the top and filled with water for fresh vegetables such asparagus, celery, onions, lettuce, radishes, and the like.

1 For certain purposes the tray may be omitted and the wire bottom adjustably supported in any desiredv position by the support, or the wire bottom may be adjusted as desired and the tray placed thereon.

Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. The combination with a wire receptacle bottom member adjustable Within said receptacle, and a U-shaped bottom member support disposed through one side of the re ceptacle to rest on a horizontal slat and with its bight portion embracing the vertical slats between the arms and its hooks disposed facing downwardly and engaged with a horizontal slat on the opposite side of the receptacle. I

2. The combination with a wire receptacle having horizontal and vertical slats, of a bottommember adjust-able within said receptacle, and a support extending across the receptacle for adjustably supporting saidbottom within said receptacle said support being adapted to be inserted slats and being selectively engageable with slatson opposite sides of the receptacle.

3. The combination with a Wire receptacle having open-meshed walls, of a bottom member -adjustable within said receptacle, and a supportfor adjustably supporting said bottom within said receptacle adjustably en- 10 gageablewith slats on opposite sides ofthe receptacle.

between the meshes at one side of said receptacle and having hooks on its arms engageable through meshes on the opposite sides of said receptacle.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
