This invention relates to a displaydevice and particularly to an improved display ture especially adapted for displaying flowers either in pots or other receptacles or after the same have been cut.,

The object of the invention is to provide gle stand may be used with a number of at-' tachments to receive and support diflerent articles in connection with the flowers.

In the accompanying drawings Figure 1 is a side view of a display fixture disclosing an embodiment of the invention.

Figure 2 is a sectional view through Figure 1 approximately on line 22.

Figure 3 is a top plan view of the structure shown in Figure 1 together with an attachment applied thereto.

Figure 4 is a sectional view through Figure 3 approximately on line 44.

Figure 5 is a fragmentary sectional View through Figure 2 approximately on line Referring to the accompanying drawings by numerals, indicates a base of any de sired kind to which a member 11 is secured by being screwed therein as shown at the bottom in Figure 1. Near the upper end the tubular member 11 is provided with an opening 12 for accommodating the tongue 13 of the catch 14. This catch is provided with a handle 15 merging into the tongue 13 and into the side arms 16 and 17, said side arms having inwardly extending sections 18 and 19 projecting a short distance into the tubular member 11 and acting as pivotal supports. The tongue 13 co-acts with the annular shoulders 20 formed in the supporting rodor shaft 21. This rod or shaft has a threaded upper end on which a base 22 may be screwed. The base 22 is .provided with spaced projections 24 and 25 on diametrically opposite sides and between these projections the ends of the supporting arms 26 and 27 are placed, said supporting arms being held in place by rivets or other securing means. The base 22 is preferably provided with an annular flange 28 and with a drain out opening 29 whereby a pot of flowers or other receptacle may be deposited on the base or held above the" ase-as Shown in'Figu'res' 1 and 2'.

The upper end of arm 26 is provided with an aperture for receiving the pintle 30 secured to the ring 31 while the upper end of arm 27 is provided with an aperture 32 through which the screw 33 extends, said screw having a winged head 34 whereby it I may be applied and removed at any time for clamping the ring 31 tightly against the upper end of arm 27 and thereby prevent its swinging movement. A lug or shoulder 35 extends from arm 27 near the aperture 32, said lug co-acting with the bevel faces 36 and 37 (Fig. 5) formed on the enlargement 314 of ring 31 whereby the tilting movement of the ring is limited.

In use, the stand arranged as shown in 1 Figures 1 and 2 is used to receive an ordinary flower pot 38 or some other receptacle and hold the same at an angle so that the flowers may be properly displayed. If desired, the flower pot or other, receptacle could be held vertical as shown in dotted lines.

Under some circumstances, it is desired to support a smaller flower pot or receptacle than that shown in Figures 1 and 2 and when this is the case a liner 39 is provided 3 which is a ring having a tapering bore and a plurality of laterally extending lugs 40 adapted to hook over the ring 31. These lugs are usually provided with extending ribs 41 so as to properly space the liner 39. If desired, a plurality of liners could be used where a very small pot is to be supported though ordinarily one liner is sufficient.

What I claim is 1. Adisplay stand for flowers comprising a base, a tubular member mounted on said base, a sliding rod mounted for vertical adjustment in the tubular member, a disc removably connected with the upper end of the rod and provided, with upstanding arms at 0nd arm and having a threaded engagement with the passage in the enlargement of the ring for locking the ring in position, the enlargement being provided with a V-shaped bottom,'a shoulder on the second mentioned arm adapted to be engaged by the sides of the V-shaped bottom of the enlargement and cooperating with the adjustingbolt for locking the ring in a plurality of tilted positions.

2. A display stand for flowers comprising a drip pan, arms connected to the periphery of the pan and extending upwardly there- 'from, a ring pivotally mounted at diametrically opposite points to the upper free ends of the arms, stop means on the upper free end of one of the arms, means on the ring adjacent the stop means'and cooperating with the stop means for maintaining the tiltable ring in a plurality of positions, means for locking the ring in adjusted position,

and an adjustable support adapted to be res movably connected with the bottom of the drip pan.
