which also supports the back card, and an apertured reception card for holding the articles or containers, extending downwardly and forwardly from the back card to the base card, all by preference out out and made of one piece of cardboard and adapted to be folded fiat for convenient transportation, sub stantially as hereinafter set forth.
In order that my invention may be fully understood, I shall first describe in detail the mode in which I at present prefer to carry the invention into practiceand then particularly point out the invention and its various features in the claim.
Figure 1 is a perspective v1ew of a display stand embodying my invention in use.
Figure 2 is a plan view showing the same folded flat for transportation and its construction.
In making the specific form of my invention here shown, I form a blank 3 of a single roughly rectangular piece of cardboard having preferably equal lateral extensions 4:, 4, on each side commencing near the upper edge and terminating a short distance from t e lower edge, the blank being scored or creased on the vertical lines 5-5 joining the extensions with the body of the blank, and on the horizontal line 6-6, from the lower ends of the respective scores 5-5.
The blank is also cut on vertical lines 7 -7 spaced inside the lines 5-5, commencing below the upper edge and terminating below the scored or creased lines 6-6, and above the lower edge of the body of the blank. The blank is also scored orcreased on the horizontal line 8-8 connecting the upper ends of the respective cut vertical lines 7-7, on the horizontal line 9-9, connecting the lower ends of the cut lines 7-7, and on the horizontal line 10-10, above and parallel to the line 9-9.
- The body of the blank is also cutout within the lines 7-7, 8-8 and 10-10 to form apertures 11 fitted to receive the articles to DISPLAY STAND.
be displayed or their containers, and above the horizontal line 8-8, and also if desired, outside the vertical lines 7-7, may appear the directions, announcement or other advertisement. of the article displayed as well as of its producer and/or distributor.
The completed blank thus formed is as shown in Figure 2 in flat form for convenient p-acking and transportation. lVhen desired for use the blank is bent or folded, as shown in Figure 1, rearwardly at right angles on the vertical lines 5-5, to formv wings for upholding the'. back of the display, forwardly or outwardly along the horizontal lines 6-6, 8-8 and 9-9, and rearwardly along the line [0-10. In this position the portion of the blank between thelines 6-6 and the lower edge of the blank is at right angles to the back and forms a sustaining base thereof to rest upon a counter or other support.
The out out rectangular portion between the lines 9-9 and 10-10, rests upon the corresponding rectangular. portion of the base between the line 9-9 and the front edge of the base, as an upper or additional base, and the apertured cut out portion between the lines 8-8 and 10-10 extends downwardly and forwardly from the line 8-8 to the forward edge of the uper and lower base, so
as conveniently and e ectively to receive and display the articles or their containers as shown. I
TlllS construction makes an exceptionally It is evident that the details of the specific embodiment of my invention herein shown and described may be greatly varied without departing from the boundaries of my invention as defined by the following claim.
... I claim as my invention:
A display stand formed of a single sheet cut in parallel vertical lines spaced from the sides and substantially parallel therewith,
and said vertical cut lines terminating at the same distance from. the top and bottom respectively of the sheet and connected at their upper ends, at their lower ends and between their upper and lower ends by foldable transverse lines parallel toeach other, and the portions of the sheet outside said vertical cut lines being formed with transverse foldable lines in the same line, between and parallel to the upper and lower foldable lines of the medial cut out portion, so that when the side portions are bent on their transverse foldable lines, the upper portions thereof will stand upri ht and the lower portions thereof will lie in t e horizontal plane andthe medial cutout portion when bent on its upper, lower, and medial transverse lines will extend on an inclination from its upper transverse line to its medial transverse line, and the lower part of the out out portion, between its medial and 10 lower transverse lines, will rest upon the lower part of the sheet below said lower foldable line. i
In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
JOSEPH EDWIN BURGESS.
