UNITED STATES PATENT QFFEQE.
CHARLES R. HAMLIN, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.
The present invention is directed to improvements in display stands.
The primary object of the invention is to provide a device of this character so constructed that a watch or other article may be supported for display. in windows or showcases.
Another object of the invention is to provide a device oi this type so constructed that it can be used for holding price or announcement cards.
l/Vith these and other objects in view, tbi invention resides in the novel .res oi construction, formation, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully explained and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which,-
Figure l is a perspective view of th device showing the same in use for supporting; a watch.
Figure 2 is a side elevation of the device showing the same in a position for holding a price or an announcement care.
Figure 3 is a sectional view on ine 33 of Figure 2.
Figure l is a perspective view of the device showing it in one or its adjusted positions.
The stand comprises an elongated sheet metal base plate 1, the forward end of which is provided with a semi-circular recess 2 and upturned spaced ears 3. The rear end of the base plate has termed therein hey-hole slot 4 and in which a securing device, such a a thumb taclr may be engaged to hold the b 2 fixed to a support, should it be desired to anchor tl e stand.
A vertically disposed sheet metal support ing plate 5 which is cooperatively associated with the base plate 1 has its upper end provided with a sen1i-circular recess 6, the purpose of which will be later explained.
The lower edge of the plate 5 terminates i= an integrally connec ed horizontally dis oset n,
flange '7 which has its sides turned inwart to provide guide grooves 9 for slidably an trictionally engaging the opposite side of the base plate 1, as more clearly shown in Figure 3 of the drawing.
In order that the supporting plate 5 will be positively maintained in an adjusted position upon the base plate 1, the flange 7 is provided with a lug 9 which is pressed therein for engaging the said base plate. It will be obvious that this lug will engage the plate 1 with sui'iicient friction to hold the supporting plate 5 in a selected position of adjustment.
shown. in dotted lines in Figure l, the ear 3 and a recess 6 s rving to main tain the watch at any desired inclination.
in l 'gure 2 a display or price card 10 is shown clamped between the lingers 3 of the supporting plate 5. If desired the supporting pla e 5 may be reversed, as shown in l 'ure l, thereby permitting the base plate "12! l to be supported in an inclined position and in which instance various articles may be displayed. H
From the foregoing description it will be obvious tiat articles, such as compacts, lockets and in fact, many articles sold in jewelry and department stores can be attractively displayed upon the stands, and it will be of course understood that the stands may vary in size to accommodate articles of various sizes.
Having thus described the invention, I claim:
1. A display stand comprising a base hav- .ng ears upon one end, an l.-sl'iaped supportlate having guide grooves on one arm erect s..idably engaging the side edges of the base plate, and a recess in the other arm, and means carried by the said plate for frictionally enga ing the base plate to hold the suonortinn' ola'te in adusted ositions i r C! i thereon.
display stand comprising a base plate having upturned upon one end, a supporting plate hr ing a horizontally disposed flange thereon, said flange having inturned sic.v to provide grooves slidably engaging the ice edges of the base plate, the said supporting plate being adapted to be reversibly connected to said base plate.
In testimonv whereof I affix my signature.
