counter-boards 5 are preferably provided at their bottoms and adjacent sides of the counter boards, with spacing strips 6, which mount the counter boards on the base 2 with the bottom of the boards spaced above the base 2, so as to permit the boards to be more readily handled.

Between adjacent counter boards 5, a counter is provided with glass plates 7 which extend vertically and are held in'position by the adjoining side edges of the counter boards. :There are also provided clips or brackets 8, preferably of metal, for holding additional glass plates 9 at right angles to the glass plates 7, for dividing the area of the counter board 5 into display compartments of smaller size and the trans-' verse glass plates 9 and brackets or clips 8, are movable in the display counter struc-. ture.

For this purpose, the clips or brackets 8 are preferably formed, ofsheet metal and have a body portion 10 extending vertically, and a base portion 11 turned at right angles thereto, so as to occupy a horizontal position. This base portion is slipped under the counter boards 5 so as to be held bysaid counter'boards or the spacers 6, form ing. a part of the counter boards, against the base 2 .of the display counter, whereby the body portion of the brackets are held in a vertical position, but may be slid along the edges of the counter boards into various positions. The upper end of the body'lO of the clips or brackets is provided with ears 12 forming a vertical groove forreceivin'g the edge of the transverse glass plates 9 and supporting these plates in a vertical position. v
