My invention relates more particularly,-

used more particularly for advertising purposes and comprising a series of plate-like members connectedtogetherin depending po-' sition, one abovethe other. and commonly supported from the. uppermost one of themembers, this type ofdisplay device being commonly provided for theready "separation of the various members one from the other, to permit of the addingtohor subtracting from, the display device of one or more of the,

depen dingly supported plate-like .members, or the re-arrangement of said members.

One of my objects is to provide a novel, simple, and economical construction of dis splay deviceoflthe general character above referred to.

Another object is to-irnprovethe appear-111 ance of such a device making itmore attrac tive, and particularly by providing the means 1 direction ofthe arrow.

vided of any suitable number, two only therefor supporting the plate-like members one from the other, ofjsuchconstruction-as to avoidan unsightly appearance and still render such means economical of construction.

Another object is to render the supporting 1 means for the members asiinconspicuous as.
