PLACARD Filed Jan. 18, 1929 Patented May 31, 1932 HARRY REARSH, or jo -memo, rumors PLACABD Application filed January 18, 1929. Serial No; 383,338.

The present invention relates to a placard adapted to be employed upon a bottle having a tapering. neck,;and has particularly todo with the structural features where-by such placard is' maintained in an upright position 1 for best displaying thesubject matter appearing thereupon. I a

I Among the objects-of the present inventioniare includedthe following:

.An improved placard adapted tobe held upon a bottleneck by a plurality of supporting members. V .t V ,A unique combination of a holding means with a placard whereby the display matter upon such placard is ,heldupright in two i spread apart. vertical planes.

t Unique, means interlocking the parts of the placard whereby the relation predetermined for thE PB-ItSTthGPGOfdS maintained during .display. w I a a Novel structuralfeatures whereby a placard maybe placed: about a bottle and held in position thereon,fullydisplaying all .of the subject matter imprinted thereupon.-

These,'and such other objects as may hereinafter appear, are obtained by the novel construction, unique combinatiomand improvedv arrangement of the several parts of the placard, two forms of which are illustratedvin the accompanying single sheet of drawings, injwhich -Figure li's a plan view of forming the placard a Figure 2 is a front View thereof showing a blank for its application about a bottle;

Figure 3 is a side elevation ofthe placard shown in Figure 2;

Figure .4 is a fragmentaryplan view of a blank showing a modified form of section v aligning means; and I Figure 5 is a reduced fragmentary plan of a slight modification of the invention;

Like referencecharacters are used to desr ignatesimilar partsin the drawings and in the description of the invention which is-hereinafter given.

Reference now should be had to Figures 1, 2 and 3, which figures should be read conjointly. a v

The main body of the blank is indicated by the numeral 10. This forms'thelmain section of the placard andmay be of any suitable size or configuratioin It may be adapted so far as its periphery is concerned to be cut to suitt-h'e advertising material or-illustration thereupon. a

Extending into the body of the placard or blank are two'arms Hand 12 which are formed by slits 13 and 14 at their opposite sides. Theupper ends of slits'l3 and 14 are hinged, being separated from body by scorelines 15 which permit of the arms 11 and 12 bein projected forwardly.- There is integral with-and projecting from the body 10, intermediate arms 11 and 12, a small section of material 16 which engages the bottle on which the placard is used to assist in maintaining the body 10 upright upon such bottle about which the placard maybe used;

The end of the member-16 may be clipped" off as a precaution to insure the proper assembly of the device and a quick understanding of the user whereby he may convert-the blank shown in Figure 1 into the placard shown in Figures Qand 3. r

Arms 11 and 12, at their lower ends, terminate in transverse score lines 17,said scores dividing said armsfroni a smaller display section 18 forming a part of the device Said score lines 17 are in alignment with'the topedge of section 18Wvhich extends therebetwee1i,-and also in alignment with slits 1711 which divide the blank from which the device is made'into the parts 10 and 18, such slits running from the periphery of the device to the outer'ends of score lines 17, so that when the arms 11 and 12 are projected outwardly until horizontal,the section 10 being vertical, the section 18 may be articulated with respect to said arms 11 and 12 also to provide a vertical display face generally smaller than the face of body 10; i j

Projecting downwardly from thebody 18 is'a generally circular portion 19 which is adapted to extend around bottle 23, in-a horizontal plane beneath and parallel to that occupied by the arms 11 and 12. The inner part of circular portion" adjacent to body 18 is riphery instead of being regular, it isniched as indicated at 20 and at opposite sides, to receive, when assembled for use, the points 22, upon the body 10 and which are formed thereon by the intersection of slits 13 and 17a.

Section 19, as is previously indicated, is bent inwardly in a plane below that occupied by arms 11 and 12, the niches 20 being filled by the points 22 so that the section 10 and the section 18, both employed for advertising purposes, will be held in a substantially vertical position and particularly so when a bottle 23 is inserted upwardly through the opening surrounded by the circular portion 19 and through the opening intermediate the arms 11 and 12, and sections 10 and 18.

The diameter of circular portion 19 is generally less than the width of the face of member 18. Intermediate the two, there are aligned scores 21, the inner and adjacent ends of which terminate in the periphery of the central lower arcuate edge of member 18. The outer ends of scores 21 terminate in slits 21 in alignment with the periphery of member 19 and dividing the outer and lower sections of member 18 therefrom. By the arrangement shown, the lower edges of member 18 are allowed to extend downwardly beyond the scores 21 hingedly connecting parts 18 and 19.

A second form of interlock between the parts is disclosed in Figure 4. The main body of the device illustrated in said figure is indicated 110, the arms 111 and 112, the slits forming said arms 113 and 114, the scores at the top of said arms 115 and the section between said arms 116. Projecting from the section 116 is a finger 122.

The scores separating the arms 111 and 112 from the body 118 are designated 117, the material between sections 110 and 118 being cut away as shown.

The lower bottle encircling member is designated 119, and it is separated from the part 110 by the scores 121 and slits 124. The central bottom edge of the material of member 118 is defined by said slits 124 and may be continued to a point where said slits would intersect, if extended. In said member 119, is a slot or niche 120 into which the finger 122 is adapted to be inserted when the device is in assembled relation. This device, like that illustrated in Figures 1, 2 and 3, is adapted to be assembled in such a manner that it is always maintained with two vertical spaced apart parallel display surfaces 110 and 118,

17a, 18, 19, and 21 of Figure 1, except that extension 219 is slightly more extensive than extension 19 and has two horizontal scores 23H thereacross, the inner ends of said scores 2th) across member 219 terminating in the opening therein, which opening is somewhat elliptical in configuration. In assembly, the llap 231 which comprises that part of member 219 belowthe scores 230 is turned vertically upward and inserted between the section 216 and the lower portion of body 210, with said section 216 at the front thereof and the body 210 at the back thereof. The'outer edge of part 231 is preferably straight to engage, in the assembled relation, the underside of members 211 and 212. This provides a diii'erenttypc of interlock from that illustrated in the preceding figures and one equally as eflicient.
