DISPLAY CARD Filed Feb. 25, 1932 INVENTOR ZL rm w v ATTORNEYS Patented Mar. 14, 1933 LOUIS A. PHILLIPS, OF TENAFLY, NEW JERSEY DISPLAY CARD Application filed February 25, 1932. Serial No. 594,991.

Y The invention relates to a display card adapted to receive and hold in position articles such as tubes, bottles, etc., for display purposes, and aims primarily to provide a display card of the above nature which will be simple in construction and in which the article-holding parts will be securely held in operative position.

Further objects and-advantages ofthe in vention will bein part obvious and in part specifically mentioned in the description hereinafter contained which, taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawing, discloses a preferred embodiment of the 5 tion,

garded merely as illustrative. 1n

I ig. 1 is a face view of a card constructed in accordance with the invention and showing the article-holding tongue positioned in the plane of the card.

In the drawbut showing the article-holding tongue in operative position, a tube being indicated in dotted lines as held by said tongue.

Fig. 3 is a section on line 33 of Fig. 1, but with the tongue bent into article-holding shape, and looking in the. direction of the arrows.

The invention is disclosed as applied-to a display card 1 having a tongue 2 partially cut out therefrom along the general lines 3, 4 and 5, leaving the tongue 2 connected to the body of the card at its base 6.

The tongue is then bent as indicated in Fig. 2, to provide a ledge 8 extending transversely of the body of the card, the ledge 8 havinga recess 9 of suitable shape to receive the article to be displayed.

' In order to prevent the ledge 8 from shifting accidentally out of proper article-holding position, I provide said ledge with slots 10 adapted to engage with the edge portions 3 and 4 of the body of the card, when the ledge 8 is bent into operative position, thus preventing the tongue from shifting in directions other than a. movement parallel to the plane of the card, which is necessary to place the ledge 8 in operative position.

In the illustrated form of the invention the invensuch embodiment, however, to be reprovide an opening in the Fig. 2 is a section on line 22 of Fig. l

edge portions of r the ledge portion slots 10 areprovided with'laterally extending tabs 11 on ledge 8 whereby they are more T widely spaced than the width of the remaining portions of the tongue 2, and therefore properly positioned to engage with the edge portions 3 and 4 when the tongue is bent into operative shape. From a broader aspect, however, this particular construction although desirable, is not essential.

While a particular form of theinvention has been'disclosed it should be understood that changes may be-made therein without departing from the invention, within the scopeof the appended claims.

I claim:

l. A display card having a tongue struck out therefrom but integrally connected with the body of the card at the base of the tongue, said tongue having a portion adapted to be bent to provide an article-holding ledge and body of said card When so bent, said ledge portion being provided with slots adapted to receive adjacent the body ofthe card when is bent in transverse positron.

'2. A display card having a tongue struck out therefrom butintegrally connected with the body of thecard at the base of the tongue, the free end portion of said tongue being adapted to be bent transversely of the plane of the card to provide an article-receiving ledge and provide an opening in the body of said card when so bent, and said ledge portion being provided with laterally extending tabs adapted to engage adjacent edge portions of the body of the card when said ledge, portion is in the aforesaid transverse posi-' tion, to assist in holding such portion in transverse position.

In testimony whereof I name to this specification.-
