means cooperating therewith for conveniently dispensing the goods. This means is illustrated as comprising a slot 40 extending along and through the top side of the front pipe 21 and being first inserted into the plate 34 and the roll then'being swung into place, the top stud passing freely into the plate 35. The roll is then secured in place by turning the; screw 37 inwardly to the position shown in Fig. 5. The roll is normally in the vertical position, in which position it is directly over the base 10 and occupies, the least amount of floorspace. In this position the roll and stand, particularly with pleasing advertising on the shield 16, provides A spring or other. equivalent means is preferably provided on the frame for engaging the roll and preventing unwinding of the goods. The coiled spring 47 illustrated in the drawings. is provided with hooks at the ends which engage over the pipe 22 and within an eye 48 on the pipe 21, and the spring is preferably located at the upper portion of the roll when in the vertical position.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

. 1. A display and serving stand for rolled goods, comprising the combination of a base, a frame for supporting a roll of said goods, cooperating means carried by the base and frame for supporting the frame and roll in vertical and. horizontal positions on the base, and means carried by and movable to vertical and horizontal positions with the frame and providing a straight cutting edge extending along the roll and over which the goods can be drawn from the roll and along which edge the goods can be severed.

2. A display and serving stand for rolled goods, comprising the combination of a base, a frame for supporting a roll of said goods, and a horizontal stud carried by the frame and supported on the base, the frame and roll being pivotally movable to vertical and horizontal positions aboutthe axis of the stud and said frame including a pipe extending along the roll on the side thereof opposite to said stud and having a slot longitudinally therethrough for receiving When it is desired to dispense an order of. the goods, the pin 32 is withdrawn and the roll rotated to the horizontal position. The goods a blade to sever goods drawn over the pipe from the roll. 7

3. A display and serving stand for rolled goods,

comprising the combination of a -base, an upright on the base, a frame'mounted for pivotal movement to vertical and horizontal positions on the upright and adapted to support a roll of said goods, the frame comprising two relatively long and relative'ly spaced pipes and plates connecting the pipes at the. opposite ends thereof,

- means carried bythe plates and disposed substantially in the central longitudinal axis of the frame for receiving and supporting the end studs of a roll of said goods, ;-,the said pipes being disposed at diametrically oppositesides of said axis, and a releasablelatch for holding one of said studs in said centrally disposed position relative to the adjacent plate.
