Application November 12, 1937, Serial No. 174,140

18 Claims. (01. 248-174) This invention relates to a holder for menus, place-cards, etc., and for displaying articles such as bottles, boxes, and items of jewelry.

Generally, the invention seeks to provide a Fig. 10 is a similar view of another form of the invention shown in Fig. 9.

Fig. 11 is a side view showing the manner of obtaining access to the matches.

Fig. 4 is an end view of another form of holder. As shown in Fig. 4, one of the upright members Fig. 5 is a vertical sectional view of still ansuch as. l6 may be made somewhat shorter than E formg the member IE to afford greater facility in intro .f Fi 6 i a mil r V w Of another modified ducing a card between them.

line 21 between the base support portions l9 and 20 and thus eliminate the tabs 25.

The foregoing structures, while quite desirable, would necessarily have to be formed of double coated stock if all of the exposed surfaces are to bear the mentioned ornamentation, etc., since the exposed surfaces of the upright members II and it are the opposite surface of the exposed surfaces of the base support portions 1 8 and 28. For this reason it is desirable to form one of the base portions such as I! with a slotted opening 88 into which the upright member I! may be introduced before that member and the other member I! are passed through the slit 26. It is thus seen that the previously exposed surfaces of said members are now in back-to-back relation and, therefore, concealed, and that the previously concealed surfaces which form a continuation of the exposed surfaces of the portions l9 and 20, are now exposed. This holder may, therefore, be formed of single coated stock, bearing printed matter only on one face.- The opening 88, when the holder is in use, is entirely concealed, and the outward appearance thereof is the same as that of the forms previously described.

In the form of the invention shown in Fig. 6, the upright members l5 and I6 may be made relatively short and in this instance may be used .for supporting and displaying an article of port an article such as uie bottle B which is adapted to rest upon the edge 34 formedin the upright members and to be held in upright position by the outwardly flared portions 35 of the spaced upright portions 82 and 33. The base support portions i8 and 20 may each be cut away as at 86 to accommodate the bottle, and in other respects the holder may be similar to those previously described.

As shown in Fig. 9, the holder may have incorporated therein a match pack 31 held in position between the upright portions l5 and It". In the present instance, the portion I 5 is extended to provide a flap 88 adapted to cover the match pack and be tucked between said match pack and the free end of the member li The latter may be provided with a match-strildng surface 38 and the menu or display card C may be supported by the holder by introduction between 55 the upright I6 and the flap 38. This structure may also follow in other details those previously described.

An alternate form of holder in which a match pack is incorporated, is illustrated in Figs. 10 and 11. In this form the previously mentioned flap 88 is extended to terminate at or adjacent the base and is not intended to be lifted for exposure of the matches. Access to the matches may be had by providing fold or score lines 40 and 4| transversely on the portions and 88 and also providing a slot or opening 42 in the portion 48 which connects said members, and pressing downward on the portion 43 so that the portions l5 and 38 assume the folded condition shown in Fig. 11. The matches are now accessible for extraction of one of them and upon release of the pressure on the portion 48, the members i5 and 88 will spring upward to again conceal the matches and in this condition the match-striking surface 89 may be safely used without possibili y auasae of accidental ignition of the match pack by flying sparks or the flame of the ignited match. In

other respects, this form of the invention follows those previously described.

While the invention has been illustrated in several preferred forms of its embodiment, it is apparent that the principles set forth may be incorporated in other forms not here disclosed,-

without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed. Hence, the prior art rather than the instant disclosure should form the basis of interpretation of the scope of the invention as defined in the following claims.
