Application January 25, 1951, Serial No. 207,715v 1 I 1 Claim. 1

This invention relates generally to displays and more particularly to those displays by which the articles, to be sold are supported, form a part of the display.

It is an object of the present invention to provide a display card embodying the articles to be sold wherein the articles per se combine with the configuration of the display to present a unique eye-appealing device which will attract the attention of the prospective purchaser.

It is a further object of the present invention to combine resilient elements, such as, erasers with a support therefor, such as a display card to provide a saleable article wherein the erasers form relief portions of a configurated design, such as for example, eyes and nose of a face; headlights and tires of a motor vehicle.

It is another object of the present invention to utilize erasers each having a reduced cylindrical projecting portion Which is adapted to extend strumentalities of which the invention consists can be variously arranged and organized and that the invention is not limited to the precise arrangement and organization of the instrumentalities as herein shown and described.

In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of an eraser employable in the invention;

Fig. 2 is a display card having applied thereto eraser elements shown in Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a front elevational view of another form or design of display card carrying similar eraser elements; and

Fig. 4 is a sectional view taken through line 44 of Fig. 3.

Referring now more particularly to the drawing, there is disclosed in Fig. l, a preferred form or embodiment of a resilient element such as an eraser E, comprising a tapered body portion l from which extends a reduced cylindrical portion I! preferably provided with a bore I2. The bore 12 is adapted to receive the end of a pencil (not shown). A flange l 3 is formed at the juncture of portions I0 and II. It is understood that the form or construction of the resilient element E depicted in Fig. 1 is by way of example only,

2 and that the shape, form or construction may be varied as desired.

A card which may be a display or other articlecarrying member having any desired configuration or contour is employed upon which may be printed, embossed or engraved any suitable figure, face or device which together with a plurality of selectively disposed resilient elements or erasers E such as shown in Fig. 1, inserted in openings provided therein, make up a desired caricature or other object wherein the said elements or erasers provide the relief portions.

By way of example, Fig. 2 depicts a card l4 simulating the upper part of a clown wherein the projecting elements or erasers E1 form the eyes and the projecting element or eraser E2 forms the tongue. For this purpose card I 4 is provided with openings through which are projected at the front of the face IS the tubular or cylindrical portion ll of the eraser E, the flange l3 abutting against the rear surface of the card 14. Card [4 is further provided with an opening at the mouth l6 of the clowns face through which rearwardly projects the tubular or cylindrical portion ll of eraser E. The head portion H] of the eraser E projects outwardly and simulates the tongue of the clowns face. The flange l3 of eraser E abuts against the mouth It of the clowns face. There may be provided a hinged stand ll.

Fig. 4 simulates a motor vehicle 20, in the fender portions M of which are openings receivin the tubular or cylindrical portions ll of the erasers E, simulating headlights E3. The card 20 is hinged at the bottom to provide the rearwardly extending flange 22 providing a support for the erasers E projecting through suitable openings therein. The heads ll! of the erasers simulate tires E4. A suitable hinged stand 23 may be provided at the rear of card 20.

From the foregoing it is apparent that there has been provided a device comprising a card forming part of the device simulating a depictable object carrying thereon articles for sale. the articles formin other parts of the device completing said object, and in which the card has openings formed therein arranged in a predetermined fashion, through which project elements, such as erasers which comprise said articles, each of the elements having a preferably tapered head portion and a preferably tubular reduced portion, the flange formed at the juncture of these portions abutting against a face of the card.

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

A display device comprising a stifl cardboard sheet, said sheet being shaped and imprinted on one face to define the head or an animate object, there being through apertures formed in said card and defining eye and mouth openings, and a plurality of erasers each including an outwardly taperinghead and a reduced tubular portion andinserted through said eye and mouth openings, one of said erasers having its reduced tubular portion extending inwardly through said mouth opening so that its tapering head simulates a tongue, and a pair of said erasers having:

their reduced tubular portions extending outwardly through said eye openings to simulate eyes.
