1 Claim. 1
This invention relates to a jewelry display block and more particularly tc such blocks that are used by jewelers to display rings and which provide both a support and attractively colored background for the ring or rings.
With such blocks it is desirable that the color oi' the background for the ring or rings be changed from time to time both better to disu play the stone of the particular ring being disn played and also to permit of seasonal color changes of the entire window display.
It is the principal object of the present invention to provide such a jewelry display block in which the face of the block can readily be removed and replaced with a face having a diierent color.
Another most important object is to provide such a block in which the major part of the block remains unchanged and in which only an inexpensive face plate need be changed to alter the effective color of the block and the background for the ring or rings.
Another object is to provide such a block which is very attractive in appearance and provides a desirable setting for jewelry display.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the following description and drawings in which:
Fig. l is a perspective view of a jewelry display block embodying my invention.
Fig. 2 is a similar View showing the face plate thereof-removed and arranged in reverse to one side.
Fig. 3 is a vertical section taken on the line 3 3, Fig. 2.
Fig. Afl is a front elevational View of a modied form of the invention designed to display a plurality of rings.
Fig. 5 is a vertical section taken on line 5-5, Fig. fl.
In the preferred form of the invention shown in Figs. l through 3, the jewelry display block comprises a base l@ which can be made of wood and oi any suitable form. On this base is secured, as by glue, a backing block il which can also be made of wood and can be secured to the base it by gluerl'his backing block il can be of any suitable connguration and is shown as being oi' triangular shape in fore-andaft section so as to present a straight back face i2 and an inclined iront face lil. The backing block il is shown as being covered over all of its exposed faces with a facing cloth it such as Velvet. This velvet lfl can be secured in any suitable manner and is preferably of a neutral tone so as te be compatible with various shades and colors of fac- (Gl. 24S-$3) ing plates which are subsequently applied to the backing block il as hereinafter described.
The hacking block ii is shown as provided at the approximate center oi its iront inclined face i3 with a horizontal slot or recess l5 which extends perpendicularly to the face IS part way through the backing block il, In the slot are inserted a pair of horizontal cushions it. Each oi these cushions iii is composed of a felt pad I8 adhesively secured to a cardboard backing strip i9, and the cushions are arranged with these backing strips engaging the top and bottoni of the slot l5 and with the felt pads l in opposing relation to each other.
A cloth strip 2@ of silk or the like has its central part folded upon itself and inserted between the cushions it and has its ends arranged against the forward face of the cloth facing le adjacent the slot. The ring (not shown) has its band part inserted into the slot l5 between the folds of the cloth strip 2% so that its setting is displayed at the front of the block, the felt pads l 6 removably holding the ring in position.
The invention is directed to a removable face plate, indicated generally at lli, for the jewelry display block. This facing plate is shown as comprising a pair of cardboard plates 26 and 2t arranged one in front of the other and both being of the same shape and generally conforming to the outline of the front face I3 of the backing block il.
Both oi` these cardboard plates t5 and 28 are provided with central horizontal slots 29, 30 which aline with each other1 and also with the ring receiving grooves formed between the folds of the cloth strip 2li in the recess between the cushions ld. A pair of pins 3l are secured to the face plate 25 to project rearwardly therefrom into holes 32 provided in the backing block il. For this purpose each pin 3i is provided with a flat head 33, this head being interposed between the two cardboard sheets 26, 28 and extending through a hole provided in the rear cardboard sheet 28.
The removable face plate 25 is covered with a facing 3d of velvet or the like. velvet facing 35 has its edge part 3E extending around the edges of the two cardboard sheets ZS, 28, and secured, as by glue, to the marginal part of the rear face of the rear cardboard sheet 28. At its center this facing 35 is provided with a hole 38 and the material around the margin of this hole 33 is inserted between the two cardboard sheets 2e and 28 to provide a nnished frame for the ring to be displayed.
